Lutterworth Job Club to become regular event following successful trials

Rugby Editorial 20th Oct, 2021   0

JOB-SEEKERS in Lutterworth can get regular support at a drop-in Job Club, which is to become a regular event following successful trials.

Over the last month, Harborough District Council’s (HDC) Economic Development team and the National Careers Service hosted two trial Job Clubs in the town, where unemployment is slightly higher than in other parts of the district.

The Job Club will now take place on the first Friday of every month from 12.30pm to 4pm at The Wycliffe Rooms in Lutterworth town centre.

The sessions will offer support with CV and interview skills, job searching and applying techniques, access to training and qualifications, careers advice, and support with benefit claims.

HDC Leader Coun Phil King said: “While the unemployment rate has fallen in September 2021, the number of people claiming universal credit and job seekers allowance has increased by 150 per cent since September 2019.

“We’re very keen to make the Lutterworth Job Club a regular event for anyone, whether they are unemployed, employed and looking for new opportunities, a school leaver or graduate, on universal credit or not.”
