Surrey Chapel Job Club offers jobless fresh start in 2019

Unemployed people and those in poor work situations are being offered the opportunity to upgrade their job prospects with a free eight-week course run by Surrey Chapel’s CAP Job Club.

Surrey Chapel near Anglia Square in Norwich, is running a CAP Job Club that promises to help people navigate a wide job search and apply skilfully for opportunities, all strengthened by the support of others in a similar situation.
“Unemployment, or limited hours work, can feel very isolating and can chip away at your confidence,” said Dawn Arden (pictured), CAP Job Club Manager for Surrey Chapel, 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 Surrey Chapel 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.
Dawn 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.”
Norwich Surrey Chapel Job Club starts its next course on the Tuesday, January 29, 10am, at the Surrey Chapel 2-6 Bartolph Street, Norwich NR3 1DU, near Anglia Square.
