What jobs are in Waltham Forest?

There are no job shortages in Waltham Forest, no matter the industry. Those in retail, hospitality and services can find the perfect opportunity in the borough. Park rangers and environmental researchers can apply for jobs in the many open spaces and parks. Epping Forest and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park are both part of the borough of Waltham Forest. 

Receptionists, security guards and conservators can find careers at the 491 Gallery, the Changing Room Gallery and the E17 Art Trail. The E17 Art Trail happens every year, which includes open studios, exhibitions and events. Walthamstow Central is mainly known for the eclectic ‘museum’/shop Gods Own Junkyard, a cafe known for its thousands of neon signs. The food scene has developed greatly over the last four years. The mixture of Caribbean, Indian and English food has chefs, kitchen porters and bartenders working twice as hard. 

What is it like living in Waltham Forest?

Waltham Forest drastically changes when driving along the North Circular Road. The borough changes from high-rise apartment blocks and inner-city living in the south to stately homes and gardens in the north. The west of the borough is also lined with reservoirs, something not usually seen in London. Walthamstow Village is the borough’s main food and shopping hub. A semi-detached three-bedroom house can go on sale for around £450,000.
