This year 238 local employers completed the EmployerOne Survey! This was an increase of almost 100 employers from last year.
Their responses highlight the jobs in demand, skill and educational requirements and recruitment and other labour market challenges.
Since the 1970s part-time work has become gradually more predominate in the local labour market. This share has stayed the same since 2001, but the people working part-time are changing. There has been a noticeable increase in older workers, especially males.
