A local church is set to run free clubs to help people get back into work.

Members of the Abundant Life Church have received specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty, and will be holding workshops that combine one-to-one consultations, group support and practical sessions that cover topics such as identifying strengths, CV writing and interview techniques.

Job Club manager Philip Aitchison told the Hawick News: “With more people facing long-term unemployment, there is a real need for a personal service which provides practical and emotional support for people to find work again.”

The club will run weekly from this Tuesday at 10.30am in the Abundant Life Church in Fairhurst Drive.
