If you need advice from the Citizens Advice Bureau and live in Mill End, they have a session every Tuesday afternoon between 1.30 and 6pm at the Methodist Church in Berry Lane, Mill End, Rickmansworth.
We contacted Cllr Eric Bishop after we saw an article in MyRickyNews in June and asked if he would attend one of our Job Club sessions. He came along and chatted to the volunteers and the clients about what the job club does and what they get out of it. The clients Cllr Bishop spoke to all agreed it was the personal one to one service they received that set this aside from the Job Centre and they felt more comfortable looking for jobs in this environment. He also met Mary Sinclair, from MenCap, who are actively recruiting in our area to hear how the way forward for recruiting both employees and volunteers has changed.
We then gave Cllr Bishop a tour of the Community Centre showing what we offer now and the plans we have to offer more services to the community of Mill End and surrounding areas.
You can catch up with all Cllr Bishop’s news on his blog, which can be found at:
A quote from his blog regarding his visit to Mill End Job Club:
“I am glad they contacted me as this is the sort of organisation I want to visit during my year in office. One thing that would help the job club is for local business to let them know of any vacancies they have”.
