LMI for All new vacancy dataset

Sally-Anne Barnes, Jeisson Cárdenas-Rubio, Jenny Bimrose and Derek Bosworth have been presenting on recent work to collect UK vacancy data.

As part of extending the data available in LMI for All, IER are currently piloting a web scraping technique to collect UK vacancy data. LMI for All brings together different sources of labour market data, but a complete and reliable vacancy dataset has been difficult to find. A web scraping method is currently being used to create a vacancy dataset mapped to the UK occupational classification system.

The team have presented to the Department for Education and the Skills Advisory panels this month, whilst Jeisson will be presenting more on the methodology at the upcoming Economic Statistics Centre of Excellence and BEIS virtual workshop on online job vacancy data in December.
