Shard Project - Section 106

The London borough of Southwark has some of the highest levels of unemployment in the capital, despite huge business investments in the area. To combat this, the GoodPeople Connect project is working with prestigious employers in and around The Shard, to help them identify and recruit talented, yet unemployed residents. Thanks to The Shard’s investment into the programme, we can offer this service for free.

With a Section 106 Shard target of 300 candidates placed and sustained in employment for 6 months- we are on target to over achieving this figure. We have assisted over 440 Southwark unemployed into work within the Shard and the wider London business community, working on ensuring more than 300 sustain minimum of 6 months employment. 

As a major development in the Southwark borough, we aim to continue working with The Shard to develop the  iconic buildings engagement within the Southwark community. The variety of people, professionals and businesses within The Shard, offers an abundance in experience, knowledge, and influence to positively influence on peoples lives.
