Proper hours campaign could highlight need for UK immigration

Richard Lawrence managing director at Resourcing Solutions, a company which places candidates into the transport and construction sectors, told onrec.com: "In an ideal world, workers of all levels and across all sectors would only put in their contracted hours. However skills shortages, particularly in the transport and construction sectors are at an all time high." He added that employers are "struggling to fill positions" as work towards the 2012 Olympics in London has seen a rise in companies' workloads. UK immigration has been touted as a possible solution to filling Olympics 2012 jobs.

The head of the Migration Advisory Council, Professor David Metcalf, told the BBC earlier in the year that the labour shortages brought on by the Olympics could be solved by lifting the ban on non-EU unskilled workers entering the UK.

Anyone interested in getting a better understanding of their current position under UK visa regulations should request a call from a qualified UK Visa Bureau migration consultant to see if they are eligible for migration to the UK, or call direct on Freephone 0800 043 7011.
