New team to deliver CRP’s Recruit London initiative

27th August 2015 / Posted by CRP Team

We had an amazing response to our recent recruitment and after a tough fortnight shortlisting 180 applications and interviewing over 20 excellent candidates with our project partners, we are pleased to announce our outstanding team who will deliver our Recruit London initiative over the coming year.

CJ (Claire James) formally joins CRP as Recruit London Delivery Manager. She will develop and implement strategies to: engage candidates and businesses; prepare candidates for the roles available; and support candidates to sustain work for six months, as well as overseeing project delivery.

Three Workplace Coordinators will be based at project partners: Isabelle Benard at New West End Company; Thomas Wagaine at the Crown Estate; and Benjamin Laryea at our newest partner Capco. They will work with member or tenant businesses to secure vacancies and prepare unemployed Westminster residents for the opportunities available. Workplace Coordinators continue to support the candidate and employer once they start work, to help candidates sustain employment for six months.

Sylvia Kankasa will join as our Specialist Workplace Coordinator, working with businesses to source employment opportunities suitable for candidates who face additional barriers to employment, such as mental health problems or physical disabilities. Nikoletta Gjergji will stay with CRP as Project Support Assistant, helping keep everything smoothly running behind the scenes.

The initiative is supported by Westminster City Council.

New staff will join throughout September. If you have any queries, please contact Elizabeth Harris, Employability Coordinator on or CJ on
