At CBC, we partner with Christians Against Poverty to provide a friendly, practical help as you seek employment. It's a relaxed environment with the chance to meet other jobseekers, get support and gain the tools you need to find work.
Being unemployed can be hard to deal with on your own, but being part of one of our Job Club means you face the challenge with other people in similar situations. One in every seven people attending a club has found work. Job Club is open every Friday between 10am and 2pm in Hunter House Coffee Shop next door to Calderwood Baptist Church.
Within Job Club we also run an 8 week course which generally takes place on a Friday for two hours (times will be confirmed with each course but will be between 10am and 2pm). The leaders will offer futher support and look in more detail the ways in which they can help you find employment. Details of our next course will be available soon.
You can register for the Job Club Course today by calling 01355 341055 or complete your details below and we'll call you back!
What's involved in the CAP Job Club?
We know how hard it can be to stay motivated when you are searching for work, especially when you’re on your own. That’s why we’ve designed CAP Job Clubs to be a relaxed place where you’ll meet other people in similar situations, who understand what you are going through, and will support and encourage you along the way.
We will also help to equip you with the practical tools you need to find work. Our eight-session course will walk you through each step of the job hunting process; from identifying your strengths and skills, right through to writing a great CV and learning how to succeed in an interview.
You will have the opportunity to have one-to-one informal support from a dedicated CAP Job Club Coach. They will spend time helping you to set goals, and to identify and tackle any areas you are struggling with.
CAP Job Clubs can also provide you with valuable opportunities to connect with local employers to provide advice, and also offer work experience. Past members have said they found it useful hearing first hand from employers what they are looking for in a candidate, and some have even gone on to find work through these new contacts.
Every week, we are celebrating with people around the UK who are finding employment through our CAP Job Clubs – you could be one of them. Whatever stage you are along the process, why not see how CAP Job Clubs can help you maximise your potential and step into employment?
Our Community Care workers would love to get to know you and your family. If you would like to talk to someone about how we can support you or if you are interested in coming to church, please do get in touch with Thomas McNeil or Karen Dornan. If you are not able to email, you can call us on 01355 247660.
