Ahead of the London mayoral elections next week, The Huffington Post UK teamed up with LinkedIn to conduct an opinion poll asking London based professionals to voice their opinions on the widely debated topic of supporting business in the capital. Out of almost 1,000 London voters, 35% felt that job creation was the most important factor in supporting London businesses.
The poll findings come as it's revealed that Britain is back in recession, with recent figures showing that London has the second highest unemployment rate of any British region. Those aged 18-29 were the most vocal on the subject of job creation, with this age group making up the majority of those keen for it to be the new Mayor's top priority and reflecting the high levels of youth unemployment blighting the capital.
The poll also revealed that improvements to transport links and entrepreneurial support were of equal importance to voters, with each receiving 19% of the votes respectively. A further 14% of voters felt that crime and security should be the next mayor's priority, whilst the remaining 12% believed infrastructure should be the focus of our next mayor's efforts.
