Report coverMore support needed to help veterans reach their full potential

A new report, Longer-term Employment Outcomes of Ex-Service Personnel, is one of the first UK studies that looks beyond the first two years of resettlement.

The report from QinetiQ, in partnership with Warwick Institute for Employment Research and RFEA – The Forces Employment Charity, and commissioned by Forces in Mind Trust (FIMT), found that UK veterans face challenges finding longer-term civilian careers that enable them to reach their full potential.

Classifying vacancy data at 6-digit level SOC 2020: A feasibility study

A frequent claim from labour market information users is the lack of disaggregated data to identify the current requirements of the labour demand. A new feasibility study, conducted by Dr Jeisson Cardenas-Rubio, proves that data collected from job vacancies can provide a source of information at the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) 6-digit level.

Using these data in further analyses, it would be possible to examine labour demand, wage levels, and education and skills requirements (and trends) at this occupational level. With this disaggregated information, education and training providers could have a high-quality source of updated labour demand information to align their programmes with the employers’ needs.
