We are a registered charity, run entirely by volunteers.
What we do…
Since 1991 Careers Springboard Gerrards Cross has been successfully helping managers, executives, professionals and more recently, graduates back into work, often in more senior positions and sometimes in a completely new career direction. Over the 25 years we have held around 40 events each year that constantly evolve to meet the current challenges facing our membership in developing the skills to make their next career move. Our volunteer team have a wide range of experiences from different industry sectors at senior levels and as consultants. Programme topics are chosen for their relevance to help you find your next job effectively and efficiently.
We meet most Monday evenings from 7.30 -10 pm at St Andrews United Reformed Church Hall, Packhorse Road, Gerrards Cross SL9 7QE
But we don’t do all the work – Careers Springboard is firmly based on self and mutual-help. Jobseekers at Careers Springboard are most successful in securing a new role when they motivate themselves and respond actively to the jobseeker services, the advice and the direction offered to them at Careers Springboard. We encourage our members to become fully involved in activities and to network with fellow members supporting their job search whilst sharing in and applauding their success.
A little background….
Careers Springboard Gerrards Cross is part of a network of Executive Job Clubs in the Thames Valley area and you are welcome to attend any of the other meetings at Slough, Bracknell and Newbury. Please look at their websites for details of topics and meeting days and times. Whilst we share a philosophy, each group has its own identity and we share best practice, speakers and innovative thinking. As a registered charity, we are funded individually and jointly by local parish councils, local authorities and private funding which allows us to offer a range of services to help jobseekers. All we ask of you is to let us know when and where you have found new work and to share your success with fellow members and the volunteer team. Your successes will provide regular opportunities to celebrate and motivate our Careers Springboard members.
