What a revealing list – from Office of National Statistics

The list of job titles perhaps reflects the business environment – now and back in history

Does this breakdown reflect what is going on economically?

Job titles with worker – 730

Job titles with manager – 1345

3. Electronic version of the index

As with the second edition of the SOC2000 volume 2, the coding index of SOC2010 (3.67 Mb Excel sheet) is available in electronic format.

With over 27,000 job titles how many different business types are there?

That led me to the SIC

A Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) was first introduced into the UK in 1948 for use in classifying business establishments and other statistical units by the type of economic activity in which they are engaged.

The classification provides a framework for the collection, tabulation, presentation and analysis of data, and its use promotes uniformity.

In addition, it can be used for administrative purposes and by non-government bodies as a convenient way of classifying industrial activities into a common structure.

Since 1948 the classification has been revised in 1958, 1968, 1980, 1992, 1997, and 2003.

It’s the latest version of the Standard Industrial Classification which was last revised in 2003. It’s a numerical classification that Companies House adopted to identify company principal business activities which are required to be stated on the annual return (form AR01) each year. The new classification system was adopted by the UK on 1st January 2008.

Where can you get more information about SIC 2007? – The website of the Office for National Statistics.  The PDF is over 200 pages long – suitable for another Blog post!

If you would like to build business relationships with decision makers across the South West then – cannot guarantee that there will be a “Skiver” there or a a”Lapper” just owners and directors of some of the best businesses in the South West
