European interest in UK jobs plummets

To mark the five-year anniversary of the Brexit referendum, the world's largest job site Indeed has analysed the searches for UK jobs made by workers based overseas, both in the EU and beyond. The research reveals that searches from EU workers are down by a staggering 45% compared with 2016. Interest from EU workers has fallen most in lower-paid jobs such as hospitality and retail, down 41% since 2019 alone, while interest in higher paid roles such as those in tech, finance, medicine and engineering, is down 17%. However, the decline in Europeans' interest in higher paid jobs is offset by demand from non-EU countries, where clicks on higher paid jobs in the UK have increased by 39% since 2019.
