Job vacancies up: unemployment down

New figures out this week show that job vacancies have hit a record high and unemployment has fallen – and that the Plan for Jobs to get people back into employment is working.

  • Throughout the pandemic the government has invested over £400 billion to protect lives and livelihoods – and now as we continue our recovery, we are creating the jobs this country needs to build back better.
     
  • New figures out yesterday show that our plan is working – with unemployment down to 4.6 per cent, job vacancies rising to over one million for the first time since records began, and the number of employees on payroll back up to pre Covid levels.
     
  • Through our Plan for Jobs Conservatives will continue supporting people into work, ensuring they get the skills they need to get good jobs and helping businesses fill their vacancies to get our economy moving.
