Why we've printed 1,000 jobs in today's Hull Daily Mail
In today's Hull Daily Mail we print more than 1,000 jobs available in the city and the surrounding area.
The paper includes a free 12-page supplement including the jobs listings and lots of advice.
None of these adverts have been paid for but a number of people – including the city council – have supported the move because it is, simply, a decent idea.
We know these vacancies will not scratch the surface of the number required to put our city back on a working platform. That number is anything between 7,000 and 35,000 depending on who you talk to.

But it is a start and shows there is some work out there for those who want it.
Some may be disheartened by the lack of opportunity; a few may not be aware such jobs are available; and others may be put off by a system that can be complex.
Putting these jobs into black and white might just spark an interest.
It is all too easy to brand all of those unemployed as wasters – and it is simply not true. The majority do want to work and are given a bad name by the feckless.
It is also wrong to point the finger at those living on council estates. Working class people are just that – people who want to work. Those who prefer benefits to a pay packet are a minority who shame that belief.
Many people want a job and it is of major importance to the future of our city that everything is done to ensure they stand the best chance of getting one.
