What jobs are in Newham?
Large arrays of investment and employment opportunities have become more readily available in Newham over the last ten years. It has quickly become an East London hotspot for retail, dining and slick new city apartments. Thanks to Westfield’s shopping centre opening up, thousands of job opportunities for retail assistants and store consultants have become available. It is also home to the London Aquatics Centre, the London Olympic Stadium and Queen Elizabeth’s Park. The venues host music gigs and festivals, which means engineers, technicians, cleaners and security guards are always needed. 

The London Olympic stadium is now home to West Ham United Football Club, and when home matches are played, there are plenty of jobs available for security and hospitality staff. Newham offers parents a good selection of nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools across the borough. St Edward’s Catholic Primary and Keir Hardie Primary are amongst the best for teachers and administrative staff.  There are no shortages of job opportunities, no matter the skill. Bartenders, plumbers and accountants can find many options in the area. 

What is it like living in Newham?
Newham is a great place to be for students, professionals and families. With endless activities and mouth-watering restaurants, there is something for everyone to do. The area has quite a few open spaces and areas to relax. A three-bedroom semi-detached house can sell for around £360,000.
