Lambeth Council has bold ambitions for the future of Lambeth’s communities and residents through their Lambeth 2030 Plan ‘Our Future, Our Lambeth. To deliver on these ambitions, they have embarked their transformational One Lambeth Programme ensuring they are ‘connected by purpose,’ in everything they do to deliver excellence.

They are recruiting two Creative Link Workers to the Economy, Culture and Skills team for a full time, 12 month fixed-term contract.


These are new roles created for people passionate about supporting Lambeth’s young people to access pathways into training and employment within the creative and digital industries (CDI), creating a more equitable sector. The two roles will work closely with their youth steering group – the Elevators – and a range of CDI employers to achieve the aims of the Next-Us programme. The roles also come with an excellent training package.
