The UK’s workforce is expected to grow by 1.4 million in 2020, a boost from the 1.3 million it saw last year, according to the latest ONS figures.
The growth has come as employers across the UK are looking for more staff to help meet the soaring demand for care and support services.
But the ONS warns that the UK’s overall health and wellbeing picture is far from perfect and it’s crucial that those looking for work get on the right path.
The ONS says a combination of the UK and global economic downturn is affecting employment, which is set to increase by 0.8% over the next 12 months.
There are now more than 1.6 million people aged over 65 in the UK, up from 1.2 million in 2011.
But there are also more people aged under 65 than ever before, with 1.1 million people under 65 in employment.
There were 4.2m fewer people aged 65 or over working in the year to December 2015, down from 4.4m in the same period a year earlier.
The figures show the UK workforce has grown by just 0.4% over five years, but there are concerns that it may be slowing to a trickle.
The UK is the only G7 country where unemployment is higher than in the US, where 6.2% of the population is unemployed.
That’s the highest rate in the world.
It means that people looking for a job are more likely to be looking elsewhere, with a further 1.5 million people saying they were looking for employment.
The unemployment rate is higher in some parts of the country than in others.
The proportion of workers aged 65 and over in the workforce has fallen by 2.2 percentage points over the past five years.
It’s still higher than the OECD average of 4.3%, but is down from the previous record of 4%.
The number of people aged 50 to 64 is also on the rise, up by 1% from 865,000 in the previous year to 877,000.
The number working part-time has also increased, by 6% to 884,000, but has also fallen by 6.6% from 1 million.
The share of the workforce aged over 25 has also risen, up to 23% from 20%, although it is still lower than the UK average of 25%.
But it is down on the UK as a whole, where it is higher at 27%.
And while the number of young people in work has risen, so too has the number aged 25-34.
The government has said that the government is “proud of the progress we’ve made in delivering high-quality, high-skilled jobs for young people and will continue to support them through the labour market”, and will invest in new apprenticeships and vocational training to ensure they get the right skills.
The Government also said it is “looking forward to seeing what the future holds” with apprenticeships, and said it will look to recruit people with skills that can fill the gap created by the ageing population.
There is also the issue of pay.
The median annual earnings of full-time workers aged 25 to 34 is £26,000 (around $33,000), but it’s the lowest of the G7 countries, according, for those aged 65 to 64.
But many workers are earning more than that.
There’s a huge gap between the median salary for a worker aged 25 or under, which sits at £32,600, and that for those working in higher-paid occupations.
And the average pay of someone with the highest level of education is £74,400, but this falls to £71,400 for those in the lowest paid sectors.
But it also shows that the gap between young people’s pay and their peers is growing, and is more than double the average gap for those with lower qualifications.
The report notes that the average annual earnings for workers aged between 25 and 34 fell by 0
