Global Talent Mobility: Ensuring UK competitiveness one year on: our scorecard

This report, produced jointly with EY and the City of London Corporation, looks at progress made since the introduction of the UK’s 2021 immigration system.

It shows that while real progress has been made in removing unnecessary barriers and expanding the immigration routes available to skilled talent, businesses continue to struggle with process related issues. It suggests that in many cases, relatively minor tweaks to the UK’s current mobility framework could go a long way to helping businesses access the high-skilled talent they need to grow and compete globally.

The report also sets out a number of recommendations to continue to improve the UK’s immigration system, along with other ideas to help improve the UK’s access to global talent and aid UK firms to access and export to the high-growth markets of the future.
