Welcome to Young London Working

Young London Working is a Mayor’s Fund for London project which aims to provide young Londoners with a good quality job. We work proactively with companies that are recruiting and want to engage with unemployed young Londoners. In partnership with a range of local organisations, we carefully screen applicants to help them achieve sustained employment and a route out of poverty.
Since April 2013, Young London Working have worked with over 135 employers and handled over 1,500 high quality opportunities. Over 300 young people have found work through the Young London Working programme so far.


We provide a professional FREE recruitment service to employers wishing to recruit young Londoners
