Labour market dynamics are inextricably linked to the social and economic well-being of a society. The role of the labour market in improving economic and social outcomes is recognised by local and central government. For Auckland Council, many of the issues addressed in this report are of central importance to delivering both the Auckland Plan 2050, the long-term spatial plan for the city (Auckland Council, 2018) and the Mayor’s vision for Auckland, ‘a world class city where talent wants to live’.
This report updates the 2014 Auckland Council report, The labour market and skills in Auckland 2014 (Wilson, R A 2014). It presents new and important insights into how the Auckland labour market is functioning, areas of skill mismatch, and who is at greatest risk of non-engagement with the labour market. The primary focus is on the 10-year period 2009 to 2019.
