Labour Market Information (LMI) is key to understanding the employment and jobs landscape in your local area.
The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) commissioned the development of ten LMI Sector Guides drawing together data for Cornwall’s biggest sectors.
This information can be used to help young people make decisions about their future in Cornwall, help businesses to understand the future of their sector and to help individuals know which upskilling qualifications will be most important for their future and developing careers.
The digital and tech sector makes up one of the fastest growing sectors across the UK. Cornwall is home to the fastest growing tech sector in the South West, with forecasted annual growth of 17.9% by 2026.
This growth, along with growing numbers of digital jobs across many sectors, rapid changes in technology, and employers struggling to find people with the right skills, has all led to a digital sector recruitment crisis.
