Hyde Plus has joined forces with 15 other housing associations to launch Love London Working, an exciting new training and employment programme to help unemployed people aged over 16 into work.
So far, Hyde’s Love London Working advisors have helped more than 21% of the programme participants into jobs and have supported an additional 15% into further training.
The programme aims to provide information, advice and guidance and a range of other services to help people build their confidence and skills and get into employment, training or help them move closer to the jobs market. Advisors also carry out benefits checks with applicants to ensure they are financially stable after gaining employment.
London residents are able to access this FREE employment and training service and will be assigned to a qualified and experienced Employment Advisor who will work with them on a one-to-one basis and help them get information on different job opportunities as well as providing support with job applications, CV writing and interview practice.
Love London Working is funded by the European Social Fund, so the programme is open to anyone who meets the following criteria:
- Aged over 16
- Unemployed and has the right to work
- Lived in the UK for the past 3 years
- Currently lives in a London borough
Our customers say that the employment support they have received helped them overcome the barriers they had and gave them the confidence they needed to pursue their dreams and inspirations. Read how Victoria was helped to get into work and off benefits.
Hyde’s Love London Working team will be at the Lewisham Jobs fair on 6 October and has training courses scheduled in London during October and November, some of which will lead directly to jobs.
If you know anyone who meets the above requirements and is looking to get into work but isn’t sure how, Love London Working could be the answer!
