The monthly unemployment numbers are out this week, and they are likely to show a slowdown in new UK jobs.
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), which surveys employers on their staffing needs, says that there has been a drop in those saying they will be taking on new workers to 54%.
Last year 65% agreed with this, while one-in-five said they would be getting rid of employees in the next three months.
Recent big falls in unemployment mean the rate is now 7.1%, but many of the jobs created are low-waged, part-time or on zero hours contracts. Read more about Growth in employment to slow as firms lose confidence
