(PRWEB UK) 2 November 2012
Official figures have been released showing the UK’s employment rate is at its highest since spring this year, with a record number of people in work. The number of people unemployed from August to September this year dropped significantly by 50,000 leaving the UK with a jobless rate of 7.9%. Employment grew to 29.59 million during these three months, the highest rate of employment growth since records began.
The Office for National Statistics report also shows that part time work grew by 125,000 to around 8.13 million people. However, those who took on part time work because they couldn’t find full time work was also at a record high, with over 1.4 million people stating this as the reason for taking part time work. The report did however discover that youth employment had fallen and self-employment had increased, both important aspects in order to get the UK out of its double dip recession.
Dosh Express is pleased at the recent figures released and hopes that it may be a sign that the country is on the road to recovery. A spokesperson said, ‘Levels of unemployment had been tumbling over recent months and were becoming more and more alarming. With such a successful summer and an Olympic influenced boom, employment and economy was expected to grow and today’s figures confirm that. We hope that as a result many people throughout the UK will be more financially stable.’
