If you pay your staff £11.95 an hour, or are considering it, why not get your business accredited as London Living Wage Employer?
Lambeth offers benefits to companies that are accredited:
- Help to recruit locally for job roles
- Reduction in business rates
Lambeth Council has recently starting delivering its own in-house employment programme for residents and have a pool of local job-seekers ready to be matched with the right employer.
The council can also help to attract additional candidates by advertising vacancies on their Opportunity Lambeth web portal which are circulated weekly to Lambeth’s Job Centres, Youth Hubs, colleges, and various other local organisations, as well as being easily searchable for those job-hunting online. Additionally, Lambeth are able to help to filter applications so that only suitable applicants are sent your way, and in some cases where there is a skills-gap amongst local residents, they can help to cover the cost of training to ensure that recruits have the right skills and qualifications.
Lambeth residents have a lot to offer, and the benefits of recruiting local people are well established. These include:
- Wages spent back into the local economy
- Staff who are knowledgeable about the area, and are connected to the customer base
- Employees who can reliably commute in, and do so via environmentally friendly means such as walking and cycling
