Lagging Labor Market Sees Slow Recovery in U.K. Cities

Job postings across the U.K. are languishing below their pre-pandemic levels, according to data from recruitment website Indeed.com. Employment in some of the country’s biggest cities, such as London and Edinburgh, is struggling to recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, with more than 50% fewer opportunities in the capital than a year ago. The slow rebound is due to a decline in jobs on the high street and local services like food, retail and hospitality.
