Jobs a top priority
Posted on 08 Oct 2021 6:34 PM

As Furlough ends, Ealing Council has launched a manifesto for Good Jobs to support residents facing unemployment due to job losses at Heathrow airport and the associated multiple supply chains in the manufacturing and service industries.  

The plan highlights several key priorities for the council and its partners to achieve and promotes free re-training and affordable access to up-skilling opportunities through the Ealing Work West website. 

Ealing Work West is a comprehensive website that provides a free job board for local businesses to advertise job vacancies. They also run the Apprenticeship network, multiple training schemes, advice lines for benefits and courses to enable people to get back into the workplace.  

 

British Land has launched the free Bright Lights Training Programme for Ealing Broadway. It specifically aims to support young people in the local community to gain local employment, develop new skills, and try hands-on experience. With one to one mentoring and support for six months after completing the course, candidates will be mentally and physically prepared for a post-pandemic future. 

Also new in is the Job Centre Plus at 54 The Broadway, and if people are looking for part-time or temporary employees, don't forget the Make It Ealing Job Board.
