UK job vacancies have decreased for the eighth consecutive time due to economic pressures hindering new staff recruitment. The number of jobs decreased by 51,000 between December and February compared to the previous three months, but job vacancies remain high at 1.1 million. The UK Chancellor is expected to reveal plans to encourage people to work in the upcoming Budget. It is anticipated that the government will increase the amount of savings people can make towards their pensions without it being taxed, although this does not address labour issues at the lower end of the scale. The rate of economic inactivity decreased to 21.3% between November and January, driven by younger people aged between 16 to 24 either getting jobs or looking for work.
