Keeping our capital working for the UK

Capital Talent set to boost Londoners’ career prospects

As London First’s Economic Development Agenda highlights, London’s unemployment rate is persistently higher than the UK average, lower-skilled workers are not benefitting from London’s growth and are being further squeezed, and skills gaps in the local population threaten to put a brake on our city’s development.

We aim to tackle this by launching a new jobs and careers event for adult Londoners – Capital Talent.

The event, delivered in partnership with Prospects, will put thousands of Londoners with a range of skills, who are looking for work or to progress in their career, in front of many of London’s leading employers.

We plan to run the inaugural event on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 March 2016 at ExCel London, and we will be writing to your organisation shortly to discuss how you might get involved.
