Job Club January Course

In January, Open Door Trust will be running its next 8-week course in person at Oundle Road Baptist Church.

The course is a skills-based course to help people start getting back into work.

Ken Pullen, Job Club Manager, said, “We have been running these Job Clubs for nearly five years and have had amazing feedback about how people have been motivated to start getting back into work. For many, they enter the course with low confidence and low self-worth and leave after eight weeks feeling they have so much more to offer an employer. We work with some amazing partners who can give that extra support through training and other resources we are not able to offer. 

It is about giving each individual the opportunity to really thrive and begin to fulfil their potential back into employment. In the five years we have been running, nearly 50% of those who have attended all the sessions have found work either while working with us or in conjunction with another organisation.”

The sessions will cover areas such as Mindset & Motivation, Obstacles & Barriers, Strengths & Skills, Volunteering & Research, Writing a good CV & Application forms, Interview tips and Getting ready for work.

The sessions will run on a Friday morning between 10am – 11.30am, starting on Friday January 21st. At present, there are some restrictions in place for the building, but you will be kept informed if they change.
