Figures from the Office for National Statistics published today (January 18th) has shown that the number of people out-of-work in Redditch is continuing to fall.

Rachel Maclean, MP for Redditch, said:

“Good news! Claimant count data published today shows the unemployment rate in Redditch continues to fall.

“This is another sign that our Plan For Jobs is working. Since the plan was launched, more than 1,000 people in Redditch have got back into work. These aren’t just numbers. These are real people who are back in work & providing for themselves and their family.

“This follows recent figures showing the UK economy is now larger than it was before the pandemic struck.”
