This week the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) published an interim review of the shortage occupation list, updating the list it published last autumn. The government will now consider the recommendations before publishing the final shortage occupation list. 

Border and Immigration Minister Phil Woolas said: 

“We welcome the publication of this stricter shortage jobs list ? only where there are shortages of local workers can employers recruit migrants to fill jobs through this route. The Government will now consider the advice of the Migration Advisory Committee before publishing the final list. 

“The shortage list works alongside the toughened resident labour market test which means British workers and those already here get first crack at jobs. Businesses are being warned about these tough new rules through an advertising campaign that starts today.”
