North Northamptonshire Council is teaming up with partners to support job seekers across the local area.

The new NN Jobs Club will occur in-person every Tuesday from 6 September between 11am and 2pm rotating around four locations:

  • Kettering - Council Chamber, Bowling Green Road (6 September)
  • Wellingborough - Swansgate Shopping Centre, near Customer Services (13 September)
  • Corby - Council Chamber, Corby Cube (20 September)
  • Rushden - Salvation Army, 19 Church Street (27 September)

The sessions will provide customised support for local residents until they find employment, training, volunteering or start a new business. Plus in between the sessions, Job Club members will be encouraged to stay in touch with partners.

NNC are working with partners including Job Centre Plus, MIND, Prospects, Evolve Your Future, Tresham College, University of Northampton, Catalyst, Serve, the Prison Service and the Salvation Army. 

It is great that we are able to team up with partners to provide vital support and assistance to job seekers across North Northamptonshire. I am especially pleased that NN Job Club meetings will be held at locations throughout North Northamptonshire and this underlines our desire to provide this service throughout our area.

As well as the weekly sessions, the team will be working to deliver further support, including in more rural areas and harder to reach communities across North Northamptonshire to ensure that as many people as possible are helped to find work.
Cllr David Brackenbury, the council’s Executive Member for Growth and Regeneration
These sessions are designed to support an individual’s needs and our team will work closely with you. So, if you or someone you know is currently looking for work, training and volunteering opportunities or maybe considering starting a business, then I would encourage you to come along to become a member.

It is great that our teams and partners are visiting four of our larger towns across North Northamptonshire - Rushden, Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough, which means that support and advice will never be too far away for those wanting to access the service.
Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council

To become a member of the NN Job Club, simply attend one of the sessions listed above. Alternatively, you can email the NN Job Club team to register your interest. All information, advice and guidance that is given is free, strictly confidential and customised to your personal circumstances.

NN Job Club sessions will be promoted via the NNC Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages.
