Your Homes For Lambeth

Hello,

My name is Eamonn Lorimer. I’ve just joined Homes for Lambeth as Social Investment Programme Co-ordinator (employability, apprenticeships, skills & training).

My main responsibility is to develop and ensure that Lambeth residents and  particularly  those of you living on an estate which is being re-built like here, have apprenticeship, job and training opportunities resulting from our work and plans.

Professionally, I have worked in Lambeth for the last two and half years on employability matters including apprenticeships, work experience and most recently helping Lambeth Residents benefit from construction industry opportunities. And personally, I am the Chair of my Local Residents Association (RA) and appreciate how important it is for resident’s views to be heard by their Local Authorities.

I am passionate about making a positive difference in people’s lives. I’m looking forward to developing partnerships where contractors, HfL and Residents work together for the benefit of the community and each other.

Oh and when I’m not working and chairing my local RA, I am a DJ playing on two internet radio stations.

If you interested in any forthcoming apprenticeship, employability and work experience opportunities, please feel free to get in touch wiht me.
