About the club
Newark Work Club was set up by Nottinghamshire County Council and meets every Thursday (10am-12noon) at Newark Library.
Councillor Keith Girling, Chairman of the Economic Development Committee at Nottinghamshire County Council said: "Your CV is often the first step to getting a job interview - it's the main way of convincing a potential employer that you have the skills, knowledge and attitude that would be an asset to their business.
In a growingly competitive jobs market, it's vital that you get it right.
"Our work clubs are proving to be very popular but we're always keen to welcome new people. As well as providing invaluable advice, we hope that events like the CV workshop will help to attract new people to the Work Club on a regular basis."
Work clubs are free of charge to attend and give people the chance to meet others looking for work, build new contacts, share job hunting experiences and get advice on job searches, job applications, interview techniques, CVs, volunteering and training opportunities.
In addition to the regular sessions, special events like the CV workshop take place from time to time, including guest speakers from local employers, healthy living tips and confidence building workshops.
Newark Work Club is one of six established across Nottinghamshire, with many members going on to secure employment.
All the work clubs are led by volunteers, who are often job seekers themselves or people with experience in working with the unemployed, in training or as an employer.
All volunteers are provided with training for the roles and the County Council is keen to hear from more people interested in the roles across the County.
