Figures just released by the Office of National Statistics show that unemployment increased by 210 000 in the three months to July 2009, with some 947 000 people in the 16-24 years age group being jobless.
The Future Jobs Fund aims to create 150 000 new posts, although according to The Age and Employment Network, it is older workers who need to be targetted so that their skills and experience aren’t lost to the employment market.
