Free training is being offered to unemployed Lambeth and Wandsworth residents wanting a foot on the construction industry ladder.
October 26, 2016
Wandsworth and Lambeth residents are being offered five weeks of free training to help them begin a career in the construction industry as part of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership’s wide-ranging local recruitment efforts.
The next entry-level training course places will be available in November for unemployed borough residents aged 19 and over.
The five-week course will provide an introduction to the industry and those who successfully complete it will receive the Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) green card, a must for anyone wanting to work on a major development site.
Course graduates will then be offered a range of help and support to help them secure work on one of the many live construction sites in Nine Elms on the South Bank.
The courses are available through the Lambeth Working and Wandsworth Work Match local recruitment teams.
These two council-run services have already helped hundreds of local people take advantage of the area’s rapidly growing jobs market and can support candidates right through the application process to improve their chances of success.
Current vacancies available through Work Match and Lambeth Working include:
• Apprentice stone masons
• Carpenter’s apprentices
• Hoist driver
• Trainee piling operatives
• CSCS card-holding labourers
For more information Lambeth residents should visit the Lambeth Working website.
Wandsworth residents can find out more by visiting the Wandsworth Work Match website.
