Labour Market Information
We think Leicestershire is an amazing place to live and work. As one of the most vibrant areas in the East Midlands there is a lot to shout about.
Quick fact…did you know in Leicester and Leicestershire over 99% of local businesses are micro (0-9 staff), small (10-49 staff) or medium enterprises (who employ 50 to 249 staff). If that sounds interesting you could visit the World of Work website which has much more information on the local labour market with easy to read facts and figures.
District snapshot guides summarise information about key local employers across the city of Leicester and each of the seven districts of Leicestershire.
Each snapshot summarises:
- General population information
- Key sectors
- Most advertised jobs
- Numbers of businesses
- Local schools and colleges
- NVQ levels
