Our Employment and Skills department works with local employers to deliver an employer-led recruitment programme through the Waterloo Job Shop, including tailored support for older job-seekers.
The Waterloo Job Shop informs residents of the employment opportunities available in their neighbourhood and supports them to apply for and secure these jobs. Dedicated employment advisors offer help with applications, coaching on interview techniques, and pre-employment training. 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.
