Labour Market Information
Lutterworth College work closely with the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP), the Careers & Enterprise Company and the Enterprise Advisor Network to help inform our students about the world of work and the local labour market.
Above you will find the electronic version of the (LLEP) 'World of Work' booklet which is a fantastic resource available for students which highlights:-
- different work sectors across the LLEP area
- numbers of people employed in those areas
- which jobs are in demand
- skills that employers value
- suggested links to find out more about working in that sector
There are a number of thriving industries in Leicestershire including logistics, advanced manufacturing & engineering, food & drink, health & social care, business & finance and textiles to name a few.
Additionally, Leicestershire is proud to have a booming tourism and hospitality sector as well as a growing space industry. There are a number of large organisations based in the area including Next, Amazon, Caterpillar, Triumph and Santander offering excellent career opportunities.
The World of Work booklet is available as a hard copy to all students from Years 7-13 from Mrs. Cant

The Careerometer is a tool used to compare jobs.
Use the Careerometer below to compare different jobs — salary, working hours, etc.
All you have to do is click the dotted square then type in the first career that you think you might be interested in and select from the drop-down list. Then add your second choice so that you can see the comparison.
The Careerometer uses national LMI data to provide information on how a specific job will grow. Students can compare up to three jobs.
