Commenting on the unemployment figures published today, the Deputy Chief Executive of the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce said:
“Although there was a rise in the number of claimants in Derby and also a slight increase in Nottingham, there was a significant drop in the number of claimants across both counties, which is positive news and would tally with the findings of the Chamber’s latest Quarterly Economic Survey, which found an increase in the number of firms recruiting in the first three months of the year.
