What employment and training opportunities are there for residents?

A:

Homes for Lambeth will be recruiting their second intake of paid Interns this summer. Homes for Lambeth is also planning to recruit six apprentices and six Kickstart trainees during the next financial year. All apprentices and Kickstart trainees will be paid the London Living Wage. 

To maximise the number of successful candidates that are either HFL Homes residents or living in estates that we will rebuild, we advertise these roles in our newsletters and emails to Residents. In addition to this, the Homes for Lambeth Employment team will also provide support to residents to apply for these roles on a one-to-one basis, via our CV and apprenticeship and job workshops. 

In January this year, Homes for Lambeth employed nine apprentices, of which five are Lambeth residents. Last summer, three of our paid interns were residents of the borough. Homes for Lambeth has not offered any unpaid internships and has no plans to do so. 

The Employability Team are also working closely with Contractors and Sub-contractors and Lambeth Council to ensure our Residents benefit from any opportunities that will occur from the redevelopments. This includes apprenticeships with contractors, works shops, training, advertising roles with contractors directly to residents and supporting residents into these roles.
