Wokingham Job Support Centre


It was a pleasure to visit the Wokingham Job Support Centre today to celebrate its 20th birthday. I enjoyed meeting the volunteers and thanking them for all the work they and the Trustees do to ensure a good advisory service to unemployed people in Wokingham.

The rate of unemployment has stayed very low in Wokingham through the Credit Crunch and economic crisis. Wokingham Job Support Centre helps achieve this great result. They assist people with their CVs, interviews and self confidence. They help them define what they can do and what they want to do, and put them in touch with opportunities and training.

Now based in the Cornerstone Centre at All Saints Church, the organisation provides an excellent service to our community. Well done to all involved, and thanks to you all for helping local people get back to work when they have lost their job.

    Excellent, Invaluable service. Used it a few years ago, when it was located at Church House, off Easthampstead Rd. A million times better than the completely hopeless Job Centre.
