UK job market is highly competitive.
There is big shortage of jobs in the country to the extent that for most vacancies there are more than 50+ applicants however it is strange that group of entrepreneurs and multinational organizations in the UK still lobbying & demanding that UK should allow more job seekers from abroad.
As of now UK government has allow unlimited number of ICT tier 2 work visa each year on which foreign employees don’t pay any taxes on 70% of their salary as it is counted as allowances.
This unlimited ICT tier 2 visa are in addition to 336000 net migration in the UK this year.
I wonder how justify is the work visa policy where UK citizens are not able to find any jobs and foreign businesses are allowed to do visa fraud & bring foreign workers in the name that UK should be open to business.
As you can see on the various screenshots, the number of applicants for each vacancy on Linkedin UK are more than 70+
