Wow, that’s good news!

With 1.1+ million vacancies and all the new ones you are bringing to the table every Brit will be able to work three jobs to compensate for the penury of Brexit.

Were there 1.1 million vacancies back then?
And why couldn't find a job, underqualified perhaps?

Decided you would eventually complain that I didn't answer....so here it is.

Can't give you number of vacancies because I cannot find a source.

However, these were the years in which I job searched and it took 3 month each time to find a job.....
In 1980 there were 7.2% of the population unemployed.

In 2000 there were 5.56% of the population unemployed.

In 2003 there were 5.04% of the population unemployed.

Underqualified you asked?
Lets see.......
3 year apprenticeship training as a computer engineer.
Part of that also included learning to use lathes, milling machines, welding (gas and electric), wiring electrics, metal cutting.
It also included repairing circuit boards down to chip level.

City & Guilds in Electronics after 3 years at college.

By 1990 I was running the field service compter repair team for half of the british operation (16 people).

So I don't think underqualified was it.

Before you ask, the jobs I applied for were varied.

Nissan to install new 20MW solar farm based in Sunderland​



Extract:
Nissan has been given the green light to install an additional 20MW solar farm at its UK plant, the next milestone for its EV36Zero project and the company’s journey to carbon neutrality.

The new 20MW installation, for which planning permission has now been granted, will double the amount of renewable electricity generated at Nissan’s Sunderland plant to 20% of the plant’s needs – enough to build every 100% electric Nissan LEAF sold in Europe.

Work will begin on the development immediately, and installation alongside the plant’s existing wind and solar farms is expected to be complete by May 2022.

Seems we’re going off track here & I wouldn’t have complained as you rarely answer questions. But my principal question was how you think 1.1+++ million vacancies can be filled remains answered – your suggestion that millions of people unwilling or unable to work should be compelled to do so doesn’t sound overly convincing.

But to follow you down the rabbit hole why, if so qualified, why was it so difficult to find a job? You come across as a jack of all trades whereas specialisation was required. Or perhaps personality? I would never employ anyone in my company unless I felt some chemistry.

Meanwhile...


Now that is good news!

Show me where I said that should be 'compelled' to work ?

You'd have to ask the employers why I wasn't chosen, they rarely give reasons for not employing someone.

What I have is a number of skills that i brought to the interviews, but primarily was the specific training apprenticeship in the specialisation of computer engineering.

You employ using the criteria 'unless I felt some chemistry'.......sounds like you discriminate against people that can do a job based on liking them or not.

I employed based on skills and background.



And regarding the google search link about building ships in Ukraine.....the top one is from Kyiv Post...


As part of the Ukrainian-U.K. sea defense deal, the Royal Navy is preparing to provide Ukraine with two minesweeping ships: HMS Ramsey and HMS Blyth. The decommissioned vessels with nearly 20 years of service record will be repaired and modernized before being transferred to Ukraine.

And...

British company Babcock won a contract and is expected to manufacture the vessels in the city of Rosyth in Scotland.

So a more specific link might help your case.

BOOM! British factory output grew for an 18th consecutive month in November. The UK manufacturing PMI reading for the period was 58.1 - well above the 50 mark that denotes growth. #UKmfg🇬🇧

You said that the currently unemployed could take up the slack but as many of them don't want to work how will that happen unless coerced in some way.
You'd have to ask the employers why I wasn't chosen, they rarely give reasons for not employing someone.
No need to ask - personality, what else?
You employ using the criteria 'unless I felt some chemistry'.......sounds like you discriminate against people that can do a job based on liking them or not.

I employed based on skills and background.
In an interview situation I always tried to first ascertain as to whether I would be comfortable in working with the applicant and if they would fit in with the rest of the team.
Only then would I assess their qualifications.

You point is unclear, I gave you a number of links - had you read..

Ukraine secures £1.25 billion from UK to build military vessels

You would have seen...

"the first two ships would be constructed in the UK with the remaining 6 vessels to be completed in Ukraine".

I never used the word 'compelled'.
Point me to where I did as previously asked.

My point is you provided a link to numerous results from a Google search.
If you were wanting me to read that specific one then you could have provided it.
Be specific and not vague.

That article is from October 2020, so did it actually happen?
It appears to be the same as the article link I posted (specific article) where it states in November 2021 they agreed a 'draft' agreement.
And it relates to Babcock, the defence, security and aerospace company I have previously highlighted.
So appears to be money flowing in to the UK from Ukraine....a positive UK gain.

Seems so - the shipyards in Nikolayev are hiring like crazy.
So appears to be money flowing in to the UK from Ukraine....a positive UK gain.
The project is funded by a £1.25 billion so $$ flowing both ways - positive gains for both parties.
(Plenty of people here looking for work).

You have yet to answer where I used the word 'compelled'.
So asked, but not answered.

Babcock also hiring....around 500 for UK.

Another 500 vacancies added to the long list of job openings.

Rather than argue pointless topics please regale us with more job opportunities, can't wait.

Yet again no answer.

Best stick to your Ukraine/Russia threads which have much simpler questions.

Nite nite.
