A HOYLAKE church is set to run free job clubs to help get people in West Wirral back to work.

Members of Hoylake Chapel, on Station Road wanted to help equip their local community to find employment in touch economic times.

It underwent specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and is now offering free weekly workshops to boost the job-hunting process for unemployed people by equipping them with the tools, skills and confidence to find work.

Job Club manager Alan Jones, who will be leading the workshops, said: “With more people facing long-term unemployment, there is a real need for a personal service which provides practical and emotional support for people to find work again. CAP Job Clubs is designed do just this.”

Hoylake Chapel is one of more than 90 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.

It will be a weekly course that combines one-to-one consultations, group support and practical sessions that cover topics such as identifying strengths, CV writing and interview techniques.

Mr Jones added: “We hope that we can help people to gain the confidence and skills they need to find employment, particularly for those who may have been out of work for a long period of time.”

The club will run weekly beginning with an open morning on Monday April, 14 at 11am.

The first course begins on April 28 in the small meeting room at Hoylake Chapel.
