As part of the LMI for All service, we provide two widgets – Careerometer and Skillsometer. These widgets are free to use and you only have to embed the code in your own website. Both widgets have been designed for young people, but can be used by others. They provide an easy way to get access to labour market information on your own website. The code, instructions and personalisation options are available for each widget:

Skillsometer can help you  discover what jobs you might like to do in the future. You will be presented with a series of statements. Select the emoji shows how you feel about each statement. You will then be given suggestions of jobs linked to what you most enjoy doing. For each job, you will be presented with some headline UK data.

Example of occupational descriptions data visualised in Careerometer

Careerometer can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations, help you learn about different occupations and identify potential careers. It provides access to a selection of UK headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects for different occupations, as well as description of the occupation. Simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you. You can then look up another two occupations and compare. You can also select ‘display the UK average’ and compare the information with the occupation you have selected.
