Decision details


Decision status: Recommendations Approved


The Committee considered the update on the Eastwood Jobs Club and the potential for holding other jobs clubs in the Borough.


It was noted that support could be given to organisations already providing jobs clubs in the area and that access to computers was essential, as one of the main barriers to work was online application processes.  It was suggested that Parish and Town Councils may be able to offer accommodation to jobs clubs. 


Debate progressed on to the need for Jobs Fairs and it was considered that these could be a good way of connecting employers with new recruits to fill vacancies in the hospitality sector. 


RESOLVED that a second jobs club be approved in the area with the highest need identified following the ending of COVID -19 restrictions.
