About ExCeL London

What is it like to work for ExCeL London

My Team
My Team

Every summer a staff team building day is held. In 2012 this was held in June and over 100 staff attended. Team based activities were facilitated by an external team building organisation. The activities were based around the theme of 'It's A Knockout' with a number of inflatable obstacle courses/competitions, fun athletic activities for everyone to complete in. Teams were chosen at random to ensure a good mix of people across the eight teams competing. Team building events such as this encourage staff to engage with each other across departments, in an informal setting and helps develop stronger relationships in the workplace.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back

ExCeL London operates extensive CRS initiatives which ensure the Company gives something back to the local community and wider world. In relation to local community projects, ExCeL gives around £1m in donations and gifts in kind to the London Borough of Newham which is one of London’s most deprived boroughs. This is supported through key projects: Community Food Enterprise, Newham All Stars Sports Academy (NASSA) and .ExCeL in the Arts Camp. In addition, the company has also supported the community through free meeting space, sponsorship for local groups such as Custom House FC, conducting school tours, providing careers advice, participation in Banking on Talent scheme (2 athletes), running a Young Enterprise scheme, offering tickets/competitions to local residents and supporting the Ascension Eagles. In 2011, ExCeL had a £1.6 billion economic impact for London. This has ultimately supported up to 38,000 jobs in the capital. This is a massive impact on ‘the wider world’ of London, bearing in mind that ExCeL is a privately owned business and not funded in any way by Government or local authorities like many other venues of similar nature.
