Businesses are scrambling to hire more staff as the economy improves.
The government is planning to raise the minimum wage and cut tax rates, which could result in thousands of new jobs being created.
BBC Business reporter Martin Patience has been in the business for 14 years.
What can you expect?
The most likely way you will get a job is if you are a UK citizen and live in the European Economic Area (EEA).
That means you will be able to work in the EU and be eligible for tax relief, as well as being able to pay VAT.
If you live in Scotland you can also get a permanent residency visa.
You can get a UK passport in case you have to travel to a different EU country.
The other major way to get into the EU is if your business is owned by an EU company.
That means if you sell goods or services to people who are citizens of another EU country, you can be registered in the country they are located in.
You will be eligible to apply for a temporary work permit, which will enable you to work up to three months a year and is worth up to £15,000 a year.
If your business sells goods or employs workers from abroad, it can apply for temporary residence permits, which can be worth up-to £5,000.
What to expect as an EU citizen?
If you’re a UK resident, you are able to apply to stay in the EEA after you’ve been here for at least four years, if you’re not, you must wait for six months.
If the UK is not a member of the EU you will not be able get a residence permit.
You’ll also be allowed to apply if you have a family member who is a citizen of another EEA country.
You’re also able to get temporary residence if you live and work in Scotland and Ireland, if your company is in one of those countries.
You are also eligible to claim a tax relief if your employer is a UK company.
What about the EU’s immigration rules?
EU nationals can apply to be granted a temporary residence permit if they have been living in the state for six years.
If they apply to leave, they will need to prove they can be paid the minimum amount of money per month that they’re paying to live in that country.
If their employer is not the UK company, they can claim tax relief for up to 12 months.
It will be a five-year period before they will be taxed.
EU nationals must also prove they have a job offer and the company they work for has not stopped doing so.
If an EU employee has been unemployed for more than five years, they cannot apply for tax benefits if they are employed by another company.
This means they will have to leave the UK and reapply for a work permit.
They will also have to prove their own ability to support themselves.
How much does it cost?
You can apply as a UK worker if you make between £23,000 and £60,000 per year, depending on how long you have been working in the public sector.
You won’t pay tax if you earn more than £100,000 if you take a lower rate.
If a company you work for pays a lower tax rate, it will not count towards your minimum wage.
You may be eligible if you don’t meet minimum wage requirements if you do the minimum part-time amount.
The amount of tax relief depends on your employment status and your company.
If it is a company that is a non-EU company, it has the lowest rate.
You need to be in the same job for three months if you get a temporary permit to work, or if you work in a different job.
If not, the company has to pay at least the minimum rate.
What’s the cost of moving abroad?
EU workers are exempt from the tax rates in the United States and Canada.
In addition, they’re allowed to live and use the UK’s financial services industry.
You also get to apply the same rules to any EU-based company that you’re working for.
How to work and study abroad?
UK nationals can study in the US or the EU for four years at a time, with the option to study abroad for longer.
You could study in Switzerland, Germany, Canada, New Zealand or other countries with a higher standard of living.
If studying abroad, you’ll need to apply online for a permit, but this is usually done through a third party.
A fee will be charged if you choose to study outside the UK.
If travelling abroad, there’s a cost of living allowance.
If there’s not enough money to live on in the first year, the allowance will be paid into your bank account for up-front payments.
The fee varies by country, but the minimum is £400 per year.
