If you’re aged 50 or over, unemployed and live in Southwark you could be eligible to join our Southwark Works employment support programme. If you are eligible you’ll get a dedicated employment adviser, who will support you on your journey into work.

We can help you find the right (or a better) job.

“My advisor helped me with the application and prepared me for the interview. She was patient and helped a lot. I was successful for the interview she prepared me for and I will start working as contract administrator.”
