Helping You Back Into Work

Looking for a job? Need some help and support? Then Careers Springboard West Berkshire can help.

Although with the COVID-19 crisis these are difficult times, companies are adjusting to the 'new normal' and are recruiting accordingly. Over the last few months we have had more job seekers getting jobs than new job seekers who have joined.

For the last year or so we have run weekly meetings on Zoom. From September we will have a mix of face-to-face and Zoom meetings. Our focus is to help mid-career managers and professionals refine their job-seeking skills.

Meetings Programme

Our Autumn programme starts on Wednesday 15th September. You can view it on the programme page or download a PDF copy (A4 folded into A5). The Zoom meetings take place at 10am and those at Broadway House at 2pm. So do check the programme carefully to check our 'venue' for a particular week. Register with us at jobseekers page to keep up to date.

Job-seeking topics we cover include:

These topics - and more - are covered in our programme of meetings. As well as our meetings our team of volunteers can offer 1-on-1 guidance.

Newcomers are always welcome. We look forward to helping you. Read the job seekers' page for more information.

As well as our programme of meetings check out our other services for jobseekers which include 1-on-1 sessions to help with career planning, CV writing, interview preparation etc. If you know of someone who might need our help but does not know about us, why not print out our flier (PDF) and pass it on. See also our Frequently asked Questions page or contact us for further information.
