South London Jobs Fair 22nd June 2017 Coin Street Conference Centre, Lambeth

The London Jobs Fair Through the South London Jobs Fair, we have partnered with Housing Associations and Local Authorities to identify their procurement needs, match those needs with local suppliers to create new jobs, and source the right people to fill those jobs, all under one roof. We would like to thank all of our partners who have supported our programme over the- years to help create opportunities that have driven real social and economic change.

Benefits to Employers & Trainers Our move to Central London and expansion to the East opens up greater opportunities for thousands more job opportunities for jobseekers and trainers across London.

Vacancy Bulletin You can advertise your job and training opportunities via our new bi-weekly Vacancy Bulletin, already with more than 500 subscribers and growing. Widely distributed to our partners and via social media, it has proved to be very popular with jobseekers. Please contact us for further details.

Procurement Opportunities Procurement Opportunities

In Social Housing In Social Housing

A unique opportunity to become closely associated with a cutting edge corporate social responsibility initiative

"Cratus Building Services joined the Procurement Zone of the South London Jobs Fair. We were able to network directly with Procurement personnel from housing associations and local authorities. It's given us some fantastic leads."

Cratus Building Services Managing Director Nick Nemirov

POSH has facilitated hundreds of business opportunities between suppliers to the housing and public sector and procurement representatives from our partner housing associations and local authorities. With the expansion to the rest of London, there will be even bigger opportunities for businesses to sell and raise their profile. Each jobs fair culminates in a networking drinks reception and an annual gala dinner to which our sponsors are allocated tickets. This creates the perfect opportunity to network with customers, suppliers and leading professionals in the public and social housing sector. Guests include our partner housing associations, directors and leads in procurement, community investment and regeneration.

"It was great to be in the same room as so many people who want to drive change, create jobs and support smaller businesses. I look forward to attending next year."

City of London Corporation Responsible Procurement Manager Natalie Evans 7

"Through this event, we're seeing new bidders competing on all our projects and some successfully winning work with us."

"The Gala Dinner was exemplary and provided very effective networking opportunities for us in a relaxed and conducive environment."

We make key introductions, maintain a dialogue in the months following the event, and do everything we can to ensure positive, fruitful and long-lasting relationships between stakeholders.


"It was really good to meet so many influential procurement players in the housing sector."

BSW Heating Business Development Director Les Finucane

"We’ve been a platinum sponsor for the last five years. We’re able to fill our vacancies and profile ourselves to our housing association clients."

Chequers Contracts Services Limited Business Development Director Kate Ward
