About us

25% of participants in the first group got a job or placement.

Do you live in the Borough of Bromley? Have you lost your job through Covid? Is your job at risk? We can help you with: ● Getting back on your feet ● CV writing ● Job Search ● Interview skills ● Starting your own business

The Rotary Work Club in Bromley launches Phase 2 from January 2021, making new and renewed content available to help 2021's local unemployed people and those who are worried about losing their jobs.


Between October and December 2020, the 8 Rotary Clubs in the London Borough of Bromley worked together to offer free new online learning opportunities to local people in Bromley who were unemployed or who felt at risk of unemployment. In that pilot 'Phase 1' of Rotary Work Club, participants learned useful skills to help them to gain new employment or to start a business. The Covid-19 pandemic is having a well-publicised and devastating impact on employment and businesses and the Rotary Work Club in Bromley was created to help people at this very difficult time.


Rotary Work Club Phase 2 includes new workshops and begins on 11th January 2021. All sessions run from 10am-11am

25% of participants in the first group got a job or placement before the end of the programme, and several have been brave enough in this difficult time for self employment, to start their own businesses. 
We continue to offer support to those who want it, through fortnightly coffee mornings on Zoom.



Why the Work Club?

The present circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic can make a job search especially challenging. So, it is even more important that you do yourself full justice when applying!

Why Rotary?

Rotary in the Borough of Bromley comprises the membership of eight established Rotary Clubs. For all, support for issues that concern our local community is a key priority.

Why might you be looking for a new job just now?

Perhaps you have been made redundant from your previous job?

Or thinking about something that will better suit your abilities or circumstances?

So, how might our Work Club be able to help you?

Our trained volunteer facilitators come from many different professional and business backgrounds and experience. But they share the same purpose – to help you succeed in finding a job that is right for you. We cannot promise the outcome, of course, but gladly offer, free of charge, independent, practical guidance and support on: 

• Understanding what your strengths are

• Setting yourself a goal and making a plan

• Where to look for jobs

• Filling in an application form

• Creating your C.V.

• Getting ready for an interview

• How to build your confidence

• Staying motivated

Please understand that we are not a recruitment agency or job brokerage – we don’t look for jobs for candidates or look for candidates for employers. We are also not a job referral scheme, so we don’t connect employers to candidates, or vice versa.

How does it work?

We would normally expect initial enquiries to be by e-mail to rotaryworkclub@gmail.com

In reply, we will ask for some basic information and give you more details. 

You will then be invited to our ‘taster’ session where you can meet the team running the Work Club and have a short preview of each full learning session. 

The 2021 dates are:

Good luck,

Rotary Work Club Team

The Ravensbourne Rotary Club has recognized the advice today  given by the UK Government about Coronavirus and have decided forthwith to temporarily suspend all Meetings and Events of the Club until further notice. 

This decision will take effect immediately (18th March 2020) to safeguard our Members, as well as the wider communities that we serve. 

This temporary suspension of club meetings will remain in place until it is again safe to share social contact with others.


Please check back to this website for any updates

Although the club is not currently meeting regularly many of our members are still working within the community

If you wish to make contact with the club please contact us via the contact page.




I’m the President of the Ravensbourne Rotary Club 2020-2021

I am the Club’s first virtual President as we have met on Zoom since April 2020 shortly after the Corona virus  pandemic started.


Our membership base of 25 covers many trades and professions and interests. 

I am glad that you’ve found your way to our Club website. We hope that you find this site informative and that it gives you an insight into what we do and the great enjoyment we take from doing it. 

At the club, we believe that we need to have a positive impact on our local community and those in need further afield – Many of our members have a link with the local area either by working or living in the area 

We are also lucky enough to have in our midst Rotarians who have run several local and international projects including working with the Scouts, Healthcare, Youth work, the homeless.

Rotary is not all about fundraising. It is about social events and meetings with like-minded people. It is about networking. It is about community service. It is about friendship. It's about caring for our local environment 

The Ravensbourne Rotary Club is providing a space for good men and women to do something to help those around them... and to have a good time doing it! Please visit us to see what we do, how we do and where you can fit in and help us.

In normal times we would meet at the Bromley Court Hotel on Wednesday evenings 6:30 for 7pm - where you can be sure of a warm welcome, but like so many organizations we are currently unable to have face to face meetings. We do have weekly Zoom catchup meeting,  feel free to contact me via the contact page if you wish to make a virtual visit.

 Ravensbourne Rotary club endeavor to serve the local needs of the people in the Catford and  Bromley areas and the wider world under the umbrella of Rotary
