The UK’s job market is still recovering from the Brexit vote and has a lot to offer.
This is the latest piece in our series of posts on what’s happening in the UK job market.
The economy was the biggest cause of the shortage of jobseekers and was expected to lead to more people losing their jobs in the next year.
That hasn’t happened and the economy is now showing signs of stabilising.
The UK has a relatively high level of unemployment, with the national unemployment rate at 5.9 per cent.
It has a slightly higher rate of overall unemployment than the US, but it is still relatively low compared to other advanced economies.
A higher unemployment rate is associated with lower earnings and lower levels of education, which means that people can’t earn as much as they would like to if they had the opportunity.
However, in the past two years, there has been a rise in the proportion of people in the labour force, with some employers reporting increases in hiring in the previous three months.
These figures are based on the Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) benefit, which was increased from £21,500 to £23,500 in April and May 2017.
So, while unemployment is high, the job market looks pretty strong.
There’s still a long way to go for the economy to catch up to the UK’s growth rate of 1.9 percentage points a year, which is still quite low compared with other major economies.
The UK is the fifth-largest economy in the world, with about 3.5 million jobs, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
It is followed by China (4.1 million jobs), the US (3.5 mln), Germany (3 million) and France (3 mln).
The number of people working has increased by a third since the financial crisis.
There are now about 7.7 million unemployed people in Britain, which works out at around one in 10 people.
Many of those people have been in the jobless ranks for a while and it’s difficult to gauge their future prospects.
Despite the relatively low unemployment rate, there are a number of things that need to be done to get the economy moving again.
One of the biggest is the introduction of the National Living Wage, which will be paid to everyone earning under £20,000.
If you are looking to get your foot in the door, this will be a good way to start.
It’s estimated that by 2020, up to 7 million people will be earning a living wage.
You will be able to find out more about the National Minimum Wage and the National Childcare Payment, which are currently only available to people in receipt of Universal Credit.
