Latest figures: fewer architects unemployed

  • Comment

The number of architects claiming unemployment has fallen for the fifth month in a row

Last month the AJ reported that the total had fallen below the 1,000 mark for the first time in more than three years, down to 955 (figures revealed for April). Now, according to the latest Nomis figures, there are 950 people signing on and stating their usual occupation to be architect.

Intriguingly the number of male architects claiming the dole actually went up by five in May, from 725 to 730. However the number of women out of work fell from 230 to 215, continuing a progressively downward trend which started in September 2010. The true scale of the problem is understood to be hidden by the fact many out-of-work architects fail to claim unemployment benefits.
