Billingshurst Unemployed To Benefit From Job Club

Billingshurst Unemployed To Benefit From Job Club

Horsham District Council are pleased to announce that after a short break, the Billingshurst Work Information and Support Hub (WISH) restarted on Wednesday 18 May at 10am in Billingshurst Library. Facilitated by the council, managed by Billingshurst Community Partnership and funded by Think Family and Horsham Job Centre Plus, the WISH Job Club has helped over 30 people from Billingshurst  and surrounding areas to find work since it was initially launched in June 2015.

The Work Information and Support Hub (WISH) is a free job club to help unemployed people gain vital employability skills and knowledge that employers are seeking.

The club aims to provide friendly and practical advice on how to overcome concerns about finding work and will provide the opportunity to meet fellow job hunters in a relaxed atmosphere. WISH provides a series of weekly sessions based locally, helping people with CV writing, applying for jobs and how to create a good impression at job interviews.

The Job Club is available to those who are long term unemployed, returning to work after a career break or have recently been made redundant.

The WISH Job Club is another employment project organised and provided by Horsham District Council and is operated in partnership with Billingshurst Community Partnership and Horsham Job Centre Plus. It receives a small amount of funding from the Department of Work and Pensions and the Think Family initiative also fund some of the running costs for this initiative.

If you are unemployed, living in the Billingshurst area and think that you could benefit from this initiative, call the Work Information and Support Hub Job Club to find out more details on 07500 450458 or email bhurst.community@btinternet.com.
