The UK’s growing talent shortage continues to create challenges for employers looking to fill roles with candidates who have the right mix of experience and skills. According to our recent Skills Revolution report, nearly two-thirds (64%) of companies do not have the skills required to implement their digital transformation strategy and capitalise on growth potential. At the same time, acute skill shortages continue – in cloud, cyber security, system and software engineering, software development, data analysis and more. Access to global candidates can provide new avenues for employers to find the talent they need.

However, with changes following Brexit, potential tax implications and a host of other hurdles to consider, access to global talent can sometimes feel like a pipedream. But are there solutions to these hurdles and can access to global talent be easily achieved?
