We currently estimate that 95,000 jobs have been created in 2012/13 and 2013/14 so far. It is forecast that at least a further 105,000 jobs will be created in 2014/15 and 2015/16. This means that over 200,000 jobs are expected to be created over the entire Mayoral term.

These estimates can be found in the paper presented to the Investment and Performance Board on 19 August 2014 (agenda item 9  http://www.london.gov.uk/moderngov/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=234&MId=5463&Ver=4) as well as on the London Datastore (GLA key performance indicators http://data.london.gov.uk/dataset/gla-key-performance-indicators).
