FIGURES released show the level of unemployment in Wales has fallen by 52,000 since 2010.

In Denbighshire, according to the Department for Work and Pensions, the jobless figure for January was 1035 claimants.

The claimant count - the number of people who are claiming unemployment benefit in the county - was down by 13 per cent over the period of a year and there has been an overall drop of 53 per cent since 2010.

A spokesman for the department highlighted a number of current initiatives and opportunities in Denbighshire, including:

The Range, which is opening in Rhyl at the Marina Quay site. This is set to create 60 jobs which are being advertised.

Pontins and Presthaven Sands are both currently recruiting in advance of the summer season.

Ty Mawr, Towyn, will host an open day, once again, to recruit for the summer season.

Premier Inn in Rhyl will be opening on the former Honey Club site on February 26.

The spokesman said: "Whilst they (Premier Inn) had taken on a total of 60 staff, 19 of these were persons working closely with Jobcentreplus. Premier Inn interviewed 300 plus people for the positions. The aim of this was to engage with a wider diverse base and were able to see persons of different skills and ability levels."
