The figure is worked out based on the Office of National Statistics latest unemployment numbers, minus the figure that was recorded before the 2008 recession. Employment figures are very haphazard country wide, rising 3.3% in London – or 122,000 jobs – and down 2.8% in the West Midland; 70,000 jobs.
London, the East Midlands and Eastern England are at higher employment levels than before the recession, whilst areas such as the North East and South West are still struggling to reduce unemployment to the pre-recession standard. According to the TUC, were it not for London’s employment increase the jobs gap would be double that which it is now. The TUC has said that the employment levels remain below that which they were before the recession.
