Less chance for new migrant to get a job in UK?

The UK Government has tightened the resident labour market test, which prevents employers from offering skilled jobs to overseas workers unless workers in the United Kingdom have had a chance to apply for them first. The test now requires employers to advertise these jobs in Jobcentre Plus offices for up to two weeks as well as advertising by another method in the codes of practice.

Advertising jobs in Jobcentre Plus is straightforward and free of charge - employers can submit their advertisements online, by email, by fax or over the phone, in a process that can take as little as five minutes.

The resident labour market test works as part of the United Kingdom's points-based system, which ensures that migrants from outside Europe have the skills we need. The test covers skilled jobs such as primary school teachers, some nurses, architects, farm managers, hotel managers, graphic designers and air traffic controllers.

The UK Border Agency has launched an advertising campaign to make sure that employers know their responsibilities.
