Careers Springboard Supporting Job Seekers in West Berkshire

Careers Springboard West Berkshire (CSWB) is run by volunteers to help redundant and unemployed managers and executives in the Newbury and surrounding areas to find a new position.  We meet on Wednesdays in Broadway House, near the Clock Tower in Newbury, from 1.45pm to about 4pm.

Meeting Format

Each meeting includes a workshop or presentation on a job search topic, e.g. CV preparation, interview skills, networking, job-search strategies, self-organisation, etc.  We sometimes also include a 45-minute mini-session on a separate topic.

Each meeting follows roughly the following format:

  • 1:45 pm – Networking and round-table updates. Please arrive promptly on time, since access is more complicated after 1:45pm start (see below).
  • 2:15 pm (approx) – Workshop session. Typically this will be a presentation followed by small group (3-4 people) discussions, and closing with reporting back and summary of key points
  • 3:45 pm (approx) – Informal networking and 1-to-1 sessions with volunteers and/or
    mini-sessions – topics that go in more depth on specific topics. You are free to leave at the end of the main session (between 3:30 and 3:45) if you do not wish to participate in these activities
  • 4:45pm – Meeting ends.

There will be light refreshments available on a side table in the conference room.

Venue

Broadway House

All meetings take place in Conference Room G9 on the ground floor of:
Broadway House

The programme cycle runs three times a year, starting in January, April and September, but candidates can join at any time.  The volunteers can also provide individual one-to-one coaching on any aspect of the job search.

There is no charge for our services and we operate as a charity.
