According to research carried out by Totaljobs.com, 23 people are applying for a job in the UK on average.
This figure rises to 33 applicants for job opportunities in the south east of the country, though only ten people are fighting for a work vacancy in East Anglia.
Looking into the current state of the UK jobs market, John Salt, director of Totaljobs.com, said: "Since March, the whole market has frozen, with companies reluctant to risk a rise in head-count when consumer confidence is taking a battering – and uncertainty around the future of the euro threatens to pull the whole economy back into recession."
The research follows on from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation detailing in its latest Jobs Outlook that 81 per cent of employers are looking to either grow or maintain their current agency workforces.
