Finding information in libraries about getting back to work

Camden’s libraries are a great place to borrow books, DVDs and music – but there’s a lot more to our service. If you are unemployed, or are threatened with losing your job, libraries can offer you access to a range of resources to help you:

  • free access to computers and the internet for email and job finding (you need to be a library member for free access or there is a small charge for guest)
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • collections of books on finding a job and CV and job application writing
  • some libraries run or host advice sessions on finding a job or CV writing – ask at your nearest one
  • some hard copy newspapers and magazines with job advertisements are freely available including the Camden New Journal and Hampstead and Highgate Express

Help online

The government’s guide to all public services is GOV.UK, which includes a comprehensive range of links to advice sites on employment, education, learning and benefits.

Job searching. 

The majority of jobs are advertised online but some newspapers carry adverts. Camden libraries have a selection of hard copies but over 4,000 newspapers are available online on PressDisplay, free to Camden library card holders.  You can download the App or use the service in the library by registering your email on the site.
