While the South Wales native has been employed over this frustrating period, these have only been on short fixed-term contracts.

The 34-year-old said: ‘Everyone I’ve spoken to – people in business, the job centre, my friends and family, just don’t know why I don’t even get interviews.

‘The sheer fact I have moved three times to work should imply I am eager to work.

‘It’s hard to blame anyone without being able to put my finger on the issue in the first place.’

Not that he has been idle in his spare time either, he has completed three books of poetry and plans to start writing two novels.

Huw has found himself in employment limbo despite his will to work and respectable academic credentials, he even considered a job a train driver simply due it being advertised.

Speaking of his predicament: ‘My job centre told me ages ago I was caught in a catch-22, saying I was over-qualified for a factory-type job but under-experienced for the kind of job I wanted to do.’

Cabinet minister William Hague was asked about Huw’s case while on an election campaign visit to South Wales and he expressed his sympathy: ‘We are determined to create more opportunities for people like him.

‘This is why the creation of more jobs is important. It doesn’t mean everybody instantly has a job, but it means literally every day more and more people are able to find work, and there are now more job vacancies across the UK as a whole than ever before on record.

‘Those opportunities are there – and I hope he has success in the coming weeks, the report added
