More apprentices hired for London offices


  • Microsoft's head of skills and economic affairs Stephen Uden previously called the capital city the force behind the UK's economy and the organisation revealed that over the next three years, 1,000 apprentice placements will be created
  • Mr Johnson said he has tried to ensure "that these young people are poised to take advantage of any opportunities that arise for them in the future, so that London is well poised to lead the rest of the UK out of recession
  • Indeed, more than 28,000 individuals have in fact been taken on by firms with Within a year, this means the capital has advanced its share of apprenticeship starts from five per cent to 8.5 per cent, which Mr Johnson said represented the largest growth across the country
  • And he has since announced that the 20,000 apprentices target laid down by the government has been met three months early
  • Prestigious organisations that have welcomed young employees into their London offices over the past year include Sky, Capgemini, Visa Europe, Microsoft, HSBC and Norton Rose
