Understanding the structural changes in labour supply in the UK post Covid and in the context of Brexit

The UK and other governments internationally want to build back better work following the Covid pandemic. Along with Leeds University, IER hosts ReWAGE, an independent expert advisory group modelled on SAGE, which supports the government’s strategic response to the recovery and renewal of work and employment in the UK as it tackles the impact of Covid-19. Core funding is provided by the ESRC. ReWAGE produces evidence papers and policy briefs through a series of expert sub-groups.

Through funding provided by the NHS Confederation, a sub-group has been formed to examine the underlying structural changes to the UK labour market, with a focus on supply bottlenecks, including for the NHS. The sub-group is convened by Professor Jonathan Portes of King´s College London. The work of the sub-group will be completed over summer 2022.
