Working towards work
At the Manchester Justlife centre we run a weekly job club, helping people look for employment, as well as providing one to one CV and jobsearch support. Over the past 2 months 13 new people have registered for jobsearch support. We have been able to help 2 people secure job placements and 1 person has moved into employment.
We work in partnership with Eastlands Homes employment adviser, Jobcentre Plus, Business in the Community and other employment support services to ensure the Justlife clients are well supported in moving towards work.
Sarah has been coming along to Job club for the past 6 weeks. She said: “I want to get a job, I hate not working. At Justlife the support is really good. Alex has helped me revamp my CV, sorted me out some covering letters and she just helps me get everything perfect on my applications. I have even got a job interview tomorrow and they have helped to find me some smart clothes to wear. It is better than anywhere else.”
The job club runs every Monday afternoon: 1.30pm-3.30pm
