Job Clubs provide support with job-seeking. They can help you:
- Improve your CV, interview skills and applications
- Find and apply for jobs, training and apprenticeships
- Think about your future and career choices
Job clubs also provide free use of computers, interviews with workers, and the chance to share tips and experiences with other people seeking work .
Crucial: CHOICES: Earning and Learning sessions for young people not in education, employment and training and those at risk of dropping out run across Oxfordshire in Children & Family Centres. But if you're not able to get to a job club? You can register as a young job-seeker, search opportunities, talk to workers on webchat and sign up for our weekly hot jobs newsletter on this website. You can also visit your local Job Centre+ and ask about support for younger job seekers.

Not ready for a job club yet?
If you are aged 16-18 and have difficulties in your life that are making it hard for you to engage with learning, you can register to get help from the EET Support Service, who can help you find learning opportunities and get support to overcome problems in your life.
Crucial: If you have special educational needs, disabilities or a learning difficulty, you may be worried about moving into the world of work. But there are lots of great opportunities in work, training, and more, in supportive groups that help you build skills and confidence. Workers at your local young person's job club can tell you more, or you can register with the EET Support Service.
