Employment and Training

We have a number of employment and training initiatives to support THH residents into employment or further training. Our partners Go-Train deliver employment training from the Financial Health Centre everyday along with helping residents find employment. They deliver sector specific training covering administration, retail and healthcare to name a few. To find out more on how they can help you call Zara Amjad on 07710 166 821, or email zara.amjad@go-train.co.uk.

 

We also have a project with East London Business Alliance (ELBA) to work with our residents on our THHRIVE employment project. The project supports residents secure entry level employment opportunities in administration, clerical, security and hospitality jobs in and around Canary Wharf and City locations. To find out more on how they can help you call Ian Walker on  0207 068 6995, or email employment@elba-1.org.uk.

 

We run various activities throughout the year in addition to the above, so if you would like to find out more about how to get involved then please call us on 0207 364 2200 or email community.partnerships@thh.org.uk
