The north-west of England may be affected by further government spending cuts, which could be of interest to those trying to set up a recruitment agency.
According to the Trades Union Congress (TUC), the government's plans to reduce spending by cutting the number of public sector workers in the region will hit the north-west particularly hard as it has more of those types of employees than most other UK regions.
The research from the TUC suggests that the cuts could cost the north-west 95,000 jobs and that it could take a quarter of a century for the area to recover.
Bredan Barber, TUC secretary, said: "There is real concern that the government's programme of deep spending cuts while our economy is still fragile will spark spiralling unemployment in both the public and private sectors."
Meanwhile, the FT.com recently noted that caps on the number of immigrant workers allowed to work in UK companies may mean some businesses suffer because they cannot obtain staff with the right skills.
