This report delivers evidence-based and practical recommendations on how to better support employment and economic development in England. It builds on sub-national data analysis and consultations with local stakeholders in Nottingham and North Nottinghamshire in the East Midlands as well as Hull and Scarborough in Yorkshire and the Humber. It provides a comparative framework to understand the role of the local level in contributing to more and better quality jobs. The report can help national and local policy makers in England and the UK build effective and sustainable partnerships at the local level, which join-up efforts and achieve stronger outcomes across employment, training, and economic development policies. Co-ordinated policies can help workers find suitable jobs, while also stimulating entrepreneurship and productivity, which increases the quality of life and prosperity within a community as well as throughout the country.

Overview of the English case study areas

To better understand the role of the local level in contributing to job creation and productivity, this review examined local activities in four areas in England – two from each of two regions: (1) Nottingham; and (2) North Nottinghamshire; (from the East Midlands); and (3) Hull; and (4) Scarborough; (from Yorkshire and the Humber). This chapter provides a labour market and economic overview of each area as well as the results from an OECD LEED statistical tool which looks at the relationship between skills supply and demand at the sub-national level.
