Romsey Job Club

We are now based at Youth in Romsey, 23 Bell Street (above Anya, next door to La Parisienne).

We look forward to seeing you there.

Drop in for a cup of tea or coffee and get friendly and helpful advice to help you with your job hunting

Our website provides information and support for jobseekers in Romsey. Over to the right you can see links to pages with a variety of information, from lists of agencies to hints on how to deal with interviews (scroll up if you can't see the contents list). Have a look round the site to see how we can help you.

If you want to make a comment about anything on the wiki, just click on the DISCUSSION tab at the top of any page. You'll need to register with Wikispaces, but that's free and painless, and means you could create your very own Wiki if you want (it's a really easy way to set up a website)
