Recruit Rushden Lakes is The Crown Estates free recruitment and training initiative. It connects local people to jobs and provides training opportunities to help people develop and thrive in employment. This in turn helps our retail and restaurant businesses at Rushden Lakes, together with other local businesses in the area, find and train the staff they need.
Recruit Rushden Lakes is delivered in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and works with employers to understand recruitment needs and match local jobseekers with vacancies. This provides businesses with local people who are skilled and job-ready. The programme has since been successfully established in three further locations around the country delivering over 570 employment outcomes since 2017 – Leicester (Fosse Park) Silverlink (North Tyneside) and The Gate (Newcastle).
Recruit Rushden Lakes is a key feature of The Recovery Through Enterprise Hub which is a physical space at Rushden Lakes delivered in partnership with North Northants Council which supports local people and businesses. The hub provides a range of walk-in services for people wishing to retrain, find employment or explore a business opportunity.
