Mayor of London Recruitment Drive for young Black men

The Greater London Authority (GLA) and The Equal Group are hosting a 3-day event from 5th - 7th July 2021 showcasing career opportunities in construction for young Black men.

Young Black Men have some of the highest unemployment rates in London with 33% out of work and seeking employment, compared to 15% of young White Men.

The GLA Design Labs is a 12-month programme supporting large Construction and Infrastructure businesses to tackle the under-representation of young Black men aged 16 to 24 years in the sectors.  This recruitment drive is a major part of this programme, and aims to match young Black men with vacancies within the construction and infrastructure sector.

There will be a wide variety of different organisations attending from the construction sector, alongside a variety of roles being advertised.  Thames Water, Hyperoptic, Balfour Beatty, Ferrovial and SGN are just some of the companies participating in the Recruitment Drive. 

This event is open and completely free to all, but particularly encourages and welcomes attendance from people who identify as both Black and male, and are aged between 16-24.
