Are there any Wirral folk here are so fed up with fruitless jobhunting in this Godforsaken area and are now seriously contemplating looking in a different part of the country for work? This has to be the WORST place in the UK for jobs. None of these blasted employers ever reply. There is scant opportunity to better yourself (huh, that's a laugh - "better yourself" in a jobs desert like the Wirral!).

I WANT TO GET OUT OF WIRRAL NOW! I just feel as if I am rotting away here, with no job and no prospects. It is just HORRIBLE.

That's exactly what I did in 1976, come back now I've retired. Make a decision and go for it but do some research on where you're going first, it's no use going to a location which is as bad as this one job-wise.

If you don't have a family to disrupt, I wouldn't even think twice about it. If you have, then they have to be consdered. It's good to get out of it.What have you got to loose? Everything to gain I should think and you can always come back again,if you should ever want to.
Do it!

Your posts over the weeks and months are becoming more and more desperate. I think you are right, you are so unhappy that you will have to look elsewhere. Do you have skills in a particular business? You could search nationally for somewhere where that particular business is doing well?

Good luck with your endeavours.

I have to agree with some of the others. If you have no ties go for it. Something that will give you bed and board so you can save to move on perhaps. If you are free then the world is your oyster.

Loc: lincoln. Wirral for 43 years
I left in 2008, in the 80s I had to move to London for work, I returned to Wirral four years later after securing myself a job. When that fell apart twenty two years later I moved again, I live in a calm, friendly village in Lincolnshire now. I return home when I can to see family. The slower pace here has literally saved my life. I have fond memories of Wirral, miss family there.......but. If you can get out, run, run for your life. Good luck.

I truly adore the Wirral doolze, but I will admit to a slight pang of envy for where/how you're living now smile

Always lived in Merseyside, went to sch, uni etc here and got a really good teaching job here too. Don't see what the fuss is about really.

I'm genuinely pleased for you DJ smile But you don't understand 'What all the fuss is about' because you HAVE a job. When you're unemployed and over qualified (office jobs) and under qualified (fork lift truck drivers) then you're entitled to to be a tad p*s**d off.

The population of The Wirral has been fallen since the early 1970's as more and more people, especially the younger generation, leave to find work elsewhere.

Just a simple fact.
