Future jobs in the north-east of England

20th February 2019 by Richard Allnutt

In the north-east, the Local Enterprise Partnership has identified 4 ‘business opportunity areas’ which, it is hoped, will provide loads of future jobs for our young people. They are;

  • Digital
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Health and Life Science
  • Subsea, Offshore and Energy Technology

We all have a massive role to play in making sure we have a talent pipeline of young people with the skills to thrive in these areas. Of course, there are many other sectors which provide great opportunities for us. Some sectors are much smaller and might be in decline, but still need new people to replace existing staff.

The following links take us to some brilliant Labour Market Information. They inform us about the 4 growth areas and highlight some key work by innovative companies across the region.
