EXTRA help is on its way for jobless people in the Crosland Moor area.
A new `job club' is starting on Monday at the Crosland Moor ICT Centre on Park Road.
It will run from 3.30pm to 5.30pm every Monday.
People will be referred to the club by Job Centre Plus in Huddersfield, but people can also call on a drop-in basis.
Tutors will visit on a voluntary basis to teach people how to create CVs, how to develop good interview techniques and how to fill in application forms.
Visitors will also be offered confidence-building exercises and the chance to brush up on literacy and numeracy skills.
There are also language classes for people who need to improve their English.
Links are being made with local employers to secure work experience placements for jobseekers.
Mags Rhodes, the centre's joint manager, said the job club would be more than just a place to look up vacancies.
She said: "It's a whole package. There are a lot of disadvantaged people in this area and we want to improve their chances of getting a job to better their quality of life.
"We hope people take advantage of this new service, because it could really make a difference."
The job club is being paid for by a grant from Kirklees Council.
The Crosland Moor ICT Centre, which opened in 2002, runs on grants from a variety of sources.
All its workers are voluntary, apart from Mags and co-manager Peter Sylvester.
