Sunderland 'Worst Place To Get A Job'

29 January 2013, 17:18

New research shows Sunderland has more than 40 applicants for every job in the city.

Jobsearch site Adzuna said Aberdeen, Guildford and Cambridge were the best places to find work, with fewer than one jobseeker per vacancy, while Hull was the worst, with 51.

The study of 50 cities found Sunderland was second in the list with 42, followed by Wirral (38), Wolverhampton (17) and Bradford (16).

Competition for jobs in London has reached a one-year high, while the biggest decline in the number of jobseekers per vacancy over the past six months has been in Crawley, Brighton, Newcastle upon Tyne and Leeds.

Engineering and computing are the top hiring sectors across the UK, and vacancies for bar staff has dropped by a fifth since Christmas, while London is the top city for recruiting teachers and chefs.

Andrew Hunter, co-founder of Adzuna, said:
"Jobseekers, particularly young people and graduates, should be looking to arm themselves with data to help them target their job search in parts of Britain where they have the best possible chance of finding work.''
