Ayrshire Post - - News -

A to­tal of 2415 peo­ple are on the dole queue in South Ayr­shire. The fig­ure in­cludes 515 in the 18- 24 age group.

The fig­ure is up by 57 per cent on last year, but num­bers are skewed due to the roll out of Uni­ver­sal Credit.

The Depart­ment for Work and Pen­sions in Ayr are stag­ing a Jobs Fair at the town’s Job­cen­tre in John Street on Jan­uary 25, 9.30am- noon. Hun­dreds of jobs are be­ing cre­ated at Hun­ter­ston in a re­new­ables de­com­mis­sion­ing hub.
