St Luke’s Centre: ‘Call us if you’re out of work’
PUBLISHED: 09:00 10 July 2016
St Luke’s Community Centre is urging unemployed people from the areas nearby to get themselves down to its job club.
The centre, in Central Street, runs its club every Tuesday for people who need help getting their careers off the ground.
Now business engagement manager John Garces wants more people to sign up.
“We are here to help,” he told the Gazette. “Our mission, and ambition, is to help as many people as possible to get a job.
“Our job club provides a nice, relaxing environment for anyone with any queries, so if you need any help just ask.”
The club has been running since 2009, and offers confidence building classes, interview training and CV building workshops as part of its service.
Each of these is run by volunteers from nearby businesses, with companies such as Allianz, Hogan Lovells law firm and Lloyds Bank helping the cause.
“The confidence building in particular is important, because so many unemployed people are out of work for a very long time, and it really affects them,” said John.
“We’ll do all we can to help but, if for some reason we can’t, we’re in touch with several organisations who we can refer people to.”
The Job Club is run every Tuesday from 2-4 at St Luke’s community centre. For more information, visit slpt.org.uk
