He has 20 years of experience in the field of labour market analysis, with a focus on local labour markets, sectoral skills needs and national skills priorities.

Abstract: The last 20 years have seen huge changes in the UK labour market arising out of a range of drivers including globalisation and technology, which few if any could have predicted. The accelerating rate of change that we can all observe in today's world could mean an even greater transformation in the years to come. This seminar will draw on the UKCES Future of Work study, focusing on the following elements:

  • Key trends expected to shape the future development of the UK labour market
  • Potential disruptions that can lead to a sharp deviation from established trends
  • Alternative scenarios that have been produced, one of which is reference case, three which model the impact of disruptions
