It could be about to get easier to find a job in Cornwall.

South west employers are planning to start hiring again, according to a new survey.

Recruitment experts Manpower says the outlook for the next three months is more positive, after jumping eight percentage points to +3 percent.

Nearly eleven thousand people are unemployed in the Duchy.

Jan Taylor from Carleen near Helston says it took her months to find work after being laid off:

"It's a bit disheartening really; you get a bit down after a while, thinking 'you know, why don't they reply?' You just like to know where you are, and get a bit of feedback as to what you may be doing wrong with your CV or with the way you're filling out application forms."

Jan adds there are opportunities out there for jobseekers:

"Keep an eye out in shop windows, as much as anything as well. Also, take your CV and go knocking on doors and asking. You know, I did do that, I went round to most of the shops in Helston, asking if anybody needed a job, and handed my CV to plenty of people."
