Jobs for the Future

In the Balance leaves the studio to broadcast from the city of London and reflect on the future of manufacturing.

Do new developments in technology mean that manufacturing jobs will move from China, Germany and Japan back to countries where making things has been in decline?

And looking ahead to the future of work - what will it look like?

Join Lesley Curwen and guests: Robin Southwell, the UK CEO of airline maker and defence contractor EADS and a UK prime ministerial trade ambassador; George Magnus Senior Economic Adviser to UBS Investment Bank and Bronwen Maddox, Editor and Chief Executive of current affairs magazine Prospect.

And management consultant turned comedian, Colm O'Regan, takes a day trip from Dublin to be with them in person with his reflections on the jobs of the future.
