A jobs club in Netherfield has helped find new roles for two local residents.
Gedling Homes residents looking for employment are invited to attend a weekly Work Club, which has been held in Netherfield for the past four years at St George’s Centre in the town.
Mark Crocker, who lives at Walton Court in Carlton, is one of the people the club has helped to secure a new role. Mark has been offered a post at an award-winning public house in Lowdham. Following a successful trial at the pub, the position was offered to him.
Despite one previous short-term contract, innumerable work placements, job applications and interviews, he had not been able to find a permanent job until now. Mark is convinced the CV that the Gedling Homes team helped him compile was crucial to him securing the role.
Mark said: “I can’t wait to get started and look forward to a busy festive season.”
The Gedling Homes Work Clubs are open to all tenants. The clubs give assistance and advice with CV writing, learning interview techniques, practising interview skills and job searches. This enables tenants to be better equipped for securing permanent work at a pace that works for them.
Jenny Kaur, another Gedling tenant who has been attending the work club at Netherfield, also recently had some good news. She secured a role in retail at Lakeland Homeware shop in Nottingham.
The club in Netherfield is on every Monday from 2-4pm at St George’s Centre. There is also a club in Arnold at The Beacon every Thursday between 2-4pm.
