Recruit local talent 

LIFT supports employers to diversify their workforce and inject new skills into their business, and can connect you to local talent across four London boroughs.

We offer individualised support with our end-to-end recruitment service, from designing an accessible job description, advertising across our extensive networks, and advising on inclusive recruitment methods, to in-work support for new recruits to help them settle into your team.

LIFT has unique access to residents, with dedicated community outreach as well as active partnerships with employment and community partners, training providers, and schools, colleges and universities.

Register your jobs on the portal



LIFT partners with employers to develop unique paid internships that have successfully led to permanent employment for a high rate of candidates.  

Typically eight to twelve weeks in length, internships allow you to shape a role according to your business needs, and provide interns with the crucial experience to develop their skills and progress their career.

We are currently able to offer SMEs funding to cover 50% of an intern's wages for up to ten weeks. Contact us to learn more!
