Opportunities with BXC

Would you like to be a part of our programme? From jobs to community projects, we want to make it easier for you to help us build a legacy in Brent Cross and Cricklewood.

The Brent Cross Cricklewood is the biggest redevelopment and growth programme Barnet Council has ever undertaken, and is amongst the most ambitious across Europe. But the project is not just about new homes and facilities, but about leaving a positive legacy for existing communities. In addition to thousands of jobs building the new park town and Brent Cross West, across the programme we’ll see 27,000 new jobs created in the future. And where possible we hope at least 20% of the people working across the site are local residents of Barnet or the neighbouring boroughs of Brent and Camden.

One person we’ve already supported Tony Sebastiao. Tony was homeless when he met our teams, but he has since been helped to get his ID and UK settlement papers, been found a job building the new station, and a bespoke training programme for him is being devised. Read his story here.

Apprenticeships are a key part of our commitment to the legacy of the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme. We want to leave a positive legacy of upskilling our young people, meaning they can build their own futures whilst also building a new community.

You can read more about the apprentices who work on the project here.

If you are interested in finding out more about apprenticeships with us, contact Cali Ibrahim on skills@barnet.gov.uk

And our partners Galldris are recruiting for apprentices to join their team as groundworkers on the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme. No qualifications are needed, and Galldris will help the new recruits with the training and qualifying for their CSCS card. Applicants must be aged 18+. If you are interested in finding out more, visit www.galldris.co.uk/apprenticeship-programme

Women into construction with BXC

We want to challenge the under-representation of women in construction – an industry in which females are outnumbered 7:1 in the UK – by encouraging more of them into careers in the industry.

You can read about some of the female leaders working across the project here.
