Dramatic fall in architects on unemployment benefit
The number of architects claiming unemployment benefits has fallen by a quarter in a year
Analysis of Office for National Statistics data shows that 600 claimants of Jobseekers Allowance in July usually worked as architects.
This is down from 825 in the same month last year.
The news comes weeks after AJ reported that architecture firms were hopeful of growing workloads this year.
Meanwhile, the ONS revealed that 0.9 per cent more people worked in the construction sector in the second quarter of 2013 than in the same period the previous year.
