The Labour Market

What is it? The labour market is the environment where employers look and compete for workers, and where job seekers look and compete for jobs.

This environment changes all the time, and it’s important to know what’s happening in Torbay and nationally as it has an effect on how many opportunities are out there and how much competition there is.
