New data tool in the UK developed as part of the firm’s New Skills at Work program

Apr 21, 2016

Huge mismatches exist between the workers UK employers need and the qualifications that jobseekers possess, according to a new data tool – the first of its kind in the UK – developed by the think tank IPPR and the analytics company Burning Glass Technologies, as part of JPMorgan Chase’s New Skills at Work programme.

The new tool, called "Where the Work Is", matches online data from 2014 about the vacancies that employers are offering with data about what qualifications jobseekers actually have. The unique tool allows training providers, employers and policymakers free access to look at how supply and demand for different types of jobs that require different specific skillsets vary in different areas of the UK.
