Skilled workers such as electricians, welders, mechanics, plumbers and bricklayers are number one on the list of jobs that have been hardest hit by talent shortage in Poland for the last few years. Polish companies also reported difficulties in finding engineers, restaurant and hotel staff and sales representatives, the report found.
