Unemployment in Coventry and Warwickshire has seen a marginal drop

In Coventry, the unemployment number dropped from 4,455 to 4,435 and in Warwickshire there was a fall from 3,370 to 3,355. Even though the fall in unemployment is small, it’s encouraging that employment is the area is increasing.

This shows that even with the uncertainty around Brexit, businesses are still striving to grow.
