Skills London is organised by London First and Prospects.
We are an influential business membership organisation with the mission to make London the best city in the world in which to do business.
London First is a not-for-profit organisation, entirely funded by its members. Our agenda is developed independent of party political motives or affiliations.
We represent the capital’s leading employers in key sectors, such as financial and business services, property, transport, ICT, creative industries, hospitality and retail. Our membership also includes higher education institutions and further education colleges.
We work to ensure the capital has a high quality workforce that benefits a world city. Find out more here.
