LMI for all

Labour Market Information (or LMI) can be a confusing concept to begin with but in truth, it’s much simpler than you might think.

LMI can help visual what the job market is like in a particular area of the country, or in a particular industry. It can outline how many people in a given area work within a particular industry (such as manufacturing, or health and social care) and which industries are set to grow in the next few years. This can be very useful when looking at changing careers, or planning future career ideas as it helps identify the likelihood of finding local opportunities in the future.

It can also show the average wages for a location or industry and average working hours to help you make well informed future decisions.

The expert advisers at the National Careers Service can help you understand the LMI in your area for free– call anytime between 8am and 10pm everyday on 0800 100 900 for free, impartial advice.

Exploring Career Ideas

It is never too early to start thinking about what you might like to do and there are lots of great websites that offer you the opportunity to explore any ideas you may have. 

It is quite normal for ideas to change over time but the more ideas you have, explore and consider, the better informed you will be - helping you to make good decisions about which pathway to follow.
