Job Centre Plus (JCP) continues to submit candidates against LOCOG opportunities and the relationship has been further embedded through the secondment of a JCP employee in LOCOG's Diversity & Inclusion team. LOCOG also have a secondee from Tower Hamlets leading on outreach initiatives in the local communities.
