Underutility

Another of the ways in which London’s workforce is not fulfilling its potential is the number of people working in jobs for which they are overqualified. In many parts of the workforce, this is extremely difficult to quantify. Estimates for graduates working in roles that do not require a degree-level qualification are nearly one in three of all graduates in London, and even higher for recent graduates. However, graduates in London are more likely to be in a graduate role than in the UK as a whole.
