Trends

Trends in employment vary from Sector to Sector and can be affected by a number of factors. Since 2016 there have been significant changes in number of employees in occupational areas, some of this is due to the “brexit” impact with migrants employed in these sectors returning to their country of origin decreasing the numbers employed in those sectors.  This does not mean that those sectors are declining in terms of employment opportunities,  in the case of construction and Health & Social care there are big skills gaps and a large number of vacancies unfilled.
