Support for Carillion Apprentices and Employees

carillion logo

The BuildLondon team are conscious of the huge impact that the recent announcement of Carillion going into liquidation will have on a significant number of apprentices and thousands of other employees and their families.

As a regional partnership initiative with the Department for Work and Pensions in London, Essex and the Home Counties, we are keen to do all we can to support those affected living in these areas.

We recognise the importance of retaining the skills and experience of Carillion staff working within the construction industry, which in turn will help to ensure the industry continues to thrive and deliver the infrastructure and housing projects so desperately needed across the UK.

Our Mission

We are not a commercial employment agency. Our mission is simple – we are here to help connect local people to major construction projects across London and the South East. We do this by working in partnership with major client organisations such as Tideway, Crossrail and Transport for London and supporting their supply chain contractors to recruit locally.

It is our aim to improve visibility of and access to opportunities arising from major projects, helping contractors to promote and recruit locally and across the region.

Opportunities across London and the South East

By registering with us, you will receive up to date information of the latest vacancies within the construction industry in your local area and across London and the South East.

There are absolutely no charges attached to this support, as the service is provided by BuildLondon in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions.

If you are an employee of Carillion, working in a construction or construction related role, and interested in registering with us, simply follow this link and complete the on-line form;

We look forward to hearing from you.
