Our Company

At Emsi, we believe that the key to creating a better national economy is to achieve better connectivity between education providers, economic developers and employers at the local and regional level. Our vision is to facilitate this connectivity by joining these sectors together through the common language of data. To achieve this, we employ a team of expert economists, data scientists and software programmers to build a dataset that is not only highly granular and extremely robust, but also accessible and easy to use.

Emsi was founded in Idaho in 2000 and now serves clients in the US, Canada, Australia and the UK.

Our Teams

Further Education

We are partnering with more than 100 colleges throughout the country, offering data solutions around a number of key issues including curriculum rationalisation, funding bids, employer engagement, apprenticeship provision, mergers, careers guidance, and course marketing. To find out how we can help your college, contact our Head of FE, Doug Heckman at

Independent Training Providers

The Government's pledge to create 3 million apprenticeships points to huge opportunities for the ITP sector. We believe that successfully taking advantage of these opportunities requires an understanding of who is hiring, which industries are growing, and where are they likely to grow. To find out how we can give you solutions to these issues, contact Doug Heckman at

Higher Education

We are working with a number of universities around the country, helping them align their course portfolios to the needs of employers, and evidencing their contribution to economic growth and student employability. To find out more about how we can help your university or higher education institution, contact our dedicated Business Development Manager for HE, Jamie Mackay at

Economic Development

A growing number of LEPs, Local Authorities, and Economic Development agencies are using our data to identify niche industries and skills in their area, to direct people into sustainable careers, and to make vital, evidence-based decisions about growth. To find out how we can help your organisation, contact our dedicated Business Development Manager for Economic Development, Martyn Gerard at


Our data is used in a number of ways across the employment sector. Employers use it for strategic talent planning, employment support service providers use it to understand where growth opportunities exist around employability programmes, and staffing companies use it to bring focus to their business planning.
