Work Connections is here to ensure that residents across our boroughs receive the support they need to find and keep good work, and have careers that they can be proud of.

As part of the Mayor of London’s ‘No Wrong Door’ (NWD) initiative, Local London’s Work Connections brings together employment services, employers and residents looking for work, apprentice/traineeships or training opportunities.

Our Work Connections website has a wealth of information to help connect people and opportunities. Our team will work face-to-face with residents, employers, job centre staff and service providers to help people find the right work and training opportunities for them.

We will work to ensure people across the sub region can access the work and learning options available to them, and work especially hard to reach these priority groups:

  • Special Educational Needs (SEN) and residents with disabilities, aged 19 and above.
  • Low-skilled 19 to 24-year-olds (anyone without maths and English at Level 2).
  • Those aged 50 and above.

How do we help people looking for work or training?

Are looking for a job? Thinking about changing to a different job or career, or just interested to see what job and career options are available in your area? Want to know which sectors are recruiting?

Or would like to improve your skills, find a course, or want help improving your CV? Or want to know about employment services in your area and where you can get advice?

How will we work with employment service advisers?

We are committed to helping more people in our boroughs get jobs and have careers they value.

Job centre and employment service providers play a huge role in helping people understand the jobs and training available to them.

About No Wrong Door
