WISH employment support clubs
WISH clubs are employment support hubs run for the Council by SETAS and effectively provide the same type of support as the Council’s Journey to Work programme, but in a more social and group setting. The good thing about WISH is that anyone aged 18 and over can drop in to discuss their situation, in confidence, and be assured of a warm and sensitive reception from coordinator Richard Brooks and his team. WISH clubs offer:
- Group work sessions, such as CV and cover-letting writing and application form advice
- Connections with local employers and signposting to services across the district
- Workshops on interview skills, confidence and motivation building
- Free access to computers and internet, with on-hand support for those who need it
- Specialist one-to-one advice and guidance if required
