Local Labour Market Information

What is labour market information?

Labour market information (LMI) focuses on giving you information about the local area you live in:

  • Wage rates
  • Job availability
  • Skills gaps
  • Unemployment rates
  • Reports from professional bodies
  • Economic summaries from the local area

Labour market information ensures that young people are equipped with the information needed to make well-informed and realistic decisions.


Up to date information can be found by using the ‘careerometer’ widget on our website to research jobs, salaries and the pathways for a wide and varied number of jobs.
