Unemployed people in Guildford can once again benefit with practical advice and help from a job club run by local churches.

Volunteers from Guildford Baptist Church, Christ Church and the Guildford Community Church have undergone training with charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) to run the weekly club.

It starts again on Tuesday May 7, at 10am at Guildford Baprtist Church in Millmead, and follows on from the job club that ran there from January to March this year.

Guildford Baptist Church’s CAP Job Club Manager, Nick Walden, said: “We really wanted to make a practical contribution to the community and we thought by running a job club that was the best way. Everyone who comes on the course, whether you’ve been out of work for a while or maybe you want to change jobs but aren’t sure how to start – this course is for you.”

He added that Guildford Baptist Church’s job club is one of around 150 in the UK that help hundreds of people find work each year.

The eight-week course provides jobseekers with essential skills, such as CV writing, interview technique and the value of volunteering.

At the heart of the course is a supportive peer-to-peer group where course members can share their experiences, struggles and advice. In addition, each is given one-to-one coaching to develop their strengths and identify other opportunities, such as volunteering or additional training.

Nick added: “Our job club is a warm, friendly and relaxed environment. Let us help you take your first steps into employment and a job you’ll enjoy.”
