Support for job seekers in Hill Top and Caldwell

The Hill Top and Caldwell Big Local Partnership (HTC) is very proud to announce it is working with Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action (WCAVA) and Wembrook Community Centre on a dedicated project, aiming to support residents who live in the neighbourhood get better access to training and employment.

HTC has at least £1million to use over the next 10 years to make a lasting difference; HTC have prioritised increasing access to skills as an area where they wanted to invest some of their funds. So, working with Warwickshire CAVA and the Community Centre, they have set up a weekly work club. The work club will be run by the team from Workcare, and supported by volunteers, and will be at the Community Centre every Wednesday from 12th September, between 12.30pm - 2.30pm; local residents will be able to get basic IT help, advice on compiling CVs and interview hints and tips.

Bill Sheppard, one of the Directors at Wembrook Community Centre said “We are pleased to be launching this vital new service for our community. The work club will be a friendly and welcoming environment for job seekers. Residents from Hill Top and Caldwell can just drop in and talk to the team.”

Warwickshire CAVA will also be offering additional help to residents through a dedicated Employment Advisor. Anil Masih will be on hand to work 1:1 with those who want to improve their skills and have access to better opportunities, and also provide training that is needed to help residents progress. Anil will also be working with local employers to try to match local opportunities to job seekers.

Anil said “I have already met a number of residents who want to build their confidence and need some help to do that. I’ll be helping people set their own manageable goals and offering a range of tailored support. Anyone who lives in Old Hill Top, New Hill Top or Caldwell can call me on 024 7638 5765 or email me anil.masih@wcava.org.uk.
