External shot of the Employment Academy

The Employment Academy is an initiative dedicated to helping people in South London find work.

It is a multi-agency, community-focused hub for employment services, developed by Thames Reach, a well-established charity that has worked with people in South London for the past thirty years.

The Employment Academy was funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) and by Thames Reach itself, which owns the building. It is also backed by both Southwark and Lambeth councils.

The building was originally built in 1904 and used until recently as offices by Southwark Council.

The Employment Academy offers a wide range of services to the local community, and provides support and training for the long-term unemployed to help them develop the skills and confidence to find jobs. It has developed a reputation for being a rich source of competent, well-trained employees, and for having strong links with a range of key employers across the capital.
