Harrow Church to help jobless get work-ready

cap_logoA church is set to run free clubs to help people in Harrow get back into work.

Members of St Paul’s Church in South Harrow wanted to help equip their local community to find employment in tough economic times so underwent specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty.

Now they are offering free eight week course to boost the job-hunting process for unemployed people by equipping them with the tools, skills and confidence to find work.

Job Club Manager Ruth Dowsett, who will be leading the workshops, said: “With more people facing long-term employment, there is a real need for a personal service which provides practical and emotional support for people to find work again. CAP Job Clubs is designed to do just this.”

St Paul’s Church is one of more than 30 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who will be running a CAP Job Club, as they work together to positively impact the communities around them.

The CAP Job Club will combine one-to-one consultations, group support and practical sessions. The eight week course will cover topics such as identifying strengths, CV writing and interview techniques.

She added: “We hope that we can help people to gain the confidence and skills they need to find employment, particularly for those who may have been out of work for a long period of time. ”

The eight week course will be run weekly from Monday 13th May at 10am at St Paul’s Church, Corbins Lane, South Harrow.
