EU workers look elsewhere for jobs as UK loses appeal – Telegraph.co.uk

Meanwhile the number of searches for Irish jobs from the UK are up 11pc.

“Overall, we are seeing a sharper and longer decline in interest in working in the UK than in previous ‘shock drops’ following last year’s referendum,” said economist Mariono Mamertino at Indeed. “As Brexit moves from rhetoric to reality, the strain on Britain’s strong but tight labour market will worsen.

“While European traffic to the UK has declined, Indeed is noting that countries like Ireland, followed by France and Germany, could be benefiting from additional interest levels from European jobseekers.”

British businesses rely heavily on the ability to attract workers from the rest of the EU. One million jobs created in the UK since 2008 have been filled by workers from other EU countries, amounting to 44.3pc of all new jobs over the period, Indeed found.
