Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in banking and finance may be interested to hear the results of an interview between a politically-minded schoolboy and a Labour parliamentary candidate.
Joel Weiner, famed for his gutsy appearances in televised political debates including the first leaders' debate, grilled Alison Moore, the Labour candidate for Finchley and Golders' Green, on degree-level employment issues in the Jewish Chronicle.
When he asked her how she could ensure there will be jobs available for graduates, she replied that she has first-hand experience of volatile job markets having been a job seeker in the recession of the 1980s.
Ms Moore added: "I believe that the best way to ensure that there are jobs for graduates is to drive the economic recovery, to invest in jobs across the board and to protect public sector services. To do that we need to halve the deficit over a sensible time frame.
"A diverse and growing economy, supported by a strong education sector will ensure there are good jobs for graduates here in Britain."
Mr Weiner also took on British National Party leader Nick Griffin on BBC's Question Time last year.
