ERSA welcomes the latest set of labour market statistics for March to May 2017, which show unemployment down by over 152,000 on the year and with the rate falling to 4.5% – the lowest since 1975. 
Commenting on the figures, ERSA’s Head of Policy and Communications, Sam Windett, said:
“Today’s labour market statistics are in no small part a testament to the scale and efforts of the organisations who are providing employment support at the front line every day. Advisers are working hard to help change lives, communities and grow businesses. This Friday’s Employability Day provides a perfect opporutnity to see this first hand and celebrate the great work that takes place in the employment support sector across the UK.”
