Find work or job training this New Year with GLLaB

Published Thursday, 04 January 2018

Residents can kick start their search on board the community outreach bus.

The Greenwich Local Labour and Business (GLLaB) bus will be touring the borough offering tailored support for out of work residents to get the skills and experience they need to get into permanent employment.

The GLLaB outreach bus is part of the Royal Borough of Greenwich's commitment to ensuring all residents have access to employment, training or apprenticeship opportunities.

People of all ages can get help with their job search, including preparing CVs and interview techniques. They'll also be able to find out about job opportunities with local employers.

GLLaB staff will be on board to help at all the locations. Additional information on Business Start–ups and Adult and Community Learning Courses will also be available.
