ONS Labour Market statistics and youth unemployment

Peter Searle, CEO of Adecco Group UK & Ireland said:

“Britain still faces unacceptable levels of youth unemployment and urgent action is required to get young people into work. Greater commitment is required from businesses to create relevant work experience opportunities, and employers need to be more engaged in education.
