How many employment opportunities have you created as a direct result of your employment schemes? Please give a breakdown by scheme, year and the amount of funding committed to each scheme.

The figures below are estimates of jobs that can be directly attributed to listed Mayoral schemes and initiatives by scheme and year.

You have asked for the funding committed to each job creation scheme. In these schemes job creation is only one outcome of programme funding and therefore it is not possible to disaggregate the costs of the job creation schemes.

The programmes are likely to have a wider impact on job creation, such as through putting in place infrastructure and other foundational arrangements that encourage new businesses to be established and enable existing business to grow.

There are also programmes that support the Mayor’s strategic objectives to promote the right conditions for good growth across the capital and the creation of jobs, not described here.
