Nigel has welcomed the news that the number of people in Selby and Ainsty claiming jobseekers allowance has fallen again.
Official job figures show that the number of people looking for work in Selby and Ainsty as of August 2012 stands at 1,582 people; this represents a rate of 3.3% of the economically active population. The number of claimants is 66 lower than in August 2011 and 51 lower than in July 2012.
Nigel commented, ‘this is very encouraging news but as ever, we can't be complacent and that's why I am organising my second Selby District Jobs Fair to be held on Thursday 4th October at Selby College for jobseekers to attend and explore the variety of companies and job opportunities there are in the area. I want to make sure we continue to build on our recent success at getting unemployment down'
