MORE ABOUT US
Our diverse population and workforce is one of our greatest strengths. We are a Stonewall Diversity Champion and have an LGB&T staff forum. Here at Lewisham, we promote equality as an employer, service provider and community leader. We are home to some of the capital’s most exciting and innovative organisations – the Trinity Laban conservatoire of music and contemporary dance, the Albany Theatre in Deptford and the Horniman Museum. Lewisham is undergoing significant regeneration with new town centres, public spaces and schools.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We recognise that our staff are our greatest asset and that’s why we want to make Lewisham a place where they choose to work, and where they are valued and rewarded for the contribution they make. We support employees to achieve their full potential in providing services and responding to community needs. We also look at ways to provide opportunities for others to join our team and therefore offer an extensive, fully paid apprenticeship scheme for those aged 16–24 and are part of the National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP).
