CAP Job Club Manager

Welcome

Thank you so much for considering joining us as a CAP Job Club Manager. This is your opportunity to join a rapidly growing movement of people who are working together to tackle one of the biggest social problems facing us today. We’re so excited for you to join the family!

Who are we?

We’re on a mission to set people in our nation free from a life sentence of debt, poverty and their causes. Our 645 services, including Debt Centres, Job Clubs, Fresh Start and Life Skills groups, are all run through local churches, meaning we can offer our clients not only expert practical support, but companionship, hope and a chance to hear the Gospel too.

At our core, we’re:

  • Passionate and compassionate: We do what we do because we care deeply about seeing people released from debt, poverty and their causes
  • Excellent and generous: We go above and beyond for our clients
  • Courageous: Who wants to settle for the same old when we can push for bigger and better?
  • Fun and united: We’re one big CAP family!
  • Christ-centred: We know none of this would be possible without Jesus

CAP Job Clubs

All CAP’s services are run through local churches to engage and support people in their communities. CAP Job Clubs are designed to help job seekers find work, as well as offering them the opportunity to hear the Gospel. Members are given the tools, skills and confidence to step back into employment through a combination of practical and emotional support – that’s why the Department of Work and Pensions highly recommends our this service. Hear from some of our existing job club staff and other service managers below about why they love what they do!
