Job Landscape in Somerset


Job Landscape in Somerset

Skilled trade occupations account for 15 per cent of employment in Somerset, compared to 10 per cent in the UK nationally, which reflects the importance of manufacturing in the area. Professional occupations, managers and senior officers, and technical occupations account for 40 per cent of employment. The trend toward high-skilled occupations is expected to increase. Manufacturing and aerospace remain important, as do energy and water, and hotels and catering. There has been a proposal for the construction and operation of a nuclear reactor that could bring thousands of job to the county. Currently, the area is primarily a small business economy, where 85 per cent of businesses employ ten or fewer employees.
