Research: labour market and the economy

We carry out primary and secondary research to assist clients who are developing business strategies or managing project delivery. You can commission us to carry out secondary research into skills and the labour market - for all industry sectors, or selected ones.

We will identify the trends from a variety of sources, gather the latest statistics for national, regional or local areas, and present them in a comprehensive report for you.

Sometimes, you may want us to gather information directly from a wide range of people in business or the public sector. New primary research, though more time consuming, can be very worthwhile because it focuses on specific needs you have identified.

Sectors where we have been commissioned to write labour market or economic reports include:

  • Construction
  • Cultural and creative industries
  • Financial services
  • Health and social care
  • Hospitality
  • Manufacturing
  • Public administration
  • Retail
  • Transport and logistics
  • Voluntary and community sector
  • In the transport and logistics sector we have written reports on Europe's major ports and world trade routes.
