Jobs, Business and the Economy


As Mayor, Caroline will protect jobs and grow the economy by

  • training more young people in the skills of the future, supporting small business and growing job opportunities in digital technologies
  • seizing the huge opportunities presented by Mayoral powers to create local enterprise zones and additional Mayoral development corporations, using business rates incentives to encourage new businesses
  • ensuring that every small business has access to super-fast broadband and work with providers to eliminate “not-spots” for mobile phone and data coverage across London
  • using the London Plan to deliver more business premises in new developments and oppose conversion of vital business premises to luxury flats, including permanent exemption beyond 2019 for Tech City and the Central Activities Zone


  • challenging big companies to promote entrepreneurism, through contracting and mentoring, learning from work done in the inner city areas of the United States to help combat disadvantage and discrimination 
  • setting up a Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics, on the model established in New York, led by a ‘digital ambassador’ - to put data science at the heart of decision making in City Hall
