New computers for Diss job club

Jobseekers in Diss have received a boost after getting two new computers to assist in their search for work.

Norfolk MEP Richard Howitt handed over the computers to members of the Diss Job Club on Friday on behalf of Saffron Housing Trust.

The job club opened its doors in April and meets once a week at the Denny Centre in Diss. Members from the ages of 17 to 75 receive advice on how to improve their CVs and interview skills.

Adam Ronaldson, chief executive of Saffron Housing Trust, which funded the new computers, said: 'We are always pleased to help the communities in which we work to provide opportunities for residents. The Diss job club provides the community with support for those seeking employment so we were very pleased to help them with equipment and a place to meet.'

Mr Howitt added: 'These computers mean members will be able to search for jobs online and send applications by email. With spending cuts looming people need all the help they can when looking for work.'
