Virtual Job Club Week 6. 17/02/2021

SRSB and RSS logos 

Motivational Speakers

Wednesday 17th February. 2 to 4pm. 

Online Zoom Meeting.

Are you a client in Sheffield or Rotherham? Are you trying to decide on a career, want a change of career, or currently looking for work? Then our Virtual Job Club will help you. 

SRSB/RSS recognises that unemployment can affect your confidence and wellbeing, and these sessions are aimed specifically at our visually impaired clients and their particular concerns. 

For each of these sessions we ask representatives from local organisations, members of our staff, and other visually impaired people to speak about the topics for each session. 

These sessions will give you an insight into several local organisations and also into the careers of some of our visually impaired supporters.

The Job Club will run for 8 weeks online via Zoom. 

These are FREE sessions and places are limited, so please register your interest at SRSB/RSS as soon as possible on 0114 272 2757 or email and we will get in touch with you with joining instructions.
