SRSB logo

NEW Job Club:

If you looking for work or if have you been unemployed for a while, then our exciting NEW Job Club will be perfect for you! SRSB recognises that unemployment can affect your confidence and wellbeing, and these sessions are aimed specifically at our visually impaired clients and their particular concerns. 

We are currently in discussion with several organisations including Barclays, who have offered to support us with the Job Club. We have approached organisations we believe will be able to offer a wealth of experience in this area. 

The Job Club will begin on Wednesday 11th April from 7pm to 9pm and will initially run for 8 weeks.

Specifically, we will be asking organisations/speakers to discuss the following areas with you:

Week 1. Finding out about jobs in the first instance. Where to search.

Week 2.Support with the creation of a CV or filling in Application Forms and identifying your strengths and skills

Week 3. Development of confidence, speaking and dress for your interview. Discussing disability rights in relation to your interview.

Week 4. Motivational stories – we will ask some of our clients who have had successes with their careers to share their experiences so that you will feel inspired by their successes and have the chance to ask questions.

Week 5. Interview practice with professional interviewers.

Week 6. Feedback from CVs/Application Forms and interviews (this will be done privately).

Week 7. Discussion group about the previous weeks, Q&As and moving forward to employment.

Week 8. An opportunity if you are currently employed, to discuss career development within your organisation. Or to ask questions about maintaining employment and the technology available if you have just found out you have a sight condition. 

This is are FREE sessions and places are limited, so please register your interest at SRSB as soon as possible on 0114 272 2757 or email info@srsb.org.uk and we will get in touch with you. You are welcome to come to all the sessions, or ones that are of particular interest, but please reserve your place.  We hope to offer this group again in the future so your feedback is greatly appreciated.
