Struggling to find a Job in Cornwall - is this why ?

Saturday 11th April 2009


In parts of Cornwall, unemployment is higher than in urban blackspots.

The Commission for Rural Communities (CRC) found more people applied for any given job vacancy in parts of Cornwall than anywhere else in the country.

The report also complains of a lack of job centres in the countryside.
Since 2000, half of all rural Job Centre Plus offices have closed. In Cornwall, a third have shut in the last year alone.
