Jobs Club



Harleston Jobs Club - open every Wednesday 10am-2pm.


Harleston Information Plus are pleased to announce we have been awarded funding from the European Social Fund LIFT Jobs programme to continue to run our weekly Jobs Club for a further two years.  In addition to this, for the first time, we are able to extend our service to surrounding villages in Norfolk and north Suffolk.  We will be going out to offer pop up Jobs Clubs in villages for those who can’t make it into Harleston.  Please view our Events page for details of our pop ups.  

We are also going to be offering a variety of training courses, these are likely to be First Aid, Food Hygiene, Retail/Customer Service and basic IT.

Please visit the Jobs Club to express your interest in participating in our newly funded courses and to see how we can help you move into employment.

 


The Jobs Club is run by Lucy Marjoram, Jobs Club Co-ordinator and has a team of volunteers who are on hand to offer support and help with job searching needs.  


The Jobs Club, originally set up in 2009, is friendly and informal, where jobseekers can drop in, chat, find out about local employment opportunities and access the internet and the latest apps. 


It offers a range of free and confidential services in order to help jobseekers on their way to employment, these include:


  • Help with writing a CV, covering letters and job applications
  • Tips and advice for job interviews 
  • Information on volunteering opportunities and work experience 
  • Information on colleges and apprenticeships
  • Local training and courses 
  • 1:1 careers advice 
  • Business start up information 


In addition to this, 1:1 IT help is also available where jobseekers can learn how to carry out job searches, set up an email account and learn how to use Microsoft Office.  The help is tailor made for the jobseeker depending on their level of knowledge and what it is they wish to learn.


The Jobs Club is open every Wednesday from 10am-2pm and everyone is welcome.
