The ready4work job club

The Ready 4 Work Club is a partnership initiative between the Trent Bridge Community Trust and Metropolitan Housing.

The initial idea was to establish a job club in Cotgrave solely for 16 to 19 year olds who are not in employment, education or training. However, after the success of this the project was widened to include all ages. It is run by a small team of volunteers with a diverse range of experience from science to business sectors. The club also has an employment officer to support you every step of the way into employment.

Cotgrave Wednesdays

The Ready4Work job club takes place every Wednesday (1-3pm) in Studio 1 at Cotgrave Leisure Centre. Cotgrave Ready 4 Work is an open access service designed to help any users gain employment. At the weekly meetings they can get access to the latest vacancies, get support or advice, build or update CV’s and share experiences with other people in a similar position. We’ll even make you a cuppa!

Bingham Thursdays

Ready 4 Work Bingham takes place every Thursday (10am-12noon) in the new Methodist Church in Bingham centre, we are upstairs and across the balcony. Please ask at the tea bar if you get lost!

Ready 4 Work is a free service and open to anyone over the age of 16. There is no obligation to use the service.
