The Nescot Job Club launch took place on Friday 10th February, with the Rt Hon Chris Grayling, Epsom and Ewell Member of Parliament and Minister of State in the Department for Work and Pensions and Nescot Principal, Sunaina Mann, in attendance, along with local business senior management, councillors and officials.
The aim of the job club, one of 2.500 in the country, is to help job seekers back into employment, offering free expert advice and training in a social and informal setting. The Job Club offers support with:
• CV writing
• Access to computers and email
• Jobsearch and applications
• Interview Techniques
• Self-employment Advice
• Careers Training Advice & Guidance
• Opportunities for Apprenticeships
• Vacancy Matching
Speaking at the launch, Chris Grayling said, “The aim of Job Clubs and Work Clubs is to give unemployed people of all ages and backgrounds a place to go to share their experiences, to receive practical help and to give them a sense that they are not alone. I'm really pleased that Nescot has offered to host a club locally, and the aim now is to get local employers and other organisations involved to give both practical help to people in their job search and also to help them find the right opportunities to get into work.”
Nescot’s Job Club will run every Thursday from 9.30am – 12.00pm. The club will receive support from visiting speakers from employers and external agencies as well as experienced staff, who’ll be on hand to help.
