helping local people go further
Workplace is a recruitment centre in Newham that is committed to helping employers find the right local people to work for them and to supporting local people who want those jobs. Our free service is available to Newham residents and employers across London.
Workplace was developed to ensure that local people benefit from local regeneration. We are a one stop shop where Newham residents can receive advice about their employment options or guidance about starting a business, and where employers across London can place their vacancies to recruit quality staff.

Workplace has two fixed sites in Stratford and Canning Town, and also offers outreach sessions at children's centres, libraries, and community centres across the borough.

Our track record
Workplace opened in May 2007, and since then we've supported over 20,000 Newham residents into employment, and have helped more than 900 businesses fill their vacancies.

The Workplace team are experts in their field. We understand the needs of our customers, whether you are an employer or a jobseeker. Find out more about our team
