Frontline Events Ltd has observed the current UK unemployment rates and chooses to ignore the negatives and encourage the ambitious to create their own work opportunities.
Reports monitored by Frontline Events say that unemployment rates are still on the rise. The struggle deems significant particularly for 16-25 year olds who seem to be experiencing the biggest challenges getting in to work. With all the doom and gloom surrounding employment Frontline Events Ltd explain they are taking advantage of the struggling economy and recommend people create their own opportunities to help the British economy emerge from this recession.
Figures released on www.hmrguide.co.uk reveal that unemployment rates, recorded for the quarter August – October 2011, stand at 8.3 per cent meaning a staggering 2.64 million people were out of work. That is an increase of 128,000 people compare to the previous quarter that stood at 7.9 per cent. That’s the highest figure since 1994 according to official figures. The Claimants Count (the number of people out of work and claiming benefits) has raised by 3,000 to 1.6 million people and the total number of employed people fell by 63,000, which was mostly due to losses in the public sector.
Frontline Events note the one thing that is becoming more apparent is the amount of people creating their own opportunity by opening their own business. By combining their knowledge, skills, and hobbies a whole range of new business are opening and the advantage of this is people are doing what they are passionate about. Gillian O’Brien, Managing Director of Frontline Events advises “Opening up your own business gives you more passion and drive to make sure your business is successful and if you can help create opportunity for others to do the same it can be even more rewarding. When I started my business eight years ago it took a lot of hard work I was willing to put in the time and effort and have certainly seen the rewards. The most important thing is to use the support systems available to business start-ups, whether its websites or services such as the Federation for Small Business.” Frontline Events MD, Gillian O’Brien continues “There is a lot of help out there to support you when starting a business. There is also talk of a government schemes being set up to help budding entrepreneurs which is very positive. The government has certainly recognised the potential available.”
Frontline Events take everything in to consideration and agree the unemployment rates in the UK are tough but it’s doesn’t all need to be all doom and gloom as the current climate opens up the opportunity for people to be more creative and work hard to achieve the success they want.
