Residents of Falmouth and Penryn are to get a free job club to help them negotiate job hunting during the pandemic.

Emmanuel Baptist Church Falmouth has been running the CAP Job Club, in partnership with Christians Against Poverty (CAP), for the last two years.

Glyn Lumley, local CAP Job Club Manager said: "The past year has been very challenging for all of us.

"Our concern is not really knowing what the outcome will be as we come out of the latest lockdown and the furlough scheme runs down.

"We’ve all got different challenges but for unemployed people, taking these steps into employment can be a real confidence booster.

"Many job seekers may be put off by the thought of having online or socially distanced interviews.

"We cover this in our Job Club so that when our delegates are offered interviews, they’re a lot more relaxed and prepared."

The CAP Job Club provides the tools and practical support to help job seekers find work.

It is designed to give encouragement and support, including sessions on writing a CV that will stand out to employers, the job-hunting process and succeeding in interviews.

The eight week course will be led by trained CAP Job Club Coaches at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Western Terrace, Falmouth.

Each weekly session starts at 10:00 am with group time for about 90 minutes for up to 10 people, with food and drink provided.

One-to-one coaching appointments will also be offered.

As there are limited places available register now for the next course starting in September, by contacting Glyn Lumley on 07544 858232 or email:
