This research for the Greater London Authority (GLA) showed that by 2016, it was expected that women would fill seven out of ten new jobs in London, with an extra half a million jobs in the capital.

The main key sectors for growth in women's employment during the decade were predicted to be in business service and also health, education, and retail. This presented a major opportunity for women to access well paid and varied career options, and for employers to use all the skills that women had to offer.

The GLA commissioned IES to carry out and report on the qualitative research detailed in this report.
