The 8 Rotary Clubs in the London borough of Bromley have combined to offer free new online learning opportunities to local people who are unemployed or feel at risk of unemployment. Participants learn useful skills to help them to gain new employment or to start a business. The present circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic can make a job search especially challenging and starting a business extra demanding. So, it is even more important that job seekers are enabled to do themselves full justice when applying and that prospective business owners have access to insights that enable them to succeed quickly.
The first, pilot, phase of Rotary Work Club ran from October to December 2020 and involved Rotary members and experienced volunteer presenters from different professional and business backgrounds. The workshop sessions offered free of charge, independent, practical guidance, and support.
The Rotary Work Club is not a recruitment agency or job brokerage – they don’t look for jobs for candidates or look for candidates for employers. They are also not a job referral scheme, so they don’t connect employers to candidates, or vice versa.
The Rotary Work Club in Bromley will commence a second phase of workshops alongside fortnightly coffee mornings from 11th January 2020. Details and dates will appear here.
