The Council’s Work Clubs are held on a weekly basis at selected libraries throughout Nottinghamshire.
The Work Clubs are open to anyone looking for work and are voluntary to attend. The clubs give people the chance to meet others looking for work, build new contacts, share job hunting experiences and get advice on job searches, applications, interview techniques, CVs and even volunteering opportunities.
Special events are held regularly at the work clubs including sessions from employers talking about what they look for in job applicants, CV writing and confidence building workshops.
Local businesses are being encouraged to support work clubs by offering work experience or mentoring opportunities to attendees and making them aware of vacancies within their organisations.
