UK Unemployment Rate Falls

Posted by Will Dolby on 17/06/15 11:13

The Office of National Statistics released their unemployment figures this morning. And it was good news.

We like good news here at Hiring Hub.

Not only did unemployment fall, wage growth hit a four year high. The number of unemployed workers fell by 43,000 between February and April, to 1.81 million. That means there are now 31.05 million people in work.

But that's not all - wage growth increased by 2.7%, which is the fastest rate since August 2011. The milky bars are on us.

Check out the infographic the Office of National Statistics kindly produced for our visual pleasure...
