Step Up is a free service (jointly funded by Trust for London and Walcot Foundation) to support workers stuck in low-paid jobs, zero hour or temporary contracts to progress into better paid permanent employment.

We provide an integrated employment, career and training service designed specifically to equip you with the skills, tools and support to improve your employment conditions; for example:

  • Improve your career through better working conditions, such as moving from zero hours to fixed hours or permanent contract
  • Help you get that promotion you are after, or
  • Help you move into another role where you can earn more money / at least London Living Wage (currently £9.75 per hour)

Our Step-Up program is designed to give you confidence, providing advice and empower you.  You can find out more about our service below:

To qualify for this service you will need:

  • To have been working for at least 1 year
  • Working on average 14 hours per week
