A WORKSHOP has been held to help jobseekers get back into work.

Fourteen members of the M3 Job Club (M3JC), the Basingstoke-based charitable organisation which helps people back into work to support the economy, attended an event called Who Moved My Life? held at BizSpace, in Belvedere House.

The idea was to give members the skills to overcome self-defeating feelings and give more control over the changes that have happened in their lives.

This workshop came about due to a collaboration between Diarmaid Fitzpatrick from Inspiring Enterprises; Andrew Mechen, from BizSpace; and the job club.

Mr Mechen said: “BizSpace has always had a deep-rooted passion for serving the local community and with Belvedere House and M3JC working together, we are ticking this important box.”

Workshop facilitator, certified shadow work group facilitator and coach Mr Fitzpatick, said: “It was a privilege to have had the opportunity of supporting the members of the M3Job Club. To see the participants enthusiastically immerse themselves in the material and how much they enjoyed working together in support of each other was very rewarding.”

The M3 Job Club was founded in April 2011 and is run by volunteers who rely on contributions from members, alumni, businesses and the local council to run coaching-led sessions including workshops for individuals looking to return to the work of work especially after redundancy.

Since it started, the club has supported 700 people in mid-Hampshire back to work.
