How to get a job in the UK

By Matthew HounsellA new study has found that a lack of English proficiency in UK universities could affect your chances of landing a job. 

The study, which was commissioned by the Universities UK, found that employers were more likely to take a look at applicants with a lower proficiency rate, as compared to those with higher proficiency rates. 

Researchers analysed a sample of 1,500 employers looking to fill a role in a university’s new human resources department. 

It found that the more highly qualified an employer was in the department, the more likely they were to hire someone with a language barrier. 

“The results are encouraging,” said Kate Brown, chair of the universities UK recruitment committee. 

She said employers were increasingly looking to hire for people who could speak English well.

“The study shows that if you can’t speak English, then the chances are that the job offer is less likely,” Ms Brown said. 

But, the study found that, while some employers would still consider someone with the same proficiency level, it was not always the case.

The study found employers with a higher proficiency rate were more willing to hire a person with a better English level.

It also found that those with lower proficiency levels were less likely to hire people with a less English-speaking background.

“It’s a little bit of a mixed bag,” Ms Smith said.

She said she believed employers were trying to attract a diverse workforce to boost job creation, but it could be harder to recruit a team that has an average or higher level of English.

Ms Smith said she hoped the study would help people in the sector better understand their English skills and improve recruitment processes.

“We know there’s a lot of people in our industry who need to improve their English,” Ms Johnson said.

“They’re the ones who are going to be driving our growth and our jobs.”

“We need to work with them to help them develop their language skills and to ensure that they can learn more English, to help improve their job prospects.”
