This chapter considers three unique aspects in London's migratory history through a series of other interlinked features: demography, globality, employability, social mobility, and a revisiting of diversity. These five headings can provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between migration, globality, and diversity. This is especially seen through the prism of employment because the discussions have demonstrated that, while London has for most of the last three centuries constituted the political and financial capital of the world, this has fed into its importance as a global work centre. It has attracted people from Britain, Europe, and the rest of the world seeking employment in all sectors of the economy. This includes cleaners as well as hawkers, musicians, footballers, and political and financial elites.

Keywords:   London, demography, globality, employability, social mobility, diversity, employment, migratory history, London economy
