As East European workers leave UK in droves what effect will the exodus have on the Care Sector?

As Eastern European workers return home in droves, how will the care sector recruit sufficient numbers of staff to fill their vacancies for care workers, which are already on the Government’s official Shortage Occupations list?

Immigration figures released by the Home Office this week show that last year the total number of ‘A8’ citizens coming to Britain from the former Eastern Bloc states dropped by more than a quarter from 109,000 to 79,000. But the numbers heading back to their homelands more than doubled, from 25,000 to 66,000.

In order to recruit staff from outside the UK employers must register as Sponsors under Tier 2 of the Points based system.
