Church to help jobless get work-ready


Poverty busters logo 2A church is set to run free clubs to help people in South Leeds get back into work.

Members of Mosaic Church in Beeston 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 Adrian Byrne, 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.”

Mosaic Church is one of more than 30 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who will be running CAP Job Clubs, as they work together to support 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.

“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” he added.

The club will run every Monday starting from September 30 at 1.00pm at Two Willows Children’s Centre, Cardinal Square, Beeston, LS11 8HS.
