I recently heard via an old friend about a job club that he had heard about in his area so I started looking around for details of similar job clubs.
I have started a listing below, if you know of any other job clubs, please let me know so that I can include them as well. firstname.lastname@example.org
GB Job Clubs
The GB Job Clubs (charity) web site site includes a "Job Clubs Directory" with details of a growing number of of job clubs across the UK. You can also submit details of other job clubs for inclusion in their directory. We of course would also like to have details of any new job clubs for inclusion on this page - contact details for White Collar Unemployed web site are on our contact page.
Job Clubs Directory
I managed to find a directory of job clubs across the UK on Touch Local. You can search for job clubs near you here Touch local job clubs directory. They only seem to list addresses and telephone numbers, no details of what the job clubs offer or when they meet so you will have to give them a call to get more information.
The following job clubs are ones that have been recommended directly. Where possible, I have included details of what they offer, when and where they meet etc.

We meet every Friday morning (9-12) at the St Swithuns Community centre and currently offer free internet and computing access. We can also offer support with CV writing, interview techniques etc.
We have a good network of support in the district and so can also put people in touch with the support they are looking for if we can't offer it direct. Everyone attending gets a free memory stick to enable them to store CVs etc
We also have plenty of adult education classes running at the centre and so can help people access further training if required.
