Are you looking for some high-quality paid work experience?

Hackney Council are working with employers and partners across the borough to create exciting work placements for local young people aged 16-24 or those residents with a disability or health condition. Work placements are a great way to get an insight into a career you might be considering, while making useful contacts and getting paid experience to put on your CV. Hackney 100 has a particular focus on placements in the tech, digital, creative and construction industries. We also have opportunities at Hackney Council.

Changes to Hackney Works Services during Covid-19

The Hackney Works offices are closed - we will keep these web pages updated with job/training information. Our employment advisors are providing telephone support, however, please bear with us – our priority is to support vulnerable clients, those facing a redundancy situation and those interested in volunteering/jobs/careers in key worker roles.

For those impacted by COVID-19, details of further support can be found here: Coronavirus support You can also call Hackney's Coronavirus helpline: 020 8356 3111
