The bad news in the good news

AS a leading independent recruitment agency, we continue to closely monitor the effects of an unusually low unemployment rate, particularly here in Northamptonshire where the level is even lower than the national average.

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) estimates that the UK unemployment rate is 3.8 per cent, the lowest since October to December 1974, with this dropping dramatically for Northamptonshire where it is estimated to be less that two per cent - yes two per cent!
