GoodPeople Connect is an innovative approach to recruitment. It connects unemployed local residents to employers in major commercial developments in London.
GoodPeople Connect’s core project is Shard Careers, based around the Shard in Southwark, London. Launched in 2013 through a partnership between GoodPeople, SELLAR Property Group and Southwark Council the project seeks to address the challenge of 17,700 Southwark residents currently out of work.
GoodPeople Connect’s overall mission is to prove how councils and commercial developers can work together to create meaningful, sustainable social impact for the local community. The approach is designed to help numerous talented, yet unemployed individuals into the labour market, whilst adding value to employers by giving them access to a motivated, immediately available, local workforce.
