I posted this comment in the ATC visa thread but this one seems more appropriate.
If the same recruitment standard for ATC staff had been applied to "Human Resources" staff (aka 'Personnel'), I'm sure the UK ANSP's wouldn't be in the state they are today. From my observations in the UK in nearly 50 years, they seem incapable of providing for the troughs & crests of ATCO retirements. Lessons are not learned. The only mitigation I can see is that they have probably been influenced by the 'bean counters' ! I wonder if anyone is ever called to account for the mismanagement. HR seems to be fireproof. (Rant over) ....
