Female entrepreneurs create new jobs across North West

Entrepreneurship - especially female - continues to create new jobs across the North West, according to new figures.

The region saw its jobs count rise by 2.5 per cent in the last 12 months compared to 1.9 per cent nationally. And the region saw a 4.5 per cent increase in self-employment over the same period.

Women entrepreneurs are said to be leading the growth in self-employment, accounting for 54% of the increase since 2008.

Across the UK, self employment has risen by 21.1 per cent since 2008, with self-employment now accounting for 14.7 per cent of all jobs.

UK economic transformation - especially for women

This increase has transformed the UK economy, particularly for women. The number of self-employed women has increased by more than 40% over the past eight years, accounting for jut over half of the rise in self-employment.

Since 2008, there are 1.8 million more people in work across the UK with 800,000 of these in self-employment.

In Manchester the proportion of jobs that are done by the self employed rose to 13 per cent while in Leeds this figure is 11.8 per cent.
