Employment in the United Kingdom increased by 24 thousand in the three months to October 2019, following a 58 thousand loss in the three months to September, which was the biggest decrease since the three months to May 2015. The rise in employment was driven by a quarterly increase for men (up 54,000) and full-time employees (up 50,000 to a record high of 20.71 million), but partly offset by a 30,000 decrease for women and a 61,000 decrease for part-time employees.
