The Challenge of Driving Growth in Your Area

Interventions aimed at driving growth and bringing prosperity to your area ideally need to be based on a deep understanding of which sectors make your area unique and which present the best opportunities for growth. Our aim is to offer you the insight and solid evidence about your local economy that will enable you to better understand where your interventions will be most effective.

How can we

Help You?

When it comes to driving growth, every Local Authority will face its own unique challenges. Yet there is one common challenge that we've come across time and time again: the lack of highly granular, local Labour Market Insight (LMI) upon which to base decisions about where to target interventions.

Our LMI is helping many Local Authorities to overcome this challenge. By showing them which sectors give their area a competitive advantage and which ones are best placed for growth, they are being empowered to make more informed decisions.
