Our Work Club offers 1-2-1 help with CV writing, interview tips, job search and much more. Every Thursday 1pm – 3pm at our offices in Blaina. Just pop in…

I participated in an OCN course in customer care at Tai Calon Community Housing… Two years later I am in a permanent position with the organisation


I attended Work Club every Thursday and it helped me look into IT courses. I was offered a lot of support outside of Work Club too by being sent emails with updates of jobs and also any upcoming courses that may have been of interest to me


I have gained qualifications in First Aid and I was helped to renew my Forklift licenses. I also attended a course which allowed me to pass an exam to get my CSCS card. I now have a better opportunity to find work
