The number of job vacancies in Dundee is now the third lowest in 6 years
15 February 2012
Overall in Dundee, the total number of unemployed, males and females, stands at 5,549.
This represents an unemployment rate of 5.9 percent, above the Scottish average ( 4.13 and the UK average ( 4.0)One very worrying figure from these unemployment figures is the number of vacancies for jobs in Dundee.
It is just 317 which is the second lowest level of vacancies in the past six years.
Over 17 unemployed people in the city are now chasing every vacant job.
I am in favour of the council setting up a jobs task force/income generator post and hope, in light of these figures that an incoming Administration give this consideration.
This does nothing for the Scottish economy. and there is no job creation from it in Dundee."
