Push for greater job opportunities for young black men in London

An MP has called on large London employers to tackle the high unemployment rate of young black men in the capital showing they spend more than 5 months on average looking for their first job after leaving education, compared to less than 4 months for young white men, according to a recent survey by Totaljobs and The Diversity Trust.

Sir Stephen Timms MP, Labour member for East Ham is calling on large employers across London to take advantage of the ‘Moving on Up’ programme.
