Entrepreneurs’ Forum Chief Executive Gillian Marshall said: “Today’s employment figures show real progress is being made in our region and for employment to continue to rise, support for growing businesses is essential. The North East is known throughout the world for its skilled workforce, but local employers consistently identify the skills gap as a barrier to scaling up their operations. The goal of more and better jobs, and the social good they bring, can be achieved if the business community, local authorities and the Government work together to ensure the right expertise and skills are available.”
