Square Mile Jobs is a European Social Fund (ESF) and City of London Corporation funded project which aims to help unemployed London residents to find jobs in the City. It is targeted at people aged 18 to 65 from the 'fringe' boroughs (Camden, Islington, Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Lambeth and Southwark), and offers one-to-one advice about working in the City, information about what employers want from candidates, work tasters, events with employers and access to sustainable jobs with peer mentoring.

The main policy intention behind the project is to allow the six fringe boroughs to share the wealth and be able to benefit from the opportunities available at the City. This is done by supporting people on JSA and economically inactive people looking for work in the six fringe boroughs to access jobs in the City.
