London sits proud as the UK's capital city. With nearly 8m residents and covering more than 600 square miles, it boasts an economy that matches other global leaders such as New York and Tokyo. It's also a leader in fashion, art, sport and tourism - the 2012 events of the Queen's jubilee and the Olympics will only increase the city's profile around the world even further. The River Thames adds another dimension to the economic and tourist profile: As well as providing river tours for visitors, the river hosts the second largest port in the UK. The Thames is also a vital transport link for residents and businesses. Add to all this the network of underground railway tunnels, the airports and motorway links and it's easy to see why this is a city which intends to stay in the world's premiership league.

The population of London - and its visitors - all need management. It's home to the UK parliament of course including 74 MPs of its own. There's also a Greater London Authority, London Assembly, the City of London (which concentrates on the 'square mile' at the heart of the city) and 32 borough authorities. But even those administrative bodies only scrape the surface: there are also hundreds of transport, health, education and similar organisations along with countless quangos and smaller councils. Working in these sectors means playing a vital role in the running of the city. It also means plenty of opportunity for career progression with the next step of the career ladder available either with your existing employer or by 'jumping ship' to any of London's other public sector employers.
London's geographical position in Europe and its link between the American and Eastern economies makes it a home of choice for most of the world's financial companies. Originally the City of London itself (dubbed the Square Mile) was home to the finance houses. Many still exist there but Canary Wharf in the east of London has been developed to allow this sector to grow in both a physical and economic sense. Canary Wharf houses about 90,000 employees and here you'll find the like of HSBC, Barclays, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Credit Suisse - the list just goes on and on! Graduates are favoured and it's a high pressure world but with obvious financial rewards for the successful. Browse Finance jobs here.
