Mid-Norfolk job club meets community needs

Job Club2013: Ashill Job Club, held at The Stables, The Fountain of Life Church, is waging war on the misery of unemployment by helping their community to become work ready.

The CAP Job Club is a free weekly drop-in group that combines one-to-one consultations, group support and practical sessions that cover topics such as identifying strengths, CV writing and interview techniques.

Two newly trained Job Coaches Joy Fernando and Phil Tompkins have completed their training to join Job Club Manager, David Bignell to deliver training sessions. 

Job club manager David Bignell said: “When it comes to job hunting, having the right tools and techniques up your sleeve can really improve your chances of finding work. We provide a personal service which gives people both practical and emotional support.” David won a “Best in Norfolk” award when an independent retailer and, as a Member of the Chartered Institute of Business Consultants has, over recent years, assisted well over a thousand start-up businesses to become successful.  David added: “With more people facing long-term unemployment our aim is to help people gain the confidence and skills they need to get back into work again. This service is freely given and has immense value for those who attend.”

A “successful” Ashill Job Club client wrote; “ What I found most useful about the Job Club (apart from meeting some really nice people) was gaining a much better understanding of what employers might be looking for and, of course, getting a much improved CV.  I am continuing to look for better paid work and I am more at ease with the whole process thanks to the knowledge I gained at the Job Club”.

The Fountain of Life is one of over 50 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK running a CAP Job Club.  All have been trained by UK charity Christians Against Poverty at their Head Office in Bradford and are running the clubs to help the local community best handle the current economic downturn by assisting local people improve their employability.
