The number of people claiming unemployment benefits in September was 2,845. This is a fall of 467 people compared to September 2012.
I am pleased that the unemployment figures in Great Yarmouth continue to fall, in line with the figures nationally. I shall continue to work in Great Yarmouth and Westminster to promote our area to businesses of all sizes. I will also announce the details of my jobs fair which will help to match residents with available jobs and skills workshops to increase employability in the area.
