Labour Market Information

Labour Market Information

An important part of choosing a career path for the future is knowing which jobs are available and how many jobs in that sector there are now and are likely to be in the future. This is where Labour Market Information (LMI) is important.

 Labour market information tells you:

  • Which jobs are likely to be easiest or hardest to find in your area

  • Which are the big employers in different areas and which ones have jobs on offer

  • What skills employers are looking for and which are in short supply

  • How much you can expect to be paid in specific jobs

  • What working conditions are like

  • What qualifications will be most helpful if you want a certain career

  • What the jobs of the future might look like and which jobs might disappear
