Work clubs launched to help Solihull's young jobless

Solihull Council is appealing to mums, dads, grandparents and any family members who may know a young person, aged 16 – 24, who is currently looking for work.

Solihull Council is appealing to mums, dads, grandparents and any family members who may know a young person, aged 16 24, who is currently looking for work.

Some young people with qualifications and experience are finding it difficult to get a job at the moment and those with limited experience and qualifications are finding it even harder. The council's employment and skills team wants to work with all unemployed young people living in Solihull to help them progress into their chosen careers.

The team works with training providers and employers to offer local vacancies for local people, but wants to see more young people accessing these opportunities.

The work club will offer tailored workshops to help young people with every aspect of looking for a job from application forms through to interview techniques, as well as hot off the press job vacancies at each session.

The work clubs are as follows:

* Shirley Library Work Club, Church Road, Shirley, B90 2AX, will run every first and third Monday of each month from 10am to 12 noon.

* Coleshill Heath Work Club, Excellence in Community Centre, Marlene Croft, Chelmsley Wood, B37 7JT, will run every first and third Thursday of each month from 10am to 12 noon.

* Hobs Moat Library Work Club, Ulleries Road, Solihull, B92 8EB, will run every second and fourth Monday of each month from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

* Smiths Wood Work Club, Excellence in Community Centre, Smiths Wood Sports College, Windward Way, Smiths Wood, B36 OUE, will run every second and fourth Friday of each month from 1pm to 3pm.
