Jobs & business

Below is our full 'Creating jobs, supporting local business' policy paper. 

Key priorities include:

  1. Creating 1,000 new apprenticeships in the borough to help revitalise the local economy and create lasting jobs.
  2. Opening a new ‘Jobs & Enterprise Hub’ offering information and support on jobs and training, as well as providing desk space for start-up businesses.
  3. Offering flexible business rates and provide business loans through the council to help small companies in Southwark get the financial support they need to thrive and grow.
  4. Creating a new “I’m shopping locally” parking scheme and introduce a levy on large supermarkets to revitalise our high streets and show we are on the side of local shops and markets.
  5. Rolling-out free wireless internet across the borough to put Southwark on the digital map.
