Labour Market Information

Labour Market Information [LMI] can be everything from overwhelming and confusing in-depth statistics to hearing about a potential employer starting up near where you live. Learning how to use it can help young people to make informed decisions about their future study and career choices.

LMI tells you about what is happening in the job market at national, regional and local levels and includes information about jobs and salaries, what skills employers are looking for in different industrial sectors, conditions, communities and future trends.

LMI can help you discover where the job opportunities are, the sectors, occupations and locations you need to look out for, and help you identify the skills you might need to develop in the future.
