A host of new job opportunities are available exclusively for residents of the borough – but to access them you must be registered with Barking and Dagenham Council’s job shops.

This week there are trainee engineering roles, driver vacancies and site manager posts on offer, as well as full or part-time openings that need to be filled.

To view the roles, potential applicants must be registered with the borough’s job shops, which can be done for free online or in person at any one of the three venues in Barking and Dagenham.

Candidates must have a valid passport or UK birth certificate, proof of address and their national insurance number to join, and once signed-up a dedicated advisor will match them to suitable vacancies every week.

Councillor Sade Bright, Cabinet Member for Employment, Skills and Aspiration, said: “We are aware that it can be overwhelming and confusing for jobseekers when it comes to finding work.

“This is why we are committed to helping as much as we can and why our job shops offer tailored help and advice, as well as exclusive opportunities for our residents, to help people unlock their potential and find their next career move.”
