The Online Job Search course has been relaunched to help people who are inexperienced in using computers to develop their IT skills and find work.

The course, which starts up again later this month, helps people to develop a range of skills. These include looking and applying for jobs online, setting up an email address, using search engines such as Google and the government’s Universal Jobmatch system – a free, online service that enables you to search for and apply for jobs on one of the largest job boards in Europe.

Online Job Search is open to south London residents and Thames Reach service users currently receiving benefits. The course is run by Thames Reach in partnership with Spires – a south London based homelessness charity.

Thames Reach employment and resettlement worker, Tayma Hunte, said: "The Online Job Search course helps people to realise their full potential and get ready for work. The course enables people to improve their computer and literacy skills, learn how to effectively search for jobs, as well as develop their CV, write a covering letter and complete application forms.”

The course runs every Thursday from 10.00am – 12.00pm at the Employment Academy in Camberwell, 29 Peckham Road, London SE5 8UA, starting on Thursday 22 January.
