While there are plenty of reasons for agency land to feel nervous about a post-Brexit labour market, one positive outcome could be a relaxing of visa requirements for Commonwealth states.
Media professionals from Australia, New Zealand and Canada represent the largest portion of our emigrant candidate base, and are currently dependent on working holiday visas or EU ancestry to enter the UK.
An ideal scenario, where EU citizens are still allowed freedom of movement, while members of the Commonwealth could move to the UK quickly and cheaply, would be a huge boon for agencies that are facing an ever-increasing amount of competition for their talent from in-house and consultancies.
Julie Bishop, the Australian foreign minister told the Times newspaper that her colleagues in government would be disappointed if the UK put more restrictive immigration conditions on Australian citizens than on those expected to be placed on arrivals from the European Union. Fellow Commonwealth members Canada and New Zealand reportedly share Bishop's concerns and would broach the issue at free trade talks following the UK's exit from the EU.
