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.

Meetings Programme

Important Update: Since all our current job seekers have either got jobs or are pursuing other options our meetings programme has now been supsended. However, please register if you would like some help and we shall get back to you. Normal programme will be resumed as numbers of job seekers build up.
