Workplace is for any Newham resident who is looking for work and/or apprenticeships. We work with people who are unemployed and employed so if you are looking for your first job or looking to get a better job please get in touch.
We provide a free recruitment service for any employer anywhere in London who is looking to hire. We can also provide advice about taking on apprentices.
In order to work you must prove that you are eligible to work in this country so we need to check this documentation before you begin to apply for jobs.
As our service is exclusively for Newham residents, we need to see proof of address to check that you live in the borough and are entitled to our service.
Yes, we support all Newham residents who want to find a new job whatever their current position.
Our advisors will tailor the support they give to you based on your current experience, skills and education. Our support is tailored to your needs and varies according to the individual. Some people need help with creating a CV or completing an application form. Some need help preparing for interviews and assessment centres. Others need help to get work experience and/or training for a specific role. We adapt our offer to whatever you need.
It all depends upon the particular job which interests you. Some jobs do require very specific experience and skills. However there are jobs that just require candidates to be enthusiastic, punctual, reliable and responsible as many skills can be learned on the job. We offer a wide range of roles so there is usually something to meet your needs. If we do not have the job you want then we will help you find a role which interests you and fits your skills.
Securing employment is dependent upon the amount of effort you put in when working with your advisor. They will provide you with regular support, feedback and advice. Success is mainly dependent upon you keeping appointments, following up on agreed actions, doing your own research and preparing properly for interviews. Your adviser will be there to help with all of these things.
Before you have appointments with your adviser you will need to register with the service so please register with us in order to begin this process.
Once registered, you can walk into our offices during our opening hours 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday. Our advisors are very busy so to guarantee speaking with one of them you should make an appointment. To book an appointment call 020 3373 1101 and we can agree a time for you to come in.
Workplace is completely free for both residents and employers.
