Time For City Firms To Reach Out To London’s Young Black Men

In the most ethnically diverse city in the world, young black men struggle to land good City jobs.

A study by the Black Training and Enterprise Group (BTEG) shows that young black men are less likely than young white men to be working in London’s finance sector.

Through in-depth interviews with young black men already working or looking for jobs in the City, the research found that most had experienced barriers, with almost one third citing racial discrimination as the main reason why fewer young black men are working in finance roles.
