Excellent local employment figures

In the Chippenham Constituency, the number of people claiming out of work benefits has fallen by 758 which is a drop of 58%, since 2010.

Over the past 12 months alone, unemployment is down in the constituency by 6% but importantly over the same period it is down by almost 10% for the 18-24 year olds.

Of course, there is still more to do to ensure everyone who is able to work finds the right job for them but this data is great news for all those who have found a job and for the businesses employing those local people.
