Charlie Ball

Head of labour market intelligence

My blog posts


I am the in-house specialist on the graduate labour market. I research and analyse all things to do with post-18 employment, including regional economies, skills supply and demand and postgraduate issues, usually with a careers and employability perspective.

Also, I sit on rather a lot of steering and advisory groups - including the Graduate Outcomes steering group and advisory bodies for AGCAS and the Institute of Student Employers.


I'm a Fellow of the National Institute of Careers Education and Counselling (NICEC) and a Visiting Fellow at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Before I came to Prospects, I worked in the pharmaceutical industry as a data specialist and before that as a postdoc - my PhD is actually in chemistry.
