The outlook for jobs in Britain is worst than in any other country in Europe and beyond, fresh data has revealed as the pandemic continues to hit people's pockets and prospects.

Jobs in hospitality and retail continue to be hammered by the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic as sporadic lockdown restrictions look set to roll on into early next year. 

London in particular is suffering amid the pandemic, with the outlook for jobs in the capital by mid-2021 the worst on record, according to the research. 

Prospects in the jobs market are also becoming increasingly divided across different industries, with 'sharp improvements' in the construction, finance, and business sectors in terms of openings.
