Labour Market Information

The ‘Careerometer’ widget below is a great way to get a quick snapshot of jobs and compare information about pay and projected  workforce change, including projected growth or contraction of the workforce and the projected need for replacing retiring workers. This means that a profession might experience a decline in overall numbers, but still need new recruits because of the number of older workers due to retire.

The information held in Careerometer is also used in some of the best career websites including those that have a database of jobs with key information about each role. The ones we use a lot and like are;

National Careers Service


Start Profile


Success at School

Sector specific websites also use the same information and we have curated some of the best ones (see Best Career Websites by Sector and Best Career Websites by School Subject Area).

Also we recommend that you have a look at what is going on in your local area. The LEPs (Local Enterprise Partnerships) take the lead on this. In the region CareerWave tend to work in, the two partnerships are the North East LEP and the Tees Valley Combined Authority LEP. The following links take to articles about;

Future Jobs in the North-east of England and Future Jobs in Tees Valley.

Finally, another excellent source of job information is any website that advertises jobs. This includes the Find an Apprenticeship Service.
