Growing employment

The difficult economic circumstances of recent years have presented huge difficulties but Herefordshire is finally beginning to feel a real positive impact.

The Office for National Statistics report from January 2014 shows that the number of people in Hereford and South Herefordshire who are in receipt of Jobseeker’s Allowance fell 31% in the previous year, whilst the number of people aged 18-24 receiving Jobseeker’s Allowance fell by 40%.

Herefordshire and its people are gaining more and more opportunities to drive the economy of the county forward.
