The Brexit vote may be deterring EU candidates from putting themselves forward for UK-based HVAC jobs according to specialist recruiters at Thornhvac.
The company, which sources candidates for roles in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning sectors, said Brexit had caused uncertainty, particularly with those seeking work in Britain from overseas.
Thornhvac Director, Jason Thornhill said: “EU candidates are ideal for many internal sales roles in the HVAC sector because they are flexible about where they are based.
“Brexit has caused a lot of uncertainty in Europe and this seems to be putting off overseas jobseekers.
“We’d like to send a message out that people from EU countries still have a right to work and live in the UK, and probably still will do when Britain leaves Europe.”
The UK has two years to figure out the exact terms of the nation’s departure from the EU. Jason said the change would bring with it various challenges and opportunities for the UK and EU recruitment industry.
“The Brexit process could actually work in favour of those looking for work as competition for jobs drops off with many job hunters assuming it’s not a good time to apply for jobs.
“Our message to EU candidates is that there are some excellent jobs available in the HVAC industry and some exciting career opportunities.”
