The number of workers on company payrolls in the UK climbed by almost 200,000 in the three months to February, amid signs that the jobs market may be stabilising.
However, the number on payrolls is still 693,000 lower than last February, before Covid lockdown measures began.
It comes amid growing optimism that the vaccine rollout will lead to a faster-than-expected economic recovery.
