Brexit a double-edged sword for the UK labour market

Five years from the seismic Brexit referendum of June 2016, the UK labour market is feeling its consequences. We have seen a notable shift in international job search patterns on Indeed UK. The news is mixed, with both positive and negative developments. EU jobseekers are less inclined to search for UK jobs, with lower-paid positions seeing the greatest fall-off. These are jobs most likely to be affected by new skilled worker visa rules. We see evidence of a clear Brexit effect, rather than just a pandemic travel effect. Falling searches from the EU contrast with rebounding searches from non-EU countries and from Ireland, whose citizens are unaffected by post-Brexit immigration policy thanks to the Common Travel Area. Non-EU interest in higher-paid jobs has actually registered a substantial increase. The changes in international jobseeker interest in UK positions suggest that the shift in the UK’s immigration regime is working very much the way the government intends — to “reduce overall levels of migration and give top priority to those with the highest skills”.

Apple has been rated the best tech sector company to work for in Britain, according to data released by the world’s biggest job site, Indeed. The global tech giant landed the top spot in Indeed’s top-rated tech employers category, which launched for the first time this year and is based on hundreds of thousands of reviews by employees past and present.  The California-based maker of iconic products like the iPhone and iPad opened its first European store in London 15 years ago, and it now employs 2,500 people in the capital alone. Its 6,500 UK-based staff enjoy a wide range of perks, and praise for these benefits features prominently in the reviews of Apple posted on Indeed. The highest scoring homegrown tech company was second-placed GDS Group, the Bristol-based event, research and technology services provider.  The global IT, networking and cybersecurity titan Cisco came third in a ranking which was dominated by American tech firms; just three of the top 15 are UK-based companies. Last year Apple secured the top spot in Indeed’s overall ranking of Britain’s most highly-praised employers. Its repeat success can be traced back to a combination of good rates of pay, the offer of free or discounted tech to employees, health and wellness benefits and an enjoyable workplace culture.  Table: Britain’s best tech sector employers
