Immigration changes help close skills gap

Immigrants wanting to work in the UK will be categorised into five different tiers based on their qualifications, age and skills.

Immigrants wanting to work in the UK will be categorised into five different tiers based on their qualifications, age and skills.

Most overseas IT workers will fit in the highest tier alongside doctors and entrepreneurs. They will be allowed into the country without a specific job offer and can bring their families with them. Those with less specialised engineering and IT skills will fall into the second tier and will also find it easy to come to the UK for work, providing they have a job offer.

"This new system will give employers and education institutions a stronger role in the managed migration system and introduce a more transparent and objective method of points-based structured decision-making,” says Home Secretary Charles Clarke.
