Hundreds of jobs will be on offer at Peabody's fifth annual Job Fair taking place on Tuesday 16th June.
The event which is offered by London's oldest housing association is aimed at all Londoners who are unemployed.
Thirty organisations will be attending this this year's fair, offering a number of jobs and apprenticeships in construction, retail, domiciliary and healthcare, administration, hospitality, catering, IT, security and leisure.
Organisations attending include Peabody, Higgins Construction, GLL, Greggs, Interserve, London Care, McDonalds and Mitie, as well as Crossrail, who will be trying to fill as many of their current 300 vacancies in construction, rail and admin.
Peabody's Chief Executive, Steve Howlett said: “Our employment and training teams across London have a wealth of knowledge in building relationships with large organisations who are able to offer jobs to residents of London. Working together with a number of partners we are in the prime position to pool our resources and support both businesses and individuals to make sure the right candidate is recruited.”
