London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/27/2015 -- London-based recruitment to recruitment company GSR2R has responded to the new that Britain has moved up the European unemployment table, surpassing Luxembourg and Denmark.
According to new statistics released by Eurostat, Britain now has the third-lowest unemployment rate in Europe, overtaking the Netherlands, Malta, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic and Denmark.
The substantial climb in rankings to 3rd place from 8th place follows substantial economic recovery, with unemployment plummeting from 7.2% to 5.6% from November 2013-2014.
As it stands now, there are only two countries with better employment figures than Britain – Germany and Austria, with 4.7% and 4.8% unemployment respectively – which some didn't see coming, as the dip in unemployment is the sharpest recorded in developed countries.
However, many in the UK say they're not surprises by the figures. One such company, GSR2R, say that the signs have been there for a while.
A spokeswoman for GSR2R said: "The UK economy is up at the moment and as a provider of recruitment to recruitment services, we know as better than anyone. We've seen first-hand how industries, almost all industries, have bounced back in the last few years. There's a large number of employers in the country at the moment who are looking to expand and take on more workers and that's a trend we expect to see continue throughout 2015."
Employment minister, Esther McVey, said: "Employers across the UK are feeling more confident, investing in people of all ages and these figures today show that the UK is at the top of the jobs growth league of all the major economies."
GSR2R are a rec-to-rec company in London who also deal in the placement of graduates into recruitment roles. They have over 13 years' industry experience, working in a variety of sectors, from construction and engineering, to banking and finance.
