Southwark Works

If you need some extra support to find a job, the Southwark Works team of specialist employment advisers can help you. They provide personal, confidential, one-to-one support for unemployed residents who are experiencing challenges or difficulties in securing a job.


Advisers can help you to create a CV, show you how to undertake effective job searching, how to complete applications, help with your interview techniques, as well as offer information and advice about training and work experience.


If you need training, they can refer you to a local provider, or you may benefit from one of their in-house workshops or courses.


Based in Elephant and Castle, Southwark Works offers a range of employability workshops, including confidence building, customer service, basic IT, CV writing and interview techniques. They also offer access to vocational qualifications such as construction CSCS cards and Food Safety/First Aid etc. All services are fully funded by Southwark Council.


Opening hours are Monday to Friday, 10:00am to noon and 2pm to 4pm. To register, you will need to bring your passport or birth certificate and proof of your Southwark address.
