Labour Market Information (LMI)

The LMI for All project provides a tool can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations to support the process of identifying potential careers.

This tool helps you to compare national average wages and working hours for up to three occupations.

  • Try typing in a job that you’d like to investigate and then select a match from the list to see the data
  • You can then include a second and third choice to view the comparison if required
  • Be aware that this is national average data, but you can use it to help you get a bigger picture of the potential opportunities on offer when used in conjunction with our own IndustrySectorJob Role and Organisation profiles here on icanbea…

The Careerometer widget provides access to a selection of headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects. The data are organised by occupation: simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you.

SKILLSOMETER 

Skillsometer has been designed for those who are not sure what jobs they may be interested in. Thinking about skills, interests and the ways these can link to jobs can be a helpful first step in identifying possible future jobs. Users take the quiz, which requires them to reflect on a number statements and decide what they love, are not sure about or dislike. The statements are presented within six well established occupational categories (Artistic, Realistic, Investigative, Conventional, Enterprising, and Social), which are then ranked against jobs. Once the user has completed the quiz they are given a short list of job suggestions that are most likely to be suited to their own particular skills and interests. Each job can be explored as a description is presented together with information on pay and hours. For further information on the job, and to compare with other jobs, the user could then go to the Careerometer.
