Different surveys and statistics show positive signs for the UK jobs market. Further jobs are being created over the coming six months, according to the Agents’ summary of business conditions by the Bank of England. A survey by CBI and Harvey Nash Employment found that job growth happens in the private sector and employment prospects are particularly good for professional and highly skilled staff. Also unemployment fell significantly by 88,000 to 2.43 million in the three months to April according to the latest numbers by the Office for National Statistics.
Despite all these good signs chances are high that things may get worse again. John Philpott, Chief Economic Adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) commented that the impact of public sector job cuts on overall unemployment could be significantly worse than the Government currently expects.
