Employment

 

People of working age can be divided into three groups: the employed, the self-employed, and the unemployed.

About two thirds of the work-force are employed in service industries; compared with one quarter in manufacturing industry. A number of government schemes, programs were introduced to help unemployed people find work.

Many unemployed people look for work in advertisements, such as those in local newspapers. Others make their first search through the government Jobcentres, where local jobs are advertised and where individual advice is given. Training can also be obtained through the Open College that provides courses by radio and television. Two further schemes are Business Growth Training which offers financial help to employers training their own employees, and the Enterprise Allowance Scheme, which helps unemployed people start their own business.

If a parson is unemployed for six months or longer, he or she may attend an interview with a “Restart” counselor, who will suggest alternative way of finding work. Similar Schemes operate in the USA.
