Job seekers reap rewards from new club in Billingshurst

Some job seekers appear to be benefiting from a special club in Billingshurst.

Fifteen people have been applying for work and at least three have found local work after attending the Work Information and Support Club.

The group, based at Billingshurst library, was launched in June and provides help with ‘CV’ writing, applying for jobs and interview techniques. 

It was set up by Horsham District Council’s Economic Development team working in partnership with Billingshurst Community Partnership and the local ‘Think Family’ community project.

Cabinet member for community and well being Cllr Kate Rowbottom said: “I am delighted that this accessible programme has engaged so many local people at such an early stage.

“If you are unemployed and living in the Billingshurst area, I recommend that you drop in and meet the team there and sign up for the programme which is proving so valuable to a wide range of jobseekers of all ages and circumstances.”

The sessions take place each Wednesday morning and form a rolling programme of modules. New people are welcome to join the group at any point. The sessions are held by two trained facilitators who are there to provide support, information and to help people in whatever way they can.
