According to the Centre for Policy Studies (CPS), there is a shortage of skilled workers in about 90% of technology companies, and 61% of these companies have difficulty in finding staff with practical or technical skills for the job. A lot of companies are having difficulties in recruiting skilled workers in the UK, and as such, the new immigration system is being blamed for the inability to recruit foreigners. This report was funded by the Founder of Deliveroo, Will Shu. He said that the company prefers US workers because they possess the skills required. Also, another person from the e-commerce industry reported that the company recruits technology staff from Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook because of the inability to find a UK worker with skills in the e-commerce sector. A report from the Herding Unicorns suggests that a targeted visa scheme should be made to give firms with the potential of becoming “Unicorn companies,” the ability to hire from abroad. It could involve expanding the number of technology visas under the Exceptional Talent (Tier 1) route; however, the best benefit would be gotten from a class of Unicorn Visas which fits the requirements. The report insists that the vacancies in organizations with great potential should be given the same treatment as other professions on the shortage list. A certificate of sponsorship would be given to organizations based on qualifications to aid in attracting the best and excellent brains from around the world.
