Whether you’re currently seeking paid employment or want to develop the skills you need to progress in your chosen career, we can help.

As Inmidtown, we work with 560 businesses in Bloomsbury, Holborn and St Giles. Our Employment Brokerage is designed to help them meet their recruitment needs, wherever possible from within the local community.  That means giving Camden residents not just a route to full and part-time employment, but also the opportunities to gain experience and qualifications with apprenticeships and work placements.

Whether it’s paid or unpaid work, all of our employers are committed to supporting every candidate and ensuring that they gain real value from the experience at every stage.

Could you benefit from our service?
Much of our work is to do with matching suitable candidates with the right job opportunities. There are, however, many other ways in which we can help:
•    If you want to work as part of a team and learn new skills, from task management and meeting deadlines, to effective communication, problem solving and decision making.
•    If you are considering a return to work after a break, you can take the opportunity to polish your skills, sample the job market and bring your work history up to date.
•    If you would like to gain a qualification that’s recognised in your chosen industry, you could consider an apprenticeship or other work-related opportunity.
•    If you want to ease yourself back into the work environment, we can create a flexible programme for you to follow at your own pace. Alternatively, you can use the service to sample different sectors and decide which is for you.

The Employment Brokerage Service is a match-funded venture between inmidtown and Camden Council’s recovery fund.

An apprenticeship allows a worker to develop skills and experience on the job, while gaining nationally recognised qualifications relevant to the needs of the business. Apprentices are employees and, if they are under 19 or in the first year of their apprenticeship, they must be paid a minimum of £2.50 p/h or £95 a week.

Courses for 16–18 year olds are fully funded. Those for other ages vary in price depending on the subject and the institution. Apprentices are normally expected to attend a college or course provider once a week, subject to the demands of the business. Lengths of contract vary from 9 -12 months, depending on the level and frequency of participation.

Work experience
The work experience package can be as flexible as required. For example, we can provide candidates to carry out set tasks on a project basis or to a deadline. Work experience staff are given a programme of activities agreed with the broker. Hours and frequency are based on the employer’s requirements and availability. If requested, we can create a work agenda for the candidate to follow and oversee their induction period. Luncheon vouchers and travel fares are normally offered as a good will gesture.
