    Farnham job seekers are being warmly invited to come along to Sandy Hill Job Club, which from February 3, will be running from 10am until 12 noon every Tuesday. The club, which meets at The Bungalow on Sandy Hill, Farnham, provides a friendly and informal place to meet and a range of services to help people back into work. These include free internet use, up to date details of jobs, plus advice and guidance on: job hunting, job applications, improving your CV, letter writing, planning for interview and interview practice. The club has helped many people into work and training. Former job seekers have been full of praise for the service. Bill who is starting a new career in caring said: “The Job Club was the single most positive vehicle to teach me to write a comprehensive CV which was job specific, to the point and concise. They gave me brilliant advice on letter writing (cold and in general ) as well as how to approach and handle job interviews. l cannot commend them enough for their commitment, encouragement and perseverance. They are a really great team”. Momtaz, who now has a part time job with the Co-op and is training as a teaching assistant, says that she benefited a lot from the Job Club. “I have more confidence to meet people, fill in application forms, write a cv and use a computer to find jobs vacancies” she said. Councillor Julia Potts, Deputy Leader of Waverley and the local ward councillor for Upper Hale, which includes Sandy Hill, is a very strong supporter of the job club and is very pleased that it is being re-launched. “Employment prospects in Waverley are well above the national average but that doesn’t mean that everyone finds it easy to find work. Job clubs have a vital role in providing informal places where job seekers can find the support they need. Sandy Hill Job Club has an excellent track record with skilled and friendly staff who are keen to provide the training, support and equipment to help people back into work”. Waverley also supports ,Cranfold Job Seekers Club in Cranleigh, which is open on Wednesdays (9.30am -5pm) and Fridays (9am -5pm). The Club has had many successes over the years offering advice, mutual support and training for job seekers of all age groups.
