Work clubs

Service information

If you're looking for a job and could use some support, Blackburn with Darwen Council and some community organisations are running free Work Clubs.

Research shows that being part of a work club can improve your chance of getting a job more quickly because members help each other stay positive, can encourage each other, offer advice and help with ideas and new contacts. 

Members of the club can also ask for expert advice on everything from training and what to do next to preparing CVs and interview techniques.

The clubs run every week and are friendly and informal, so if you'd like to take part, please come along.
