The government has launched a summer jobs site in a bid to stave off labour shortages that have hit UK businesses across most sectors.
The collision of the pandemic and Brexit has driven workforce shortages across construction, retail, hospitality and transport.
The lorry driver shortage has also pushed production delays across other sectors, as supermarkets feared empty shelves earlier this month.
“We know this has been a challenging time but we are serious about supporting Britain’s workforce as we build back better – brighter days are ahead,” employment minister Mims Davies said.
The online platform, which can be found on the government’s website, has more than 20,000 roles on offer.
Job vacancies are finally above pre-pandemic levels as of this week, according to the Office for National Statistics.
Many young people, who have traditionally relied on hospitality and retail for work, have been locked out of employment under the UK’s Covid-19 restrictions.
But as restrictions ease, businesses that have had their doors closed for the past 15 months will be seeking to bolster their workforces to keep up with pent-up demand.
