Church to help jobless get work-ready

A church is set to run free clubs to help people in Sheffield get back into work.

Members of Living Waters Christian Fellowship in Darnall wanted to help equip their local community to find employment in tough economic times so underwent specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty.

Now they are offering free weekly workshops to boost the job-hunting process for unemployed people by equipping them with the tools, skills and confidence to find work.

Job Club Manager Brian Coleman, who will be leading the workshops, said: “With more people facing long-term employment, there is a real need for a personal service which provides practical and emotional support for people to find work again. CAP Job Clubs is designed to do just this.”

Living Waters is one of more than 80 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who will be running a CAP Job Club, as they work together to positively impact the communities around them.

CAP Job Clubs will be a weekly course that combines one-to-one consultations, group support and practical sessions that cover topics such as identifying strengths, CV writing and interview techniques.

He added: “We hope that we can help people to gain the confidence and skills they need to find employment, particularly for those who may have been out of work for a long period of time. ”

The club will run weekly starting from January 22nd at 11.00 a.m.at the Living Waters centre, 81 Main Road, Darnall.
