Here for Work

We have been running employment training since 2015 and thanks to our strong relationships with the South Bank Employers’ Group and South Bank BID, we’ve been able to send 95% of our students straight to interview and into permanent jobs. We’re now running courses with more emphasis on resilience, in partnership with Big Local, Bermondsey, and with Waterloo hostels. The job market may be more challenging but our networks are stronger than ever.

 

Employability and resilience courses

Our Here for Work employability and resilience courses help get local people into jobs. The one-day courses are tailored to the different needs and circumstances of the individuals on each course. But students can expect to cover: 

Where to look for jobs

What salaries to aim for

Interview techniques

Time management skills

The importance of professionalism and conflict resolution in the workplace.

“We’re here to help local people struggling to find work in this post-Covid world. Job-searching and making applications starts on the course. At the end of the day you’ll be heading off with a CV, a positive attitude and interviews to go to. And because we have good contacts with local employers, 95% of our graduates get jobs – in construction, retail sales, hospitality, childcare and other sectors.”

Daniel Gregory, Course Leader

Here for Work is about more than getting people jobs though. Daniel explains: “The course is only the beginning. We match people with mentors and we stick with them for the long run. Whatever challenges life and work puts in their path, we’re here for them.”
