EmploySE1 was started in order to help promote and advertise local jobs to residents through an employment support network.
Four years since its launch in Southwark the project now has two members of staff, also covers Lambeth and is now advertising just over 100 vacancies a month.
To date the project has registered over 300 local employers advertising over 2000 jobs.
“It’s been record breaking, businesses are growing and keen to recruit locally. We’ve seen the fastest growth in vacancies since we started in 2011. ” Says Martin Mannion, EmploySE1 Business Development Manager.
“Businesses in SE1 & SE11 have more confidence to employ local residents, they understand the benefits and believe that their jobs can make a difference in the local economy.”
The largest increase in vacancies have been in hospitality, however the range of jobs is wide. Any business of any size can register online and advertise a job.
These jobs are then distributed to wide network of employment support companies and their candidates then apply for any suitable vacancies.
The employer can select and interview the best candidate for their job.
