Many recent upheavals have impacted the UK’s engineering industry. The outbreak of the Coronavirus forced many organisations to change dramatically and embrace more flexible working models, however, it is the effects of Brexit that are having the greatest impact on UK engineering and manufacturing employers. The engineering and manufacturing sector is already feeling the impact Brexit has had on the free movement of talent across European countries.
