A summary of the automotive labour market

Date: Thursday 22 July 2021

The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) has produced its annual sector baseline report for 2021.

The content of the report is generated from Emsi data, which gives a view of industry occupations in: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Data is updated annually, so the most recent full year is 2020.

Emsi data gives the IMI a full, contextualised view of the labour market, covering all 563 industry and 369 occupation classifications across all regions of the country, which has enabled IMI to examine the automotive sector through both a subsector (industry) and occupation lens. The report outlines historical trends, skills demand and, seeks to predict some future trends for the sector. This means that IMI has been able to drill down to the most specific (SIC and SOC), at National, Government Office Region, County/Unitary Authority and Local Authority levels.

In addition, staffing patterns allow IMI to see the occupational make up of any industry for any area, whilst staffing patterns allow them to pick any occupation and identify the industries that employ people in this role. The data is created from a collection of nine Government sources,and describes labour market conditions across Britain.

For the purpose of the report, IMI has used Government Office Region for regional analysis.
