Talent shortages 'will emerge in 2011'
The emergence of talent shortages in 2011 will be hard to avoid as the economy begins to grow, one sector body has predicted.
That is the opinion of Kevin Green, chief executive of the recruitment and Employment Confederation, who said that one of the things that will re-emerge as the country's economy recovers is talent and skills shortages.
He noted that the country has not yet tackled the issue of getting young people to have the right type of skills and employability, while many students are not studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects and gaining right type of qualifications.
The best way to increase the number of people suitable for certain roles, including technical sales jobs, is to encourage young people to gain the required qualifications and skills.
It comes after recent research carried out by the British Educational Research Association showed that many science graduates are struggling to find work, despite claims of a shortage throughout the industry.
The report suggested that a reason why many are struggling is a failure to use the services of recruitment agencies to match them to the best roles.
