Wiltshire Council is opening up the world of work to young jobseekers with a wealth of information about the local employment market.

We have published an easy-to-read, user-friendly documents providing advice and tips about breaking into a range of industries.

The documents are also localised, giving specific guidance on locations across Wiltshire.

The Local Market Intelligence bulletins offer inside knowledge on trends and facts on the job market so people can understand what types of employment opportunities are around and to help plan for the future.

They include sections on:
•Demographics who is employed, what type of employment they have, what qualifications residents in the area have and average earnings
•Employment breakdown – industry sectors in your area
•Local businesses – links to interactive maps showing a selection of local businesses
•Employers in Wiltshire – how firms hire staff in the county
•Apprenticeships vacancies and opportunities
•Future jobs – employment and industry sector projections

There are separate bulletins dedicated to
•business and finance
•digital and creative
•agriculture, environmental and animal care
•health and life sciences
•manufacturing and engineering

Laura Mayes, Wiltshire Council cabinet member for education and skills, said:

These documents are a valuable resource, especially for newcomers to employment and training.

They explain what industry sectors there are in your local area, what qualifications are needed to work in those industries, relevant apprenticeships, how they recruit, examples of salaries, growth prospects, masses of information about Wiltshire employers, and where you can study.

They are incredibly useful in giving young people and the wider public a better understanding of the labour market in their area.

Labour Market Intelligence documents are available on our Local Employment Information page.
