Jodie Woodrow, Manager of Pure’s Ipswich office, was invited on to Mustard TV’s Business Extra Show to discuss the latest economic findings released by The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).
The BCC has released the results of its latest quarterly survey which provides a snap shot of the UK economy. Based on responses from over 8,500 firms, the latest findings show that growth in the economy has continued to soften in the first quarter of 2016.
Mustard TV, a local TV station based in Norwich, invited Jodie to be a panellist on its Business Extra Show to discuss whether the UK-wide findings are reflective of Norfolk’s economy and the problems local organisations may be encountering as a result. She was joined by Jon Shooter from Glazing Vision in Diss and Jonathan Cage, President of Norfolk Chamber of Commerce.
During the discussions Jodie revealed that the number of job vacancies in the region had increased in the last quarter, but outlined how challenges in finding people with the right skills to fill these roles could be a contributing factor to the slowdown in economic growth.
