“Unemployment, or limited hours work, can feel very isolating and can chip away at your confidence,” says Frank Newman, Job Club Manager, who received training from national charity Christians Against Poverty.
“And the more it goes on, the worse the effects can be. The problem is that lack of confidence can translate to an unconvincing job interview and put off a prospective employer.”
“Over the eight weeks, we’ll be looking to help people recognise what they are good at, boost their job search and help them connect with local employers in a positive way. We’ve also found that people attending the club find it’s a place where they can relax and make friends with others.”
The Rock Ferry CAP Job Club course runs for eight weeks and is a mixture of group sessions, which include CV writing and interview technique, and one-to-one sessions designed to help members identify strengths, along with areas for further training.
Frank added: “It is really important to remember that you’re not on your own. Come and join our job club and help others to find work as well as yourself.”
Rock Ferry CAP Job Club starts on the 14th January at 9.30 a.m., at St Peter’s Church, St Peter’s Road, Rock Ferry CH42 1PY.
