Helping hand for unemployed young people

A new club offering young people in Blaby district a helping hand into the world of work kicks off this January.

The Job Club will take place at Braunstone Town Library on Tuesdays from 11am until 1pm, starting January 15.

It aims to give 16 – 25 year olds who are not currently in education, employment or training a boost towards planning their career path, writing CVs, job and college applications, getting help with interview skills and building confidence.

There will also be the chance to access a host of other services such as housing and residential support.

Councillor Jackie Dickinson, portfolio holder for Policy, Partnerships and Health Improvement, said:

“It is tough trying to get a job nowadays if you are young, even more so if you have low skills and lack work experience.

“The Job Club offers one-to-one support to help young people step off the negative path and help them to move forward in a positive way to achieve a hopeful future.”

The Job Club is a free service and is a development through Integrated Youth Support Services, delivered by Leicestershire County Council’s Youth Service and Adult Learning Services and Prospects, in partnership with Blaby District Council and SouthLeicestershireCollege.
