UK firms 'facing a skills shortage'

Firms across the UK are facing a shortage of skills as they aim to find the best candidates to fill vacant roles, a new report reveals.

Finding people to fill positions in financial companies is particularly difficult at the moment, according to the results of the Robert Half Global Financial Employment Monitor, which shows that 67 per cent of respondents are finding it either challenging or very challenging to find skilled professionals for certain roles.

The poll also found that 56 per cent of managers said they are at least somewhat concerned about retaining their staff in the coming year – an increase on the 45 per cent seen last year – while 54 per cent of employers are concerned about the threat of losing top performers.

Dr Phil Sheridan, from Robert Half UK, said it is clear that some markets are in a state of transition at the moment.

"[There are] reported difficulties finding skilled staff and a growing concern among senior executives of how best to hold on to their star performers. Finding and retaining skilled professionals has become increasingly challenging," he noted.

As a recruitment provider to many of the UK’s major banks, mortgage lenders and building societies Aaron Wallis have a deserved reputation within Financial Services recruitment. Their dedicated FS consultants recruit sales professionals across Retail Banking and Financial Services including IFA’s and Mortgage Broking.
