How you can help
Harleston Information Plus run their own Jobs Club on a Wednesday from 10am-2pm based at the Community Information Centre, 8 Exchange Street.
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.
Over recent months the Club has been funded by Norfolk Community Foundations's Love Norfolk and Shelroy Trust Funds, Suffolk Community Foundation's Suffolk Giving Fund and Mid Suffolk District Council.
