Is The Youth Mobility Scheme Visa A Means To Overcome Labour Shortage?
Today’s blog is about the youth mobility partnership scheme the UK Authorities are favouring to deal with the labour shortage in the country.
Let us start by understanding what a Youth Mobility Scheme Visa is.
Any applicant who wishes to work in the UK can apply for the Youth Mobility Scheme Visa if they are 18 to 30 years of age. The visa is only open to nationals of a few countries.

Now, let us see how the labour shortage is making the government favour this scheme.
The country is facing labour shortages in the hospitality, construction, and manufacturing sectors. The businesses responding to this shortage urged Chancellor Jeremy Hunt to relax the immigration rules.
The lack of workers is causing wages to rise, making firms stop growing, stated the director general of CBI (Confederation of British Industry).
The business owners suggested that the government can expand the list for occupation shortages to offer easier work visas for overseas workers in specified jobs.
The authorities can also link specific economic project routes or student and graduate visa routes to overcome the labour shortage.
