Latest jobs figures

The latest new jobs figures show there are over 1.1 million more people in payrolled employment since the start of the pandemic and wage growth continues to be strong, showing the progress of Conservative governments in giving more people the long-term security of their own income as we work to halve inflation, grow the economy and reduce debt. 

  • To deliver the long-term recovery that our economy needs, we must ensure that people across the country have access to the jobs that are right for them as we grow the economy.
  • New figures released today (17th October 2023) show there are over 1.1 million more people in payrolled employment since the start of the pandemic and annual growth in pay (excluding bonuses) was above inflation at 7.8 per cent in June to August 2023. 
  • The Conservative government is taking the long-term decisions needed to secure a brighter economic future - giving people the security of their own income as we work to halve inflation, grow the economy and reduce debt.
