ODEF Workclub

ODEF-workclub

The ODEF Work Club offers an informal and relaxed space where people looking for work can come together and undertake job search via computers, papers and word of mouth.

Mission
To give local people access to the resources they need to find employment and support them back into work.

Description
The ODEF Work Club is open every Thursday between 9.30am -2.30pm at the ODEF offices at 35 Forest Road, Ollerton and everyone looking for work is welcome.

The ODEF Work Club gives local unemployed residents the chance to:

  • Meet other people looking for work in an informal, friendly and relaxed environment and chat over a coffee
  • Build new contacts
  • Share job hunting experiences
  • Receive advice on interview techniques, CVs and volunteering opportunities
  • Access job search via computers, papers and our jobs boards

The club offers an informal and relaxed space where people looking for work can come together and share experiences, undertake job search and help each other back on the road to find employment.  Those attending have access to the local papers, jobs boards, computers and the internet and more importantly each other as many jobs are found via word of mouth and through networking with others.

Carol and Jade, who both work for ODEF, are on hand to support members in their job hunt alongside those members who volunteer to help their peers and make them feel welcome.

Just some of the things the ODEF Work Club has been able to look at and support members with in the past are: setting up Universal Job Match accounts, setting up email accounts to enable members to apply for jobs electronically and upload CVs onto job websites, creating or updating CVs, support with application writing, looking at training requirements and supporting members with this, exploring volunteering opportunities as a way back into work as well as providing access to job vacancies.

Calling all local businesses:  If you have any job
vacancies coming up let us know at the ODEF Work Club and we will put
them on our jobs board……..
