Labour Market Information

What is Labour Market Information?

LMI tells you about the local or national demand there is for different skills and job opportunities in different industries. LMI Also 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 in an industry or job
  • 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

Students at STM learn about LMI in the wider curriculum programme and the below website offers some very useful information including useful infographics to help make the information clearer:

You can also find out some information through local bulletin networks – for example Work Inspiration Gateshead:
