Since being elected in 2010 I have held huge Jobs Fairs in Northampton regularly - with thousands of people attending each time! Since then unemployment in Northampton North has fallen by more than 50%. This is great news, but there is still work to do.
Youth Unemployment is also down by an impressive 63% since 2010 and I am pleased that the number of Apprenticeships on offer has more than tripled.
I believe in giving people a hand up and not a hand out, it is my aim to ensure every person can get a good job, apprenticeship or further education to learn new skills, so that everyone has the opportunity to earn a good wage and provide for themselves and their families.
