What do you need to get a good job?
Every young Londoner, whatever their background, needs these four core attributes to get a good job:
Awareness of opportunities in London and how to take advantage of them
Aspiration to make the most of the potential that London has to offer
Ability to maximise full potential and achieve a sustainable career
Access to London’s job market
