London job fair to help black men get into construction

OPPORTUNITIES: The event is hosted by the Mayor of London's Workforce Integration Network (WIN)

AN EVENT from the Workforce Integration Network (WIN) is to take place, providing young black men between 16 to 24 years old the opportunity to learn more about the construction/engineering sector.

The WIN Construction Jobs Fair is part the Mayor’s Workforce Integration Network (WIN), helping under-represented groups improve their employment prospects.

The event, which takes place on Monday 15 April will showcase jobs, apprenticeships and work experience opportunities from leading construction companies including Laing O’Rourke, Morgan Sindall, Lendlease, Wates and many more.

The free event will be opened by The Deputy Mayor, Debbie Bernard-Weekes, as young black men will have the opportunity to find live apprenticeships, jobs, work experience and more in the thriving construction sector.

The WIN programme aims to support young black men into living wage employment in London. It will focus primarly on the construction and digital sectors, and will engage other sectors and groups over time.

Additionally, the programme aims to engage with employers from key growth sectors with low inclusion of underrepresented groups; improve pathways into employment for young black men by partnering with Moving on Up (MOU), an existing initiative led by Trust for London; advocate for coordinated action in London to support higher rates of BAME Londoners entering the workforce; commission research to improve the quality of the data on sector-specific BAME employment rates; and develop, publish and promote a best practice guide for employers.
