FTSE LIVE: Attention turns to crucial jobs data as investors seek rate rise clues; Vodafone chief executive bows out after ten years at the top

Investor attention is focused on an update on UK employment due out today. With the Bank of England pulling back from a rate rise this month the race is on to identify when the rise will come. A strong set of jobs data could mean a rise is still imminent, while weak numbers could see it pushed back until after the summer.

Elsewhere, Vodafone chief executive Vittorio Colao has announced he will step down on October 1 after more than 10 years in the role.
