The government has strict rules for the recruitment of skilled workers from outside the European Economic Area, but those restrictions are relaxed for jobs which are placed on the shortage occupation list because they're difficult to fill.

英国政府对招聘来自欧洲经济区以外的专业技术类工作者有严格的规定,但对于那些由于难以填补而被列入短缺职业名单的工作,这些限制可被放宽。

The Migration Advisory Committee says the list should be widened to cover nine percent of jobs in the labour market, compared to one per cent now. Among the reasons it gives are lower unemployment, a rising number of vacancies and a reduction in the supply of workers from within the EU.

英国移民咨询委员会表示,这个名单应相应扩大,以涵盖劳动力市场中9%的就业岗位,而目前此比例仅为1%。咨询委员会列出的原因包括失业率下降、职位空缺增多以及欧盟内部劳动力供应减少。
