1. Introduction

This report is an update on the characteristics of job vacancies within Tees

Valley covering the period January 2017 – December 2017 (inclusive). Tees

Valley covers the five local authority districts of Darlington, Hartlepool,

Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees.

The data used is drawn from the commercial ‘Labour Insight Jobs (Burning

Glass Technologies) product. This searches the internet for job adverts.

Consequently only jobs advertised via the internet will be included in this report.

Occupations are defined by the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification

(SOC) system. TVCA Key Sectors definitions based on the 2007 Standard

Industrial Classification (SIC) system can be found in Appendix A.

Numbers are not comparable with previous reports due to revisions in the

methodology used by Labour Insight to classify vacancies.

The level of representation of job vacancies advertised on the web is open to

question as there may be variations in mode of recruitment by sector and size of

business.

An increase in job vacancies may be an indication of new job creation,

skills shortage vacancies or high staff turnover.

2. Key Findings

There were 32,803 job vacancies advertised online in Tees Valley between

January and December 2017.

16,750 Tees Valley residents were unemployed1 in 2017 with 2 jobs

advertised for every unemployed person, this compares to 12 jobs per

unemployed person nationally.

There has been a 4% rise in job vacancies when compared to 2016 (1,403

extra vacancies), in comparison to an 11% increase nationally and a 13%

increase across the North of England2.

The largest number of job vacancies in Tees Valley in 2017 were for Caring

Personal Service occupations with 3,518 job vacancies, followed by

Science, Research, Engineering and Technology Professionals3 with

3,255 vacancies, then Health Professionals with 3,166 vacancies.

The largest rise when compared to 2016 is for Science, Research,

Engineering and Technology professionals, with a 26% increase and

vacancies increasing from 2,591 in 2016 to 3,255 in 2017 (an extra 664

vacancies).

This is followed by a 23% rise in vacancies for Business, Media and Public

Service Professionals with vacancies increasing from 1,612 in 2016 to

1,983 in 2017 (371 extra vacancies).

The average advertised wage in Tees Valley remains competitive at £28,800

compared to a national wage of £35,300. The Tees Valley average has risen

by 4.7% over the last year compared to a 1.7% fall in the average advertised

wage nationally.

The National Health Service advertised the highest number of vacancies in

2017 with 2,258 vacancies.

Out of the 19,117 vacancies which could be allocated to an industry sector,

the Health and Social Care sector shows the highest proportion of

vacancies with 30% of all vacancies (5,816 vacancies) followed by Public

Admin, Defence and Education with 23% (4,492 vacancies).

This large percentage of job vacancies available for public sector jobs

reflects the larger than average public sector employment within Tees

Valley, with latest figures from ONS showing that 25% of all employment

within Tees Valley is public sector, compared to 21% nationally.

1 Unemployed – an average of those claiming either Job Seekers Allowance or Universal Credit and available to work between January – December 2017

2 The North region includes the North East, North West and Yorkshire and Humber.

3 This occupational group includes IT and Telecommunication professionals.

skills4 than those advertised nationally, with 36% requiring a Level 2

with a 28% fall in vacancies requiring a Level 2 qualification (6% fall

nationally) and a 20% rise in vacancies requiring a Level 5 or above

qualification (11% increase nationally).

The tables below summarise the changes in job vacancy numbers by Tees

Valley district over the last year and last three years respectively5:

6. Average Advertised Wage

The average advertised wage8 in Tees Valley remains competitive at

£28,800 compared to a national wage of £35,300.

Tees Valley has a tradition of lower salaries, this along with an increase of

lower paid jobs such as carers and teaching assistants results in a

competitive average wage for Tees Valley.

When compared to 2016 the Tees Valley average advertised wage has seen

a 4.7% increase (an extra £1,300) compared to a 1.7% decrease nationally.

2017 figures from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) show

that the average annual gross salary for full time workers in Tees Valley was

£29,770, compared to £35,420 nationally. This shows that the average

advertised wage of £28,800 in 2017 is lower than the existing average Tees
