LBA’s employment and skills team has an impressive track record of helping local people in east London to find work within City and Canary Warf companies. With unparalleled knowledge of the local labour market, our employment programmes are designed and delivered in partnership with leading community job brokers and member companies.
ELBA’s unique status, as membership network of some of the region’s largest private and public employers, lends itself perfectly to the skills and employment agenda. We are able to access opportunities not readily available to those from disadvantaged backgrounds; challenging the status quo of recruitment practices and creating careers and social mobility for local people.
Our activities aim to enhance and support the inclusion, social mobility and diversity practices of ELBA members and local employers. Using our extensive network of community partners, our highly experience employment and skills team is able to source a wide pool of talented people to suit a range of organisations and job opportunities. A dedicated account manager will work with you to deliver a professional service tailored to meet your business needs.
