Don’t miss this!
At the next session of The Work Club at the Central Library, on Monday 1st October, beginning at 10:30am, our guest speaker will be Tracey Morewood.
Tracey is a tutor and assessor who delivers work skills to the unemployed to improve their chances of gaining employment. Tracey will talk about “standing out from the crowd, selling yourself, and getting that job”. CVs and interview skills are of vital importance, but Tracey also likes to address what she calls “the bit in the middle”, referring to “confidence, self-esteem, and self-belief which many people, even successful people often have barriers to.”
Tracey is the author of a recent book called How to Get on the Employment Ladder: You Have the Skills; Now Learn to Develop Them, to give it its full title.
As Tracey says on its back cover, “This book is straight to the point. I tell you what you need to know, not baffle you with what you don’t.”
We have three copies of the book to give away! If you attend the session you will be able to enter the draw to win a copy of your own!
There is no booking – just come along to the Central Library on Monday 1st October for 10:30am

As an EU national you are entitled to take up work or look for a job in another EU country.
You are entitled to be recruited under the same conditions as nationals of the country in which you are seeking work. You cannot be asked to meet any additional requirements. This means that you can apply for any job vacancy advertised in any EU country, including public sector jobs. However, certain public service posts may be restricted to nationals of a particular country where the job in question involves safeguarding public order or the interests of the state.
You can find more information on your rights to work in the EU at the “Free Movement – EU nationals” page.
Rights at work
EU residents have certain rights at their place of employment; these rights are defined in various pieces of legislation. This legislation covers such things as minimum annual leave entitlement, maximum working hours, and health and safety. You can find details of these rights at the EU “Rights at work” page. The legislation behind these rights is described at the “Labour law” page.
Finding a job in the EU
If you’re looking for a job in another European Union member state, a good place to start is EURES – European Employment Services. This has listings of jobs across the EU and provides other facilities, like access to advisers and a place to upload your CV.
Jobcentre Plus also has information on finding a job in the EU.
