Labour Market Information

What is Labour Market Information [LMI] ?

Labour market information is information relating to the world of work, employment trends, job roles and job availability.


Why is it important ?

When choosing a course, job or employment sector to work in, it is important to know about your local labour market.  Will there be jobs available in your area of interest ?

Where can you find LMI ?

There are a number of useful online sources. Search NOMIS [click here] or D2N2 [ click here ] to find the statistics in your local area.

Also, checkout job vacancies online, newspapers and at the local job centre. Search professional bodies/institutes linked to your career interest area as they often list vacancies but also will provide other useful information such as entry requirements and appropriate courses.
