CAP Job Club
Dealing with unemployment can be challenging when you’re on your own, but our CAP Job Clubs unite people who share similar experiences, making the journey more manageable and supportive.
Job Club is a place to meet with other job seekers, share tips and tricks on CVs, applications, interviews and much more in a relaxed and supportive setting.
Our CAP Job Club meets every week for eight-weeks to support you on your journey. During the program, you’ll gain invaluable tools for your job search, from writing an excellent CV to improving your interview skills.
They are led by dedicated volunteers who understand the difficulties you have while job hunting and really want you to succeed!. As well as the group’s support, your CAP Job Club Coach will give time to help you reach your individual goals.
We understand that being unemployed can negatively affect your well-being. That’s why during our sessions, we’ll also focus on boosting your confidence and self-esteem.
Our advisors are experienced in helping people with various disabilities and health concerns. We work closely with Jeremiah Advice and Guidance to make sure any job offers won’t negatively impact your benefits.
We use our dedicated Facebook page to share details of local job vacancies. You can check it out and follow us by clicking on the CAP Job Club logo
1-2-1 Job Help
We understand that finding a job can be scary, whether you’re looking for your first job, have been out of work for a long time or want to change what you are currently doing.
As part of the Jeremiah Project, we offer free individual support to help people get ready for work or find new job opportunities. Our Employability Advisor, Sandra, has 11 years of experience in assisting people with tasks including writing or updating CV’s, searching for jobs, applying for jobs and interview techniques.
Sandra works closely with individuals to help them explore different job options based on their skills and interests, sometimes suggesting careers they hadn’t thought about before.
Sometimes, you might want some training to boost your confidence, earn a certificate in something specific, or simply show that you’ve spent some time gaining new skills or knowledge. If you’re not confident on using a computer or don’t have access to the internet, we can help by providing basic training which can be useful in many different jobs.
We’ve also partnered up with Digital College and are pleased to offer a variety of short courses that can lead to qualifications highly regarded by employers. Many of these courses are available at no cost, but for others there may be a charge.
- Level 2 Food Hygiene and Safety Certificate
- Health and Safety Awareness for Employees
- An Awareness of Mental Wellbeing in the Workplace
- Manual Handling
If you have been out of work for a while, you may struggle to provide an employer reference. We can offer work experience here at our building, The Well. Depending on what opportunities are available, there might be a chance to volunteer in The Well Café or Farnworth & Kearsley Foodbank. Through volunteering you so that you can gain skills and confidence, meet and socialise with other people and help return to a work routine. We can then provide you with a reference that is like having someone vouch for you when you apply for a job. It shows that you can do the work and that you’re a reliable and good person to have on the team. This makes employers more likely to hire you.
