When ELBA’s employment and skills programme was established in 2005, its mandate was simple; to engage our member companies in the local unemployment agenda and help disadvantaged people from East London into work. Since then, we have supported over 6,000 people into work, thousands more have benefitted from work experience placements, internships, mentors and training.
Our approach to skills and employment embraces the many dimensions of people’s lives and recognises the critical junctures disadvantaged communities face when considering aspirations, careers and employment.
ELBA’s unique status as a private sector funded regeneration agency, lends itself perfectly to employment and skills agenda. Our membership base provides access to their opportunities, supply chains and strong market knowledge; enabling us to galvanise and drive this crucial work forward.
ELBA’s employment and skills team continues to increase its scope, partnerships, projects and job outputs year on year. This is backed by an excellent framework for delivery, and underpinned by the support of our Skills and Employment board members, a representative group of 27 large active employers of local labour. Funders contributing to the programme’s success span both private and public sector and include Accenture, Barclays, British Land, HSBC, Nomura, State Street and ISS Facilities Services.
As ELBA continues to strengthen its role in supporting corporate partners with responsible recruitment and retention practices, an exciting opportunity has arisen for a new Project Manager to join the team delivering the Parity Project.
Now in its 3rd year, the award winning Parity Project brings the business skills, expertise and experiences of our partners to bear to; support greater labour market engagement and participation among YBM, and raise awareness of and vital access to sustainable career opportunities. Key learning and recommendations from this programme will feed into an extension and expansion proposal along with contributing to stakeholder strategies and research.
