A new scheme aiming to provide a comfortable environment to help people back into work has launched today.

Run by the debt help charity Christians Against Poverty, the Jobs Club will help the jobless improve their skills in CV writing, confidence building and interview techniques.

Dave Bowles, who has a background in the computer industry and was specifically selected for the role by CAP Hemel Hempstead manager Owen Cooper, said: “It can be hard for jobseekers when they have a short slot at the job centre. We want to provide a relaxing, sociable atmosphere to get their self-esteem up so they feel able to get into the job market.”

The eight-week scheme, which already has a handful of recruits, will continue weekly on Tuesdays at 10am.

Candidates will have 90 minutes of tuition before time to socialise at The Base, in Haven House, London Road. A Friday club will also run from the South Hill Centre in Cemetery Hill.
