Quarterly Labour Market Report: Robust labour market augurs well for Warwickshire
Warwickshire's labour market remains encouragingly robust, the latest Quarterly Labour Market Report (QLMR) from Warwickshire Means Business reveals.
Our fourth QLMR shows the employment rate in the county continues to consistently outperform regional and national averages.
Data drawn from a wide range of sources suggests this trend is fuelled by strong job-demand amongst businesses with a higher-than average share of jobs advertised in need of high-skilled occupations.
About eight in ten working-age residents in Warwickshire are economically active which, if the trend continues, will lead to resilient growth, living standards and wellbeing.
The QLMR, compiled by Natalie Maposa from Warwickshire County Council's Economy and Skills Group, can be viewed in full here. Part of our commitment to keep you fully updated on the very latest Labour Market trends in the county, it gives insights and analysis into employment and unemployment, economic activity and inactivity and real-time demand in the current labour market.
All labour market research is collected and released every January, April, July and October and brought to you in the QLMB as soon as we have it to keep you right up to speed with everything you need to know about employment trends in Warwickshire.
The latest issue includes a special article exploring how Warwickshire’s spatial labour market is working together to achieve sustainable growth.
Our next Quarterly Labour Market Report will be published in January.
