The labour market

Employers in the Bath area benefit from Bath's proximity to Bristol and its location in the wider West of England.  The West of England Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has put together a series of Labour Market Intelligence reports, which offer an overview of the subregional skills base in twelve key and growth sectors.  These bring local employment data to life and offer a good introduction to employers considering the Bath area as a business location.

The West of England Local Enterprise Partnership's Skills Prospectus 2016 is also a useful guide to local strengths and courses available across further education establishments in the West of England.

Our sector pages also give an overview of the businesses already based here and the sector networks available (both locally and nearby in Bristol) to help employers tap into the local talent pool.
