Careers Fact Sheets Arriving in Essex

Careers Booklet

You haven't needed to follow us closely to know what we've been up to over the past couple of months, but if you didn't know, we have been producing local careers information for Greater Essex students.

Nearly 20,000 of our 'What's Your Thing' careers booklets will be delivered to every year 9 student in Essex, Southend and Thurrock. January 5th 2017 will see thousands of Essex residents receive their copy of this valuable information which will inform them of some of the priority sectors, as well as the roles within them and the critical skills to these industries.

This booklet is in response to local evidence based research conducted by the ESB, as well as employer feedback, which all demonstrates key skills shortages in:

  1. Advanced Manufacturing & Engineer
  2. Care
  3. Construction
  4. Finance & Insurance
  5. Health
  6. IT, Digital & Creative
  7. Logistics

We hope that these booklets both inform and inspire our future workforce to consider some of the amazing career opportunities available within Greater Essex. From job roles such as Aerospace Engineer; Civil Technician; Social Worker; Pharmacist; Web Developer; Distribution Manager and Corporate Treasurer, there are thousands of career paths to choose from right here in Essex.
