CAP Job Club is an initiative from award-winning, international charity, Christians Against Poverty (CAP). CAP began as a debt counselling charity in 1996 and now offers debt help, as well as financial education and support with unemployment and addictions to over 38,000 people every year. CAP Job Clubs provide a place of trust and security to help support motivated jobseekers through some of the trials and challenges of unemployment. CAP Job Clubs equip their members with practical tools to find work and help them expand their work-related networks.
A CAP Job Club is run by trained volunteers, who understand the challenges faced when looking for work. It offers one-to-one coaching, as well as group learning, through an eight-session ‘Steps to Employment’ course that takes members through each step of the job hunting process. Some of the topics covered in the course are;
- the value of volunteering and training
- understanding what employers want
- what makes a good CV
- how to interview clearly and effectively
