Quarterly Employment Survey
Quarterly Employment Survey Latest Results - Published 17th September 2014
- Seasonal adjusted estimates from the Quarterly Employment Survey showed that there were 712,480 employee jobs in June 2014. This represented an increase +2,210 jobs (+0.3%) over the quarter and an annual increase of +12,780 jobs (+1.8%).
- Over the latest quarter there were increases across; the Services sector (+2,060 jobs), the Construction sector (+180 jobs) and the ‘Other Industries’ sector (+110 jobs). There was a decrease in the Manufacturing sector (-140 jobs). The public sector jobs increased by 0.1% (+170 jobs) while the private sector jobs experienced an increase (+0.3% or +1,740 jobs), over the same period.
- The annual increase in jobs (+12,780 jobs) was driven primarily by an increase in Service sector jobs (+10,150 jobs). There were also increases in the Manufacturing sector (+1,580 jobs), in the Construction sector (+810 jobs) and in the ‘Other industries’ sector (+230 jobs). The public sector decreased by 3,480 jobs over the year, this decrease can be largely explained by the reclassifications from the public sector to the private sector of Royal Mail plc and Lloyds Banking Group. The public sector jobs now stand at 6.1% lower (-13,720 jobs) than the series peak at September 2009. The private sector was up 16,280 jobs over year, but remains 2.7% (14,040 jobs) lower than the series peak in June 2008.
