A new job club where jobseekers can get advice and support on finding work is being launched in Ashington.

The Job Club will give people in Ashington the chance to meet others looking for work, build new contacts, share job hunting experiences and get advice on interview techniques, CVs and even volunteering opportunities.

Kath Falcus, who is driving the setting up of the Job Club, said: “Research shows that the best way to find another job is through friends, family or social networks, which is why it is so vital to have a Job Club in Ashington.

During each session, we will help people to look for work by assisting in the preparation of CVs and cover letters, offering guidance on using the internet to look for opportunities in the area and provide advice on the recruitment process.

Our Job Club is unique in that as well as providing public internet access, we also offer one to one support which is vital for people with poor literacy and IT skills”

The Job Club will meet on Wednesdays from 10am to noon and 1pm to 3pm at Ashington Life Centre, The Old Police Station, Station Road, Ashington.
