Unemployment in Britain has hit a 42-year low, from May to July the unemployment rate fell to 4.3 percent, a low not seen since the 1970s. With an estimated 1.49 million unemployed people, versus 32 million people in work.

On the 22 September Theresa May delivered a speech in Florence in which she called for a two-year transition period, during which time trade would continue on current terms following Brexit. During this period EU migrants would be able to live and work in the UK but have to register with the authorities, while the UK would continue to pay into the EU budget.

Post-Brexit statistics suggested that a number of EU citizens were already returning to their home nations despite far higher unemployment rates compared to that of the UK and the trend continues. There are continued lower volumes of non-British EU Nationals applying for roles and numerous challenges still remain for the short-term market – challenges that must be met.
