Labour Market Information

LMI is data about jobs and industries that helps us understand the economy.  It is a useful tool to help research future jobs in the local area, understand the skills needed for certain roles and the demand for future employment.

LMI helps people explore and investigate key aspects of a particular area of employment including:

  • The sectors, industries and businesses that operate
  • The jobs that exist
  • The number and type of vacancies available
  • The sectors and the industries that are predicted to grow and increase in the coming years.
  • Travel to work routes
  • The kind of skills that are/will be needed by industries and businesses
  • Pay and progression routes.

Interpreting and narrowing down LMI that is applicable to a young person’s needs can become overwhelming, it is therefore better to start researching areas of interest and concentrate on those industries. We also recommend looking at local resources:
