Unemployment Falls: Comment from totaljobs

By totaljobs’ HR Director, David Clift

Company Profile


“Today’s unemployment figures demonstrate ongoing stability in the British workforce, which is an impressive feat as a turbulent and uncertain 2017 draws to a close.

“This can be seen in the number of jobs being advertised, with a 10% increase in the number of jobs being advertised in the finance and tech sectors respectively.

“In fact, unemployment figures have not been lower since Queen had their Christmas no.1 hit with ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ in 1975. 

“As the world gears up for upcoming Christmas and New Year celebrations, it’s important to reflect on the consistency within the UK job market over the past year. It’s reassuring to enter a new calendar year, safe in the knowledge that we can withstand future uncertainty resulting from pending political and economic changes.”
