Embedding skills and employment outcomes across our supply chain is taken forward by the GLA Group Supplier Skills Team. Activity includes the use of innovative contractual clauses and developing strong relationships with our suppliers.

I am delighted to report that half way through the year the team have already created 695 job starts for workless Londoners.
