Red Kite Job Club

Our Job Club is open every Monday from 10am to 4pm and is a great place to visit if you want to look at career opportunities.


Our current arrangements

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic we've made some changes to the way the Job Club is running – but the good news is that we’re still here.

Rather than running from our usual venue at Baker House in Baker Street, High Wycombe, the Job Club is now online, which means you can visit us from the comfort of your home.

You can make an appointment with a member of the team by emailing wellbeing@redkitehousing.org.uk. When you contact us please tell us what you'd like help with so we can make sure that we match you up with the best person.

Where possible, we'll meet with you via a video call, where we'll talk to you face-to-face. We’ll provide support and guidance during the appointment as well as share additional resources with you.

Our partners

We run the Job Club in partnership with some great organisations:

  • advice on successful job hunting
  • understanding your transferrable skills 
  • building your skills and experience for your dream job.

Success stories

If you’re not sure if this is for you, why not read about how some past attendees have been helped by the Job Club.

Names have been changed to protect individuals identities. 

Stuart's story

After his driving job finished, Stuart signed up for the Job Club – determined to find himself a new job. He didn’t want another driving job, and wanted to work in construction. To improve his employment options, Stuart needed to get his basic English and Maths qualifications, as well as get his CSCS (labouring) card.

With the support of the Job Club, Stuart signed up for courses at Millbrook and remained committed to working on achieving his qualifications. He said he was grateful for the help and patience of all those he met through the Job Club.

After achieving his qualifications, Stuart went on to successfully get his CSCS card, and it wasn’t long before he found his first construction job.

James' story

James joined the Job Club for similar reasons to Stuart – he wanted to work in construction. The Job Club supported Stuart to get his CSCS card and find a job at a local building site in High Wycombe.

He was so pleased, that he visited the Job Club during his lunch breaks in his first couple of weeks! We’re always pleased to see friendly faces and it was great to see James happy in his new role.

Mohammed's story

Mohammed came to the Job Club following a recommendation he received from the Department of Works and Pensions (DWP).  At the Job Club we helped him update his CV, ensuring that it showcased all the great experience and skills that he had. We also helped Mohammed create an account on Indeed so he could apply for jobs easily with his fresh CV.  

Mohammed was invited to an interview for the first job he applied for and secured a job in Highway Maintenance.

Feeling positive from his success, Mohammed asked if we could help him secure a place to live, so we put Mohammed in touch with one of the great partners we work with, P3 Charity, who are working with him on his next goal.
