Careerometer Widget

The Careerometer widget can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations to support the process of identifying potential careers. It provides access to a selection of headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects. Simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you. Click 'More Info' and it tells you what that career role involves and some typical tasks. You can select UK average and compare careers of interest alongside that information.
