    How is the world of work changing?

    Jobs for today, jobs for the futureIf we could gaze into a crystal ball and see the job market of the future it would be so much easier to plan our future careers. But we live in a global economy where lots of different factors can affect jobs and skills and its often hard to say where and when certain jobs are going to be needed. Where well be in five or 10 years time in our careers is important to us as individuals for many reasons but actually, the jobs well hold in the near future are important to the whole of the UK economy. You may have a good picture of todays labour market situation but looking at how the world is changing can be helpful when planning where you want to go next....

    What is the labour market?

    The labour market is a term used to describe types of employment (those requiring workers or demand) and the people available to fill those vacancies (potential employees or supply). If the people available for work dont meet the needs of the employers then there can be a mismatch resulting in unemployment and unfilled vacancies.

    Ideal scenario? Simply put, if there are enough people with the right skills and qualifications available to do the work needed and employers are offering the right levels of pay and conditions then everyone is happy!

    Labour market information can tell you the number of people in certain types of jobs, whether they work full-time or part-time, how many people are unemployed and what is likely to happen locally, nationally and even internationally over the next few years. This information can help you to make your future career decisions.

    Work facts for the 21st centuryLots of new jobs are going to be created over the next ten years. Some of these jobs will be brand new with job titles we wont have heard of.

    Do you know what these jobs are?energy analyst nanotechnologist innovation consultant

    social media analyst app designer

    reputation manageruser experience architect

    See page 17 for the answers

    The types of job available to us now and in the future will mainly be for people with at least level 2 and level 3* qualifications but over 40% of UK jobs in 2020 will be for graduates.1 Why? Because the world is changing fast and the UK needs to compete with the rest of world in areas such as engineering, research, creativity, science, technology and innovation.

    Did you know...?Over 40% of all jobs in 2020 will require graduate level qualifications (level 6 and above).2

    Sources of labour market information (LMI)If youre interested in researching the current or future job market for yourself there are a few resources which turn the statistics and data into intelligence making them easier to understand.
