Government consultation on the UK’s immigration system
Help shape the government’s future plans for immigration.
Earlier this year the government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to advise on the future immigration system including salary thresholds and skilled worker status in the UK.
The MAC’s feedback to government will influence the salary threshold that employers will need to meet to hire international workers and the occupations that are highlighted as ‘skilled’ and will receive some exceptions. As part of this the government is considering moving to a form of the Australian ‘points based system’ which prioritises applicants for jobs based on their characteristics, such as education, language skills and work experience.
ACCA will also be responding on behalf of members and our employer networks to ensure the sector is consulted throughout this process and is able to make representations for manageable salary thresholds and points based priorities.
You can also respond directly by completing this survey which is mostly multiple choice answers, and should take around 4-5 minutes to complete. Your responses will remain anonymous and will be submitted in aggregate with others.
In order to report back in time to meet the government’s EU exit timelines, the MAC has set a short turnaround for this evidence. Therefore, where possible responses should be returned by 31 October.
