Recruit a local workforce

Our iWork recruitment and brokerage experts can support you develop more flexible opportunities to attract talented local people. If you need to fill a vacancy, we can save you time and money and help you find good candidates for interview.

Helping you recruit the right people for your vacancies

We offer a wealth of experience and local knowledge related to a range of sectors, as well as an expert and professional understanding of the qualities, skills and experience required of candidates.

Simply let us know about your job vacancies and we can do the rest. In particular, we can help you to fill entry-level roles and jobs that require candidates to work flexible hours.

A dedicated member of the team will act as your account manager. They will pre-screen potential candidates in person to save you valuable time and money and to ensure the closest possible matches are submitted to you.

Ways to recruit 

We can also help you to think about different and more accessible ways to recruit your staff - such as work trials - to help you find the best people for the job and ensure you don't miss out on the borough's untapped talent.

The advantages of recruiting locally

Local candidates often have a short commute to work and are able to do unsociable shifts including nights, early mornings, evenings and weekends. We can source candidates from a network of organisations across Islington help you to build a workforce that reflects the local communities in your area.

We can also connect your business to local networking and recruitment opportunities such as business forums, breakfast meetings, job fairs and sector seminars.
