S4W support CIOSLEP understand post BREXIT labour market needs

After research from S4W Ltd, the LEP and Cornwall Council called on the Government to make sure future migration laws deliver the right skills for the Cornish economy to prosper after we exit the EU.

Our research showed that Cornish farms are already unable to fully harvest crops this year due to a sharp fall in migrant labour and changes to migration policy after Brexit could lead to multi-million pound losses to the Cornish economy, especially if the horticultural industry can’t access the skills and workforce it needs.  Our research found that following the Brexit vote, recruitment immediately became more difficult for horticultural farms, harvests could not be lifted in full and staffing requirements were already dwindling to 65% of need.  Click here to view our full report.
