The UK Office for National Statistics just released their latest employment figures for Oct-Dec 2012. The figures show a continuation in the trend of rising employment and a further fall in the number of people claiming job seekers allowance.
Commentators are asking the question, why is employment rising when the UK looks to be heading for a triple dip recession? Part of the reason I would suggest is that the employment profile is changing in the UK. There are a growing number of people going it alone and creating their own businesses and opportunities for themselves.
This recent article http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21348712 and others suggest that this trend is growing.
