Jobs Club Graduates Scale New Heights

The Jobs Club, founded by local MP for Warrington South David Mowat in 2009, is celebrated yet more success on Friday.

Participants who complete the 12 week course would usually gain an ILM Level 5 award in Leadership skills, but such has been the calibre of applicants in the current season, several managed to achieve a Level 7 qualification. David Mowat was there to present certificates along with former Jobs Club Graduate and founder of Appleton Baby Massage, Susan Kemp.

The Jobs Club, founded by local MP for Warrington South David Mowat in 2009, is celebrated yet more success on Friday.

David Mowat was there to present certificates along with former Jobs Club Graduate and founder of Appleton Baby Massage, Susan Kemp.

Out of the most recent group, 14 out of the 15 who started the course have since moved back into work and the group has spawned 6 new businesses. Since 2009, the Club has helped 300 people and boasts an 85% success rate.

Congratulating participants, David Mowat said:

“There is a simple reason why this club has been so successful in getting people back to work. By choosing to take the course, learn new skills and meet new people, participants have already decided that they are going to go and look for work, rather than waiting for it to find them.

Unemployment has been falling steadily in Warrington for many months, but we can still go further and faster. That’s why I’m delighted that my annual Jobs Fair will be returning to the Parr Hall on February 6th.

I’m determined to do everything I can to help get people in Warrington get back in to work so that they can earn a paypacket and provide a secure future for their families.
