Data shows that, since last year, fewer workers from other EU countries are searching for UK jobs
The data, produced by jobs website Indeed, also showed more people from the UK are looking for employment abroad since the Brexit vote, especially in Ireland.
Searches for Irish jobs from the UK are up 11 per cent from last year, according to the website.
The UK does, however, remain the most popular European country among jobseekers, with 33.8 per cent of all searches on the site, down from 37.2 per cent last year.
Economist Mariono Mamertino said: “As Brexit moves from rhetoric to reality, the strain on Britain’s strong but tight labour market will worsen.”
He added: “While European traffic to the UK has declined, Indeed is noting that countries like Ireland, followed by France and Germany, could be benefiting from additional interest levels from European jobseekers.”

One million jobs created in the UK since 2008 have been filled by foreign EU workers, which adds up to 44.3 per cent of all new jobs over the time period, according to Indeed.
In March, overall unemployment in the UK fell to its joint lowest rate since 1975, despite Brexit fear-mongering.
Mr Mamertino warned: “With Europeans’ appetite for working in the UK already on the wane, if a non-EU Britain puts up legal barriers to EU workers coming here, or if the UK economy slumps in the wake of Brexit, European jobseekers won’t hesitate to look elsewhere.”

A survey released earlier this year found the UK would have still voted to leave the EU
Earlier this year, a survey by campaign group ‘Hope not Hate’ found that the UK would have still voted to leave the European Union if the referendum was rerun.
The survey showed that, at the time, 44 per cent of people would have voted to leave and 41 per cent would have voted to remain.
The remainder of respondents were either undecided or would not have voted, according to the survey of 1,679 people.
