The Council is working with key local partners including Jobcentre Plus, employment and skills providers and employers to help more people into sustainable work. Over the next 10 years Barking and Dagenham Council and its partners aim to stimulate the creation of 10,000 new jobs in the borough and to equip local people with the skills needed to compete for them.

The borough is well connected by transport links to areas with a huge number of jobs, including Canary Wharf and the City, Stratford and the new London Gateway Port development in Thurrock.

Work Clubs 

Children Centres in Barking and Dagenham are now providing Work Clubs. Their aim is to help people make the most of local knowledge and resources, to help unemployed people in their communities gain employment.
