Australia faces a huge skills gap in today’s time, and it is a great setback for the Australian employment market. These skills crisis have brought a significant change in the employment landscape, with alarming statistics reported by recruitment agencies as well as by the employer themselves. It is a real struggle for the Australian economy to meet its need and requirements for skilled employees. The major skills gap in the job market is a huge disadvantage to the expanding and resilient economy of Australia. The current shortage of skilled workers is being made up by targeting workers from Europe, and more specifically from the UK. The country has been making up for this shortfall traditionally by getting skilled workers from elsewhere, rather than within the country itself. This speaks for the fact that the Australian economy is facing a major setback.
