This role is working within a partnership between the council and a major partner with a large property portfolio of more than 300 businesses as local tenants. To ensure that employers are actively engaged in the local employment and skills agenda, securing and connecting a broad range of good quality employment and skills opportunities with local residents, including key local target groups.

Key responsibilities:

  • Engage local employers and discuss how their opportunities can support local employment efforts and a number of specific needs.

  • Broker employment opportunities with individual candidates provided by organisations that help support and prepare individual job seekers, and local businesses with vacancies.

  • Promote good employment practice through encouraging commitments to sign up to initiatives such as Disability Confident, London Living Wage, flexible working, diversity in the workplace, etc.
  • Work with the employer to establish suitable selection and appointment methods (recognising that standard interviews may not always be appropriate, so encouraging work trials, or experience options).
  • Create opportunities for specific target groups of residents (job carving) and seek to increase employment in under-represented groups.
  • Bring the employer’s recruitment efforts closer to the communities in the borough. For example, by encouraging interviews to be held in the community, or by linking the employer up with opportunities to attend careers events and fairs within the local community.
  • Work with the partner team, connecting with their occupiers and offering job brokering recruitment services, supporting them fill vacancies through connection with partner organisations with community caseloads.
