New Euro jobs on the rise
The number of new jobs created across Europe rose by 30 per cent during the first three months of the year, according to a new report.

This is in spite of increases in cases of restructuring and job losses, the EU's European Restructuring Monitor report has stated.

In total, 184,500 new jobs were announced in the first quarter of the year, with the UK contributing the most out of all the EU countries, announcing 29 per cent of all new roles.

This can be mainly attributed to retailer John Lewis publishing plans to create about 35,000 new positions over the next decade and supermarket chain Asda announcing proposals to provide 8,000 new jobs by the end of this year, said the report.

Industry body Invest Northern Ireland recently released figures suggesting that almost 3,500 new jobs were created in Northern Ireland by foreign companies last year, claiming that the forthcoming shift to a devolved government will help to create more opportunities for overseas firms wanting to invest in the country.
