Barnoldswick residents are being given another chance to improve their employability with a popular free course run by a local church.

Members of Majestic Church in Barnoldswick, who have been trained by UK charity Christians Against Poverty, are again running the club aimed at helping the local community boost their prospects of securing a job.

Job club manager Suzanne Hawthorn, who will be leading the CAP Job Club sessions, said: “When it comes to job hunting, having the right tools and techniques up your sleeve can really improve your chances in finding work. We provide a personal service which gives people both practical and emotional support.”

Majestic Church is one of more than 160 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who will be running a CAP Job Club, as they work together to positively impact the communities around them.

CAP Job Clubs works with individuals to meet their personal needs. Sessions cover practical topics such as identifying strengths, CV writing and interview techniques.

Suzanne added: “With more people facing long-term unemployment, we hope to help people gain the confidence and skills they need to get back into work again.”

The next course takes place at the Majestic Church Centre (entrance on Ellis Street facing the town square), starting at 9-45am on Thursday, September 22nd.
