Public sector job cuts: is the tide finally turning?

The NHS and civil service are recruiting, but there are still 1.1m fewer public sector workers than in 2009 and councils have been hard hit

“It’s not your normal job; we’re mending lives,” says actor Maxine Peake, in her voiceover to the video spearheading the NHS’s new £8m recruitment campaign, its biggest ever. The health service is growing: in the 12 months to the end of March, the number of NHS staff in England rose by almost 20,000 to 1.2 million.
