Employment Support for Residents & Businesses

The Council’s Rapid Employment Support Service has been set up to support residents affected by Covid-19. It is for those who may have recently lost their jobs, are at risk of being made redundant or are self-employed and struggling.

To date, over a 100 residents have engaged with the service, securing employment within the sectors of security, transport, care homes and hospitals. The team continue to support residents with employability, upskilling and mentoring.

The Service has also been supporting over 20 local businesses to help fulfil their recruitment needs, providing opportunities for residents as well as filling vital vacancies ensuring key services remain unaffected despite the pandemic.

If you are a business requiring support to fill vacancies, please contact stepsintowork@walthamforest.gov.uk. We aim to respond within 48 hours.
