Your manifesto pledge to create 20,000 part time jobs was intended to help get parents back into work. How can you make sure these jobs are in a range of sectors and require a range of skills, to reflect the diversity of qualifications and experiences parents will have had before temporarily coming out of the workforce?

The 20,000 jobs commitment is not sector specific and relates to a range of opportunities created by my direct investments.

In addition, my London Enterprise Panel  are developing the European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) Strategy for London, which in consultation with the Child Poverty Action Group and London Councils has developed two priorities specifically to address parental employment.  The funds will focus on getting parents into the most suitable opportunities across a range of sectors.
