Love London Working

Love London Working is a training and employment programme to help unemployed people over the age of 16 into work or to start their own business. No matter how long you’ve been out of a job or what barriers to work you may be facing, such as health, disability or single parenthood, our team can assist you.

With Love London Working we’ll support you all the way from offering training opportunities to financial support, through to developing key skills like IT and work-related training. We also offer individual support with job applications, CV writing and interview practice. Plus, we have a wide variety of jobs and work placements ready for you to apply to across London.

Love London Working is a three-year London-wide programme led by Clarion Housing, in partnership with 9 other housing associations, including Poplar HARCA. However, you don’t need to be a resident to take part. So with a dedicated team ready to help you take those first steps to get back to work, what’s stopping you?

Love London Working is funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) programme for 2014 – 2020. ESF in London is managed by the Greater London Authorities.
