Purpose: There is renewed interest in the professions as a range of occupations pursue professionalisation projects. This paper turns analysis to an important omission in current research – the skills deployed in the work of these professions. Such research is necessary because skills determine the formal classification of occupations as a profession. Design: Drawing on qualitative research, this article explores the deployment of skills in work of one newly professionalised occupation in the UK...

Skills have become a major competitive factor for many countries and have been emphasised in national economic and social policies (OECD, 2011). It is therefore not surprising that governments at all levels in the EU – supra - national, national and sub - national – have skills strategies. These strategies have typically centred on boosting the supply and stock of skills in the labour market. The European Commission’s Agenda for New Skills and Jobs (2012) is one such example, arguing for a highe...

Drawing on research of Australian cafes, this article examines the link between product market strategies, skill and pay. Addressing the methodological problems within existing research, the findings not only suggest a new methodology for future research examining these linkages but also a new theoretical proposition about the linkages based on occupation rather than firm, industry or sector.

The article provides a framework for reflection focused on interventions within and outwith the workplace. Drawing on secondary data, it outlines the renewed policy and academic interest in job quality, examines the multilevel reasons for intervention and the factors that shape this intervention, and evaluates the loci...

On June 23, 2016, on a turnout of 72.2% of those eligible to vote, a small majority (51.9% vs 48.1%) in UK’s EU referendum voted to leave the EU. UK people will now no longer be citizens of the EU but tourists and visitors to it. However it was an accidental exit. The referendum was called by UK Prime Minister David Cameron to appease his own party’s rebellious backbench MPs. But Brexit was not the intended outcome. Cameron only triggered the referendum because he thought the Government would wi...
