Redundant? Looking for a Job?

Careers Springboard West Berkshire holds regular weekly meetings on Wednesday afternoons. We are a self-help group whose main role is to help out-of-work professionals, managers and executives in West Berkshire who are seeking a new job. All of this is interpreted widely so that there have been members who regard themselves as living outside the area, or of a lower-level, or in employment (but wanting to change) or wanting to start their own business, or even enjoy an active and worthwhile retirement.

Our volunteers are standing by, ready to help you.

Benefits for Job Seekers

Please note, access to some of these benefits are available only following the recommendation of a volunteer following a relevant 1-to-1 session. Full details of how to access these benefits will be found in the job seeker's membership pack and in the relevant fact sheets.Other than informal 1-on-1s after Wednesday meetings, all other 1-on-1s must be pre-booked.
