Northumberland County Council has become the latest local authority to introduce our online Find Your Career tool. Find Your Career utilises our local-level occupational labour market information to present current and forecasted employment trends and earnings information for over 350 different occupations in a specified area. For the version used by Northumberland County Council, the careers and occupation information have been set for the Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle areas.
According to the Council, the tool will be used by staff working with young people and unemployed adults, schools and post-16 learning providers to help students and those looking for work to plan appropriately and prepare for future employment demand. Councillor Scott Dickinson, Business Chair at Northumberland County Council, commented:
“We’re delighted to bring the Find Your Career tool to Northumberland as part of our Learning and Skills Service. The new tool is going to be valuable in helping people to identify opportunities and make educated decisions about finding or progressing their careers. The new system offers a lot more detail than is currently available on similar platforms and actively promotes participation in education, employment and training to help residents achieve their career goals.”
