A new programme, Journey2Work, offers individual, ongoing support to job-seekers aged 50 or over.
The initiative has secured over 700 people a job in their community to date, meeting local aspirations that residents must benefit from a flourishing South Bank and helping employers find committed workers on their doorstep.
The Journey2Work programme supports all those eligible – residents of Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark aged 50 or over and out-of-work for six months or more – to help them overcome barriers to taking up jobs. With support, older job-seekers can access the many jobs created in South Bank in beyond, helping employers facing recruitment challenges.
Under the programme, the Job Shop’s employment advisors support older job-seekers to find work by using connections with local employers – South Bank Employers’ Group members. It also helps those supported to create professional CVs and to improve their interview techniques and provides on-going mentoring once they secure employment.
Journey2Work is delivered in partnership with G4S with funding from the European Social Fund and Department for Work and Pensions.
