World of work — new information to help you plan your future

We have just completely rewritten and updated the World of work area of our website, designed to help you find out about the world of work and how labour market information, or LMI, can help you when planning for your future. It has 2 main parts: World of work explained where you can find out general world of work information and job trends in Birmingham, and World of work job sectors that give you information on each job sector including national and local labour market information. There’s also a new PDF download with all this information in a convenient booklet.
