Germany looks outside EU to fill skills gaps

first_img Previous Article Next Article A radical proposal to allow 50,000 skilled foreign workers from outside theEU to enter Germany every year has been put forward by a high-level independentcommission in the country. The plan has been drawn up to counter rapid population decline and growingskills shortages. German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder said the proposal formed a good basis fora new immigration law that the government hopes to pass this year. Germany’s 82 million population is projected to fall by 23 million by 2050,and demographers have predicted that hundreds of thousands of immigrants willbe needed every year to fill the gaps. The independent commission recommends that in the first year of theimmigration programme, 20,000 workers should be granted permanent residency,20,000 be given five-year permits to work in sectors where there are skillsshortages and 10,000 should get temporary permits. European HR consultant Peter Reid thought the proposal was progressive, butwas concerned it could lead to a “brain drain” from countries seekingto join the EU, such as Poland. “I have general concerns that the most skilled members of the workforcewill be the ones that leave these countries,” he said.

Movebubble uses Quintain cash to set up shop in Manchester

first_imgThe company behind renting app Movebubble has opened an operation in Manchester following build-to-rent giant Quintain’s decision to take a 10% stake in the business last month.Movebubble claims that ‘thousands’ of letting agency branches across London have already signed up to the service including corporates JLL and CBRE as well as many independents. The company also says the service is popular with agents because it offers an alternative and more affordable marketing platform compared to the big property portals.The app is free for tenants to use, currently offers over 25,000 properties to rent in London and has been downloaded over 100,000 times on Google Play.It acts as a lead generator and viewings organiser for letting agents and enables tenants to rate an agent’s service via a star system.Movebubble now hopes to replicate its success in Manchester, which after London is one of the UK’s busiest build-to-rent and private rental markets. Part of the Quintain investment in Movebubble is to help fund the expansion of its separate build-to-rent app for operators in the market, as well as the accelerate the business overall.“The latest round of investment from Quintain has enabled us to take Movebubble UK wide,” says its CEO Aidan Rushby (left).“Manchester has seen huge changes in the property sector over the last few years, and many of our partners are developing purpose-built homes for renters there.”Charlotte Malone, Business Development Director at JLL, says that: “Movebubble’s innovative app technology allows JLL to connect and deliver a seamless service to the next generation of renters.” Manchester proptech quintain movebubble Aidan Rushby April 3, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
