According to the respective report, around 2.51 million people were out of work in the three months to April, the 7.8% jobless rate remaining unchanged compared to the previous three months period.

Furthermore, average earnings also recorded a slight increase (1.3%, compared to the previous year, 0.7% compared to the previous month), and the number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance

has also fallen by 8,600 in May, down to 1.51 million.

The fall in unemployment across the UK is a very good piece of news, but it’s also likely to affect companies’ HR departments, which will be forced to streamline their operation in order to cope with the higher staff numbers.
