London job scheme unveiled
Friday, 15 May 2009
A new £23 million commitment to help people in the capital find jobs has been unveiled by the Mayor of London.
Boris Johnson announced the new scheme while at a visit to the A4e in Shepherd's Bush, outlining his vision for the initiative to offer skills and employment support to over 20,000 unemployed people in London.
People looking for graduate jobs may be interested to hear that A4e is one of the 32 recommended projects to help the jobseekers, with advice on CV writing, interview training and skills acquisition to be put on offer.
Peter Rogers, chief executive of the London Development Agency, said the scheme will deliver "real benefits to people in the capital".
He added: "We are committed to getting more Londoners into jobs or training and it is particularly important that we work with our partners to maintain the capital's strength despite the economic downturn."
A recent study by Robert Walters found that 66 per cent of employees globally would be happy to take on a public sector job.
