Young Londoners struggle to compete in jobs market
« on: August 31, 2012, 08:57:39 AM »

A new report has shown that young Londoners find it harder to find employment after leaving school than anywhere else in the country.

The study by think tank  IPPR showed that just three per cent of employers in London take on recruits who have just left school compared to 6 per cent nationwide.

The research showed that teens struggle to cope with older, more experienced workers finding taht young people in the capital were twice as likely as older workers to be made redundant despite London teens performing better on average at school than those in other areas.

Tess Lanning from IPPR called on the Mayor to interject claiming that this would allow a more “strategic approach to increasing the quality of advice and options to young people – who don’t go on to university.

She said;

“In the UK there are serious concerns with both the quantity and quality of the vocational training and job options available to non-graduates.”

According to the report 17 per cent of all 19-24 year olds in the capital are NEETS, not in education, employment, or training,

Ms Lanning added;

“Providing a job guarantee to all long term unemployed young people, backed by an obligation to take up the work, could help to mitigate the scarring effect for the rising numbers of young people out of work for long periods of time or cycling between numerous low paid jobs.”

It's not just London, i mean obviously being the capital city and therefore the largest city in the country, there are more people there, so it will seem that they are the largest numbers of people struggling to find work.   Unfortunatly it seems to be the way everywhere.  Lots of jobs about but getting them is difficult
