During the Covid 19 pandemic, the Southwark Works office on the Walworth Road is closed but the Southwark Works network of providers is continuing to support our clients and Southwark residents remotely.
Our jobs board is constantly being updated – but things are moving very quickly – so we are trying to put up new information and take down information that is no longer relevant as fast as we can.
We are putting information on this website to help you with job searching, your CV, job interviews, etc and online training, ranging from Functional Skills (English, Maths and Digital) to employability and vocational skills – e.g. CSCS. Go to the new Online Resources tab on the website to find out more.
We are very happy to help anyone who is healthy and looking for a job or to help you find some training. If you have an existing named Adviser then please feel free to contact them – all the Southwark Works partner organisations are here to help you with whatever you need. If you don’t have a personal Adviser, there are contacts at the bottom of this message.
If you are trying to make a claim for Universal Credit, please be patient and keep trying. The DWP is trying to manage the huge rise in online claims.
If you are in a crisis situation, there is information on the Council’s website: https://www.southwark.gov.uk/health-and-wellbeing/public-health/for-the-public/coronavirus
And Government information can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
If you would like to speak to us at Southwark Works, here are some people you can contact to find out more:
If you ring the office number, 020 7740 8200 it will get diverted to one of our mobile numbers – just wait for a few rings.
We do wish everyone well and hope you remain healthy during this unprecedented situation. Please stay safe and do feel free to keep in touch.
