Waterloo Job Shop
Waterloo Job Shop provides a local job brokerage service to unemployed residents of Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth.
Waterloo Job Shop is a local job brokerage facility that has successfully placed local people into employment. It also offers pre-employment training courses to help people improve their skills, including CV writing and interview techniques. The Job Shop is led by a partnership between South Bank Employers’ Group, Jobcentre Plus and the London Borough of Lambeth.
The Waterloo Job Shop, run by South Bank Employers’ Group, supports the community by raising residents’ employment aspirations and helping more of them to get jobs or to start their own businesses. They are also working with employers to encourage local recruitment and helping local people in Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth to learn new skills and retrain to suit the changing job market, including tailored support for older job-seekers.
Based in Lower Marsh, behind Waterloo Station, the Waterloo Job Shop informs residents of the employment opportunities available in their neighbourhood and supports them to apply for and secure these jobs. Their 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.
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.
