As the UK continues to enjoy record rates of employment, recruiting the right people in the right place is becoming increasingly difficult for the retail industry. With the UK’s exit from the EU on the horizon the government has a significant task ahead in determining the status of EU colleagues in the UK and delivering a new immigration system for EU nationals that meets the needs of industry, EU member states and has the support of the public. This BRC webinar will present the retail industry’s asks of government ahead of a new immigration system and consider how the end of free movement may impact the future of the industry and the consumers it serves.
Presenter and host: Fionnuala Horrocks-Burns, Employment and Skills Policy Advisor, BRC
A Fair Brexit For Consumers
The goal of our A Fair Brexit for Consumers project is to support the Government in ensuring the best deal for consumers. An essential element is maintaining the choice and availability of affordable, quality products for consumers.
As part of this campaign we will be holding a series of online and live events. These events will support and promote the work we do and to provide our retail community with exclusive insight into how Brexit will affect them and their customers.
The 3 focus areas are people, regulation and tariffs.
