Diversity House aims to help people into work or enterprise and make sure that work pays. In return, people on out-of-work benefits need to take the opportunities available to them to move off benefits and into work therefore improving their economic prowess. Out of work older people can find it more difficult to get a job and they are more likely than younger people to remain unemployed for longer. Also women can find it difficult to go back to work after long term caring for children and families.
For all the above reasons we have introduced the Work Club set up with the support of the DWP to address the different impediments or blockades to employment. The Work Club provides flexible and personalised support for both benefit and non-benefit claimants who need more help to find and stay in work.
Work Club delivers an 8 week program around confidence building and behavioural motivation; CV writing; job searching; goal setting and action planning; interview techniques and mock interviews; communication and presentation skills; and work ethics etc.
