Lambeth is a Central London district with a population of around 24,000 and lies within the wider Borough of Lambeth. Situated towards the north of the borough where a large concentration of Lambeth jobs are found, the district is a young and prosperous place to work and live. Communing in Lambeth is helped by a range of public transport options, including tram, metro and underground services. Lambeth jobs are strongest in the public sector, with positions in Health and Social work accounting for a significant proportion of the local workforce. The district's position bordering The Thames and within touching distance of Westminster means rent prices will average around £2,049, according to home.co.uk.
Lambeth Job Opportunities
Lambeth jobs are spread out over a wide variety of sectors, but healthcare jobs command the largest share of the workforce. This is due to the wide variety of opportunities at institutions such as King's College Hospital, and Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospital, as well as a range of other support services. Those looking for a position in healthcare will need to showcase their organisational, leadership and customer service skills. Other public organisations include Lambeth Council and Lambeth College, who often advertise for finance, IT and public administration jobs. In the private sector, positions in information and communications are notably strong thanks to a cluster of local businesses such as:
- ITV (TV network)
- IBM (technology corporation)
- Capgemini (IT consultancy)
