UK jobs 'go unfilled' as skills shortage bites, study warns The NHS and the cyber security sector are among the worst affected, a report says, as demand for permanent staff grows. Image: The NHS is becoming 'increasingly reliant' on short-term cover, says the Recruitment and Employment Confederation Employers are struggling to fill jobs as demand for staff rises and EU workers leave the UK in their droves with Brexit looming, according to a new study. The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) found that while demand for permanent staff continues to grow and is the strongest in almost two years, its research among 400 recruitment agencies recorded that the number of candidates has plummeted. The sectors with the strongest demand for permanent staff in May included the NHS and engineering, while the slowest increase in demand was for construction workers. Demand for temporary staff was also highest in the nursing, medical and care sectors. Tom Hadley, REC's director of policy, said the challenges facing the next government are stark, adding: "Official data shows unemployment has dropped to the lowest level since 1975, and EU citizens are leaving the UK in droves. "Employers seeking to fill vacancies are running out of options. Skill shortages are causing headaches in many sectors. "The NHS, for example, is becoming increasingly reliant on short-term cover to fill gaps in hospital rotas because there aren't enough nurses to take permanent roles.
