A three session course that helps you look after your money better and learn how to budget, spend and save well.
Anyone can join the club, people of all faiths or none, and the Job club offers:
* an 8 week course on confidence as a job seeker, including sessions on setting goals, gaining self-worth, interview practice.
* one to one coaching session for job seekers to have a supporting person listen to their needs and help them reflect on how they are progressing
* a community of folk who are looking for employment and can understand the issues surrounding this in today’s life.
Our next Job Club Course begins on May 12th at 10am ,but until it begins you can drop in every Thursday for support. in job seeking. since we began in January 2015 we’ve had 70 people on the course and 15 are now in employment, others are volunteering or gaining skills to get full time employment, and we’d say that everyone who attended the course felt valued and encouraged.
If you would like to know more or help out, please contact Vicar Peter on 07944056335.
