The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) published its latest report last week, making recommendations based on its third partial review of the shortage occupation lists for the UK and for Scotland.

MAC recommends that the pharmacists category on the UK shortage occupation list be expanded to include community pharmacists (those who work for private employers other than the NHS).

The MAC also recommends those orchestral musician jobs that are not for leaders or principals of internationally recognised UK orchestras be removed from the UK shortage occupation list.

The MAC does not recommend any other changes to the UK shortage occupation lists. The recommended Scotland list is unchanged.

As requested by the government, the MAC carries out a partial review of the shortage occupation list every six months. The MAC currently plans to publish a full review of the shortage occupation list in the autumn of 2010.

All the occupations included in the original MAC recommended shortage occupation lists in September 2008 have now been reviewed at least once.

The MAC was formed to provide independent, evidence-based advice on migration to the government. This includes advice on occupations where shortages in skilled labour exist where migration could help meet the needs of the UK economy.
