Unemployment rises in November

Fri, 09 Dec 2016

The number of people out of work on the Isle of Man has increased over the last month.

573 people were registered unemployed at the end of November, 21 more than the previous month.

However, it's 213 lower than at the same time in 2015 and the lowest figures for the month of November since 2007.

The figures give the Island's economically active population an unemployment rate of 1.3%.

There were also fewer vacancies posted at the Isle of Man Job Centre during November, although 406 of the 690 jobs posted remained vacant at the end of the month.
