Labour Market Information
The world of work is continually changing and you may wonder what future employment opportunities will look like. Looking at future trends, the area around you, and the different ways in which we work can help you to plan your future career.
What is the ‘labour market’?
Labour market information can tell you:
- The number of people in certain types of jobs
- What jobs and skills employers are looking for
- Which industries are recruiting and where they are located
- Growing or declining job areas and general employment trends
When thinking about your career ideas it is useful to consider what is happening in the labour market; consider what is happening around you and always have ‘back up’ ideas.
