Christians Against Poverty (CAP)
What to expect at a CAP Job Club
Portswood Church CAP Job Club meets weekly. You’ll follow an eight-week course that will give you all the tools you need to find work, from writing a CV that employers won’t be able to resist, to brushing up on those all-important interview skills.
Our CAP Job Club is run by trained volunteers who understand the challenges you are facing when looking for work, and who really want you to succeed. You will not only have group support but your CAP Job Club Coach will spend time helping you achieve your personal goals.
Does it cost anything?
All our services are completely free! We’re able to provide free services because CAP is a charity and receives donations from churches and individuals who want to help people.
Do I have to be a Christian to use your services?
No. CAP will help anyone regardless of their religion or beliefs.
CAP monitor our services to make sure that everybody receives the same caring service regardless of race, nationality, religion, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation or disability.
