The number of people in work in the UK rose by 25 thousand on quarter to 32.18 million in the three months to May of 2021, missing market forecasts of a 90 thousand increase. The quarterly increase in employment was mainly driven by an increase in the number of full-time workers, which reached its highest level since before the pandemic. This was partly offset by a decrease in the number of people working part-time, which reached its lowest level since 2009. The employment rate was estimated at 74.8%, 1.8 percentage points lower than before the pandemic, but 0.1 percentage points higher than the previous quarter. source: Office for National Statistics
