The borough’s largest jobs and skills event, Employ Wandsworth 2023, is returning this May.

Dozens of companies from retail, construction, customer service, leisure, hospitality, tourism and other sectors will be at the Wandsworth Civic Suite on Friday 26 May to meet job seekers, who can attend free of charge.

It will be a chance to find out about a wide range of opportunities in Wandsworth at all levels no matter what stage of your career you are at.

There will also be information on training and development, free employability workshops delivered by Google Digital Garage and by South London Partnership on green skills courses offered by South Thames College.

Employ Wandsworth 2023 is organised by Wandsworth Council’s Work Match team. The council’s free jobs service recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and in that time it has supported more than two thousand local people into work.

There will be a chance to meet the Work Match team at Employ Wandsworth and find out how you can be first in line for new job opportunities.

Kemi Akinola, Cabinet member for the voluntary sector, business and culture, said, “We want our residents to get good jobs as close to home as possible. It saves them travel time and transport costs and makes sure it’s local people benefiting from new opportunities.

“Whatever stage you’re at in your career come along, meet potential employees and get advice on taking that next step.”

The event at the Civic Centre on Wandsworth High Street runs from 10am – 3pm. You can beat the queues and reserve your place at

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
