UK employment levels reach record high. NBE Marketing Investigates

NBE Marketing investigates the factors behind the recent growth of the job market, as reports reveal the number of people working is at a record high.

Reviews of the Office for National Statistics from a recent article on thisismoney.co.uk (‘Boost on Budget Day as UK’s employment hits record high but low wage growth dents rate hike chances,’ published on 16th March 2016) have shown that the UK average weekly earnings rose by 2.1%; including bonuses between November and January.  This was up by just 0.2% compared to the three months to December, when wage growth slowed to 1.9% from 3% in the three months to September.  This equates to an average pay of £497 per week before tax and other deductions, up £1 from December and £12 from £485 per week for a year earlier.

In addition to earnings, the figures also showed that the number of people in work hit a new high of 31.4million in the three months to the end of January (116,000 more than for the period between August to October 2015 and 478,000 more than the same quarter a year earlier).  As employment levels rose, unemployment fell by 28,000 in the quarter to January to 1.68million, although the unemployment rate was unchanged at 5.1 per cent.

Reading-based marketing specialist, NBE Marketing believe they have contributed greatly to these figures by providing aspiring entrepreneurs with opportunities to learn new skills and start their own businesses within the sales and direct marketing industry.
