The Job Club is a weekly social gathering to support people seeking or just starting employment.

We meet once a week on Thursdays from 2:00pm to 3:30pm in our online AIM Grid environment at the virtual Shine Gallery.  Here we discuss progress and exchange tips and strategies, as well as other events such as activities and presentations by guest speakers.

If you have any questions or would like to get involved (either as a participant or a guest speaker) please feel free to send an E-mail to one of the following addresses:
