Office for National Statistics Chooses Textkernel to Enhance Data-Driven Insights on UK Labour Markets

Press release

UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics, The Office for National Statistics (ONS), partners with Textkernel to enrich their online job market insights and support evidence-based strategies with real-time data.

Amsterdam, Netherlands – Textkernel, a global leader in AI-powered recruitment and labour 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 labour market data from their market intelligence solution, Jobfeed®, 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 labour 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). 

Gerard Mulder, CEO of Textkernel, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, “We are proud to support the Office for National Statistics in their mission to provide real-time, accurate and reliable statistical labour market data that influence critical decisions. By entrusting Textkernel with their online job market insights needs, the ONS validates Textkernel’s expertise, quality, and capability to deliver recruitment and HR solutions of the highest standard.”
