An Introduction to our LMI Page

What is the LMI and what’s in it for you?

Labour Market Information (LMI) gives you an insight into what is happening in the jobs market locally, regionally and nationally. This information can highlight where there are new or expanding industries, where the skills gaps lie and what future trends there may be.
Using LMI when choosing a career is very useful as it helps you to understand where the opportunities are in your chosen sector, what skills you need, what progression there may be and how industries may evolve or change, which will help you to make decisions about your future.

The data are organised by occupation: simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you.
