Economy & Employment

The Observatory monitors the economic well-being of Warwickshire. We contribute to the production of the County’s Local Economic Assessment, and help produce a quarterly Economic and Labour Market Summary. Our annual Quality of Life Report also covers other local economic indicators. These include, Gross Value Added (GVA), employment and unemployment, earnings, benefit claimants, and skills. Warwickshire County Council’s Economic Development service offers a range of advice for businesses. Businesses looking to relocate to or expand in Warwickshire can obtain free advice and support from the Warwickshire Investment Partnership.
