In our previous Shedding Light on the Labour Market, we looked at the Green Economy, identifying a total of 366 relevant job titles in our Job Posting Analytics data, and seeing how demand has been changing at the national and Government Office Region level. In this piece, we want to delve a little deeper, this time looking at demand at the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and devolved government level, as well as taking a brief look at the salaries being advertised for these jobs across the country.
@Burning_Glass and @EmsiData Announce Merger to Provide Deeper Labour Market Insights and Advance Workforce Development
BOSTON-Burning Glass Technologies (“Burning Glass”) recently announced it is merging with Emsi to create a leading labor market analytics firm. As part of the transaction, Burning Glass’ largest investor, KKR, is making a follow-on investment in the combined company, and Strada Education Network, Emsi’s current owner, will be exiting its investment. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Although there has been much talk about the Green Economy in recent years, and particularly in the last year or so, there has been surprisingly little discussed about what this means in terms of the labour market.
In today's Shedding Light on the Labour Market, we want to focus on the importance of understanding how local labour markets are often vastly different from one another, even with those that are in close proximity, and therefore why it is vital for those making decisions relating to their labour market to identify demand trends at the local level.
