Figures also revealed that the Jobless rate has now fallen to 8.2% and that the number of 16-24 year olds looking for work has fallen by 29,000 in May, but still remains over one million however excluding those in full-time education, the figure is closer to 20.5% of the workforce. All of which signals encouraging movement for businesses and job seekers alike.
