Thamesmead Portal

Our Job Club, which runs at The Link Thamesmead, allows you to search for your first job, or a better one, at our learning centre. Please see below opening times.

Just drop in to freely access our computers on which you can write your CV/cover letters and search for jobs online. The club also has photocopiers, printers and phones to aid your job search and you canaccess all the tips and tools needed to complete your job search to the best of your ability.

At the club, advisors in our qualified employment team will help you to source appropriate vacancies that fit your skills, experience and desired roles, and review your progress every four weeks to help keep you on track. They’ll also support you to find work or an apprenticeship by working with local partners, when necessary, to source specialist support.

Keeping a record of your job search will help you to see the progress of each application. On average, the people who use our service find a job or apprenticeship within three to six months of starting their search. Our Employment team also stays in touch with you to help you settle into your new position after you’ve started.

Remember, when you do secure employment you’ll be entitled to claim your £20 voucher on receipt of a completed job outcome form and supporting evidence.

If you’re interested, you can also use The Link to practise for the CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) cards, which prove that workers on construction sites have the required training and qualifications.
