The Mayor of London Boris Johnson has today announced a major extension to his graduate employment website by posting over 250 work opportunities on the site's own newly created jobs board.

This follows the highly successful launch of the site last month, which has generated great interest, not just from London's graduate community, but also from potential employers with a wide range of work opportunities to advertise. Even ahead of the jobs board launch a number of employers have approached The Careers Group, University of London, who administer the site on behalf of the Mayor, asking to have their jobs posted on the site. The addition of the jobs board not only satisfies this demand, but is part of the Mayor's longer term plans to expand the site to offer more help, both to graduates, and to other groups of Londoners looking for work and training opportunities.

The jobs board will allow graduates to search for jobs across London. Current highlights include a three-year marketing fellowship with the WPP group of companies, an internship with the Royal Society of Arts, software developer opportunities with Orbis Technology, and a deputy economist position at the Economist Intelligence Unit.
