Building Careers in East London

On Friday 29th November, Newham College hosted an event which provided invaluable help for applicants to some of the most exciting engineering apprenticeship opportunities in east London.

To boost the applicants' chances of being employed, the Newham College apprenticeships team held an engineering recruitment day, where they developed applicants’ interview and employability skills, conducted initial interviews and signposted them to other vacancies. Successful candidates went on to secure full interviews.

At Newham College we work hard to ensure that candidates are placed with an employer, and in a role, that is suited to them. The best way to do this is by working closely with our employer networks to fully understand their requirements. We are currently engaged with some of the largest engineering companies in east London and the UK, which is going to result in at least 12 people starting jobs in an industry that will ensure a rewarding career and skills that will last a lifetime.
