• Making Migration Work For Manufacturers

    A recent report published by EEF ‘Making Migration Work For Manufacturers’ assesses the roles played by EU nationals across UK manufacturing and the essential skills they provide. The report is based on a survey of 243 manufacturing employers, regional focus groups and one-to-one discussions with manufacturers.

    Some key statistics from the report include:

    • More than three-quarters of manufacturers recruit EU nationals.
    • On average, EU nationals make up 11% of the total manufacturing workforce.
    • 64% of employers cite an insufficient number of UK nationals applying for jobs within the industry as a reason why they recruit EU nationals.
