MAC Business Survey

The North East Brexit Group was formed to provide a collective voice for the region in order to contribute to the ongoing national dialogue around the UK leaving the European Union. It includes networks representing businesses, education, trade unions, local authorities and voluntary organisations. The group has developed a rolling work programme that responds to current possible scenarios, in particular the possibility of a ‘No Deal’ outcome.

The Migration Advisory Committee published its final report on European Economic Area Migration in October 2018. It made a number of significant proposals for a new scheme including proposals for the types of posts and levels of income associated with posts, which would imply tight visa rules. Building on the NE Brexit Groups’ response to the earlier call for evidence, and the evidence that this is an area of particular concern for employers across the economy, the Brexit Group is conducting an online survey to understand business perceptions about specific proposals and recommendations in the report, specifically to understand the proportions of staff that would be affected by the proposed changes to the migration rules.  This information will be used to inform the regional response to the White Paper that is likely to be published in early 2019

The survey is now ‘live’ until the new year and we will be promoting engagement through the North East Growth Hub and social media. We are also reaching out the sector representatives to disseminate across their business networks, and therefore, we would greatly appreciate your support in disseminating the survey.
