Are you looking for a job? Do you think a Work Club could help you?

Research shows that the best way to find another job is through friends, family or social networks.

Work clubs give people the chance to meet others looking for work, build new contacts, share job hunting experiences and get advice on interview techniques, CVs and even volunteering opportunities.

Nottinghamshire Work Clubs are free and attendance is voluntary.

We launched our first Work Club in Worksop in January and it meets every Thursday in Worksop library. Currently the club is supported by Nottinghamshire County Council and Enable but as it becomes established the club will become self-sufficient.

Nottinghamshire Work Clubs are being delivered on a self-help basis; this is an entirely new approach and one that aims to put the running of the club in the hands of the members.


Councillor Keith Girling, Deputy Cabinet Member for Culture and Community at Nottinghamshire County Council says:

"I have personal experience of what, at the time, was called a job club and it helped me to focus on what I needed to do to get a job and helped me with the practical aspects of searching for work.

The club was pretty much run by its members and helped lots of people back into work and that's what we're trying to do now."
