UK Unemployment (Feb 2011)

Unemployment/Job Cuts
Published: 28 Feb 2011

UK unemployment figures increased in the last three months by 44,000 according to the ONS, taking the total unemployed to just under 2.5 million, which mean more people are job hunting and competing in the job market. According to the CIPD, in the next few months redundancies are due to rise significantly as many public sector bodies restructure and private sector companies also make job cuts.

At Personal Career Management we work with individuals who have been made redundant and have to face a tough job market, many senior managers and directors who didn’t think they would be in this position are having to revisit their CV and compete for jobs.

Corinne Mills, Career Coach and Managing Director of Personal Career Management has featured on ITV Daybreak, The Politics Show and BBC News discussing the current economic climate, public sector job cuts and career transitioning giving her views on the job market and career tips for those affected. These clips can be found on our press room page.
