Figures have been released to show that for every job vacancy available in the UK at the moment, there are 10 people claiming Job Seekers Allowance.

The trade union body said the ratio – which applies to unemployed people who are claiming jobseeker allowance – had more than doubled over the past year.

The TUC said that while 10 unemployed people were chasing every advertised job in January of 2009, a year earlier it was only four per vacancy.

In 25 council areas there were now more than 20 people per job, it added.

With the current economic climate in the state that it is, everyone needs as much help as they can get to further their prospects and become one step ahead of the competition.  Let NCC Home Learning help improve your career prospects and help your job application stand out from the crowd with one of our accredited courses.  Show your commitment and motivation to the application you are making!
