New statistics show Britain’s job boom continues

Figures published today by the Office for National Statistics show how the unemployment rate remains at its lowest since 1974, with over 33 million people now in work.

This figure includes an increase of 2.3 million UK nationals in work since 2010, taking that figure to just over 29 million, and increasing the employment rate to 76.5%.

Another 1.4 million more disabled people are now in work than in 2013, helped by more than 16,000 employers signing up to the Disability Confident Scheme.

Employment has risen in every region of the UK since 2010 and looks set to continue with the introduction of the government’s transport funding, allowing jobseekers and commuters a better connection to places of opportunity.

Minister for Employment, Mims Davies MP said:

“As we embark on a new chapter as an independent nation outside the EU, we do so with a record-breaking jobs market and business confidence on the rise.”

“With wages still outpacing inflation, UK workers can expect their money to go further as we look ahead to a decade of renewal. The upcoming Budget will steer us on that course, further driving our levelling up agenda – so we can all share in the country’s prosperity.”
