About the trainer:
Clare Ludlow, Director Of Innovation, The Timewise Foundation (encompassing Women Like Us)

Clare started her career in high street recruitment. Her rationale that everyone was employable drew her to early New Deal contracts, where she led on employer engagement. Clare has managed some of the UK’s most successful welfare to work contracts  and has been instrumental in designing and reforming services for people who are furthest from the labour market. Clare spent 3 years in Africa, where she completed a masters in Human Resource Management and Development, while consulting for HR departments across the region. Currently working as Director of Innovation at the Timewise Foundation, Clare continues to work directly with employers as she supports parents to secure careers that fit around their caring responsibilities. She currently leads on the organisation’s in work progression projects and developing innovative approaches to the delivery of effective employability support and successful employer engagement.

The Getting London Ready workshops are funded through the Big Lottery Funds Programme Development Fund. The PDF aims to ensure there is widespread awareness amongst VCSE organisations of the forthcoming Big Lottery ESF programme, to publicise opportunities for the sector to access funding under the programme and to develop productive and sustainable relationships between organisations that will lead to high quality applications and services.

LVSC’s work on employment and skills through the London Employment and Skills Policy Network is made possible through the on-going support of Trust for London.
