The number of people in work in the UK went up by 177,000 on quarter to 32,707 in the three months to March of 2022, well above market expectations of a 105,000 rise. Following an upward trajectory in the employment rate that started in early 2012, it has fallen sharply throughout most of 2020 due to the pandemic. However, there has been a rebound since the end of 2020 and now stands roughly 1 percentage point below pre-pandemic highs. The number of full-time workers rose to a fresh record high in the three-month period and the number of self-employed workers also rose during the period, while the decline in part-time employment partly offset overall gains. source: Office for National Statistics
