UK Regional Labour Market Outlook: Evaluating 2020 and Anticipating 2021

The year 2020 was quite unlike any we have ever experienced, and the effects of the Covid-19 crisis and numerous restrictions placed on millions of people will be with us throughout 2021 and long into the future.

We do this using our Job Posting Analytics (JPA), which harvests employer hiring from across tens of thousands of job boards across the country. Whilst by no means a perfect measure of employer demand, it does give us a good sense of where hiring activity is taking place.
