Transforming Lives By Creating Opportunities To Thrive!
Employment is the most effective way of giving people independence, financial security and a sense of belonging. Employment4all aims to help people in difficulties and those from disadvantaged groups to get skills, to get jobs and have the same opportunities as others do.
Employment4All will use our employer engagement expertise and recruitment skills to broker connections between government departments, regional and local authorities, third sector providers and our expansive network of employers.
Who We Are
Employment 4 All
Employment 4 All (CIC) – puts people first and is devoted to combating social exclusion. Social exclusion arises when, for a variety of reasons, an individual, or a group, faces difficulties or discrimination in some aspects of their everyday lives, such as gaining employment. We care about all jobseekers (including those with experience of homelessness, offending history, domestic abuse, care) and under-represented groups ( including BAME, LGBT, Women, Ex – servicemen ) to overcome challenges and barriers to gain employment. We want everyone to gain independence, inclusion and control over their lives.
Know More About
Employment 4 All
At Employment 4 All we believe everyone has the right to live a decent and dignified life and an opportunity for rewarding work. We are a social purpose organisation founded from humble beginnings in 2021 to challenge inequality and break down barriers to enable social mobility for as many people as possible.
As Founder/CEO, I had been an Employer Engagement Consultant with a busy, caring Christian Charity and operator of a Foodbank Network, employment support programmes and Women’s safe spaces/ Hubs in The London Borough of Southwark. I supported their wonderful clients who were either self referred, or referrals from the Foodbanks, DWP JobCentre Plus branches, Homeless Winter Shelters, Citizens Advice, Probation Services and the Woman’s Hubs. Mostly, the clients had experience of disadvantage such as poverty, homlessness, disabilities, offending history, long term unemployed, Lone parents and a high proportion of BAME service users. With the help of amazing employer partners we excelled in finding careers and training opportunities with partner organisations such as:
Transport For London, Mitie, Network Rail, Bardwood Support Services, Focus Logistics, Avondale Construction, Lendlease, Durkan Construction, Centerpoint, Poppy’s Funerals, K & M McLoughlin Decorating, The London School of Economics, Bombardier, Cleshar, Flo, Nando, Morgan Stanley, The Royal Academy of Arts, Her Majesty’s Courts, Lloyds Bank Bupa, Healthcare & Catering, Berkley Scott, De Charles Gather & Gather, Harvey Nichols Fortnum & Mason, The HiltonHotels, OMNI Services……..and many more.
I also worked as an Employer Engagement Lead for a large Global Company providing Health and employment services, commissioned by government departments, regional and local authorities and employers.
Employment 4 All was founded as a not for profit social enterprise in the employment sector, drawing from all the employer engagement and recruitment expertise gained from previous experience. We put people at the centre, knowing the right support at the right time can make a huge difference to an individual’s life. We believe in sharing our employer engagement and recruitment expertise to broker connections to support charity and government partners to deliver their mandated responsibilities to create sustainable community legacies and employment. Our services are based on our belief that employers is a core pathway to a better life.

A future where good, meaningful, rewarding, purposeful and dignified employment is accessible to all in society irrespective of life circumstances.
To focus our experience, skills and passion to deliver the highest quality services for the people we support and to improve opportunities and access to sustainable employment.
To source high quality employment, training opportunities and access to complementary services for people with complex needs, challenging life circumstances or other barriers that impact on access to work.
I would like to thank Janine . This lady, influencer, social fighter, creative, adaptable, broad minded and selfless person has helped me over come my barrier to work. Although I had qualifications, being a women at a certain age and been through the Justice System, I found it hard to get work. But along came Janine who used all her networking ability to secure a job for me which I am still 2 years later. She always thinking of new ways to allow anyone to reach their goals no matter what their status in life. Thank you Janine.
When I broke up with my wife, I never imagined I would also not have a home and be on the streets for 5 months. I got a Homeless winter night shelter space in church halls. My support worker at the shelter introduced me to Janine.
She found me an in-house security role at a London University, which meant I didn’t need an SIA Licence. She took me to a pre interview meeting, arranged for Suited and Booted to give me a smart suit, shirts, shoes, socks, ties and a warm smart coat. So I was really confident for the interview. I got the job 2 years ago and I am really happy.
My boss knows my circumstances, but no one else would believe that the man they see in a suit was a rough sleeper. I feel sad when I see the same people I used to know are still on the same streets. But I am so grateful I can afford a roof over my head and money in the bank as savings. I am glad Employment4All will help more homeless people like me.
To be honest if my mum hadn’t asked Janine for help I would be in prison or been knifed. I was 19 and was involved things I am not proud of. Janine enrolled me in a 4 week work placement programme for BAME young people. At the end of the 4 weeks, I got offered an engineering role. I do welding on trains and I have had 3 pay rises since I started. I mostly work nights so my pay is really good. At work we get random drug and alcohol testing, so I don’t touch them, I would never risk my job. I have seen many of the people I used to hang around with go to jail. I feel blessed the way things have gone for me. I have my own shared ownership flat and a nice set of wheels and I still can afford to help buy things for my mum and sister.
In November 2019 I was homeless. I went to the Wednesday club for homeless people at Elephant & Castle where you can have shower and get a hot meal. I was told I was lucky as a woman was coming to help us get jobs. I had a CSCS card and she called a man who said he would give me a chance and I could start on Monday. I am still on the same site with the same company and I work hard and I live in a nice place.
