New Job Club to give a boost to North Warwickshire’s unemployed.
There’s more help in North Warwickshire to get people back into paid work.
The Volunteer Centre North Warwickshire’s starting two new job clubs offering advice on how to put together a CV and prepare for a job interview.
There’s one on Tuesdays at the Volunteer Centre in White Hart House at the bottom of Long Street 1 – 3pm and the other one is at Dordon Village Hall on Wednesdays 1.30 – 3.30pm.
Volunteer Coordinator Julie Airey is running the one in Atherstone with the help of volunteers. She says “Our job club at White Hart House is based in our new revamped training room. We have the facilities for people to log straight on to the Internet and search for jobs while they are at the club. If they need help with an on line application form we will be on hand to help out.
If people in North Warwickshire are struggling to get on line they can access a programme of basic on line courses through the job club to help them gain the skills needed to help them log on, set up an email account and open an on line job application.
The courses are through UK Online – a national government initiative to get more people using the Internet.
If people’s CV’s are looking a bit empty, they can also find out about volunteering opportunities in the area while they are at the job club.
Julie added “Volunteering looks great on your CV. It shows employers that you are reliable and willing to work as well as helping you keep your skills up to date. The Volunteer Centre has information on a number of opportunities, everything from gardener to receptionist”
The Job Clubs are funded by North Warwickshire Works and will be running for the next six months.
If you think you could benefit from a club, just pop along and someone will be at hand to help you and guide you through the job hunt process.
