Call for evidence on the shortage occupation list

Close date: 24 June 2020

The Government calls for evidence from the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) on the inclusion of occupations at Recognised Qualification Framework (RQF) level 3 to 5.

From January 2021, occupations where the skills required are RQF3 or above can be included on the shortage occupation list. The review seeks views from organisations that employ or plan to recruit medium-skilled migrant workers (RQF level 3 to 5) to get a better understanding of the roles that are being filled and the salaries paid. The MAC has been asked to submit its report to the Government by September 2020.
