BBC2 Documentary Who Gets The Best Jobs?


2 February 2011

As a member of the Bar Council Diversity & Equality Committee, Anis Rahman OBE took part in a BBC2 documentary entitled ‘Who Gets the best Jobs?’ broadcasted on 2 February 2011.

In Who Gets the Best Jobs, Richard Bilton investigated access to the professions and found that the best jobs are being snapped up by an increasingly small gene pool of privileged, well-connected families. Getting a good degree matters more than ever and those from low income families can no longer easily work their way up from the bottom without the qualifications, contacts and social skills that their more fortunate counterparts make full use of. Richard found that Britain is a less equal society than at any time since World War One.
