Our aim is to help you find the right job

We are a project under the Mayor’s Skills Academies, funded by the Greater London Authority. We aim to help residents of Southwark, Lambeth and Lewisham find good jobs in the net zero sectors. We promote training, mentoring, work placements, and job opportunities in various fields such as green construction, renewable energy, waste management, and more.

We welcome everyone who is interested in joining the green sectors, but we especially focus on helping diverse groups who face barriers to employment or career progression. These include:

  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people

  • Women

  • Unemployed and economically inactive people

  • People earning less than the London Living Wage

  • Young people aged 16-25

  • Older people aged over 50

A bit about us

We are a proud part of the Mayor’s Skills Academies Programme, a project that aims to create good work for all Londoners as part of the London Recovery Programme. The London Recovery Programme is a city-wide initiative that brings together public, private and voluntary sectors to help London recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and address the long-standing inequalities and challenges that it has exposed or worsened.

The Mayor’s Skills Academies Programme supports Londoners to access high-quality training and employment opportunities in key sectors that are vital for the city’s recovery and future prosperity. These include health and social care, digital, construction, and green.

We are funded by the Mayor of London and we are also part of London South Bank University, a leading institution for applied learning and research that is committed to creating positive social change and addressing real-world challenges.

Workforce Integration Network

The Mayor of London has launched his Inclusive Employer Toolkits, now available on london.gov.uk.

Stark inequalities persist in London’s labour market, with Black and minoritised Londoners significantly underrepresented in key industries and facing higher barriers to entry. In response, the toolkits aim to help employers make meaningful progress on workforce equality and inclusion.

Targeted at employers in hospitality, health, the green economy and the creative industries, the toolkits set out practical guidance and resources, tailored according to organisation size. The toolkits draw on original research with employers and workers to address the specific EDI challenges in each industry. Inside, you will find guidance not only on hiring more diverse staff, but on embedding lasting change across the organisation, so that workers from underrepresented groups are encouraged to stay and progress.

Explore the green toolkit and share with colleagues and leadership to discuss how it could enhance your EDI work.
