DWP is working with Monster Worldwide Limited, the Universal Jobmatch supplier, on a timetable for prioritising and implementing improvements to the available Universal Jobmatch Ml, including breakdowns by parliamentary constituency, subject to funding, and so it has no current plans to publish statistics on vacancies by constituency.

Any snapshot of unfilled vacancies at a point in time will miss the regular turnover of new vacancies that are notified as existing opportunities are filled. It will also miss jobs coming up through other recruitment channels or filled by direct approaches to employers or word of mouth.
