Amsterdam, Netherlands – Textkernel, a global leader in AI-powered recruitment and labor market intelligence technology, is pleased to announce its partnership with the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics. ONS, the recognised national statistical institute, is responsible for collecting and publishing statistics related to the economy, population, and society at various levels.

After a highly competitive public tender process, Textkernel has been chosen as the vendor of choice and will provide ONS with labor market data from their labor market insights technology, enabling the extraction of valuable and evidence-based insights. As stated in the public tender, The Office for National Statistics wanted a comprehensive set of outputs for detailed analysis of local labor markets within the UK, including job occupations and skills in demand. Additionally, the Department for Education, and the Unit for Future Skills within it will review educational requirements, apprenticeships, and training schemes based on companies’ requests.

Textkernel’s solution will deliver weekly data feeds dating back to 2017, allowing ONS to ingest and utilise the market data for various reporting purposes. The data will be mapped to geo-focused boundaries such as UK local authorities and Travel To Work Area (TTWA).
