Monday 19th Apr – Webinar: Changing Track / Transferable Skills

April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

If you’re looking to change role, or sector make sure you don’t miss this webinar. We’re joined by a headhunter, a coach and a previous Careers Springboard member who pivoted his career following the impact of Covid on his sector.

They will be sharing insights from their own perspectives about how to identify your skills to enable a new direction.

Presenters: Robert Teale, Sarah Clarke, Oyvind Helgerud


Robert Tearle is a headhunter with a passion for career coaching, who has recruited 1000’s of people in to high impact roles for software companies, including IBM, SAP and BT.  Most of his work today is with smaller emerging companies.

In 2013, he set up his own consulting practice, supporting investors, business owners of Tech, SaaS and digital firms who wish to make high impact hires.
As a boutique headhunting firm, their purpose is to help organisations achieve superior outcomes.  

29 years ago Robert was first asked questions like “How can I improve my CV?”, “What different types of job openings might be available to me?”, and he’s still asked these questions today.  Fundamentally, there has not been too much change to the basic principles of job hunting over this period – what is significantly different is the ‘how’ and the application of digital skills to achieve similar outcomes.


Sarah Clarke aka ‘The Work Happiness Coach’, is a career, leadership and culture coach.

Before setting up her own coaching business, Shine Brighter Consulting, in 2018, she worked in the fields of employee engagement, workplace culture and leadership development for over 15 years for various tech, fintech and dot com organisations such as lastminute.com, Yahoo! and latterly Simply Business where, as Head of Talent & Engagement, she devised the people engagement strategy that resulted in them winning “The Best Company to Work for in the UK according to the Sunday Times in both 2015 and 2016”.

She now works with individuals who want to find more happiness, purpose and success in their work lives; by helping them either re-design their careers or start up their own business which align authentically with their personality and purpose.

Oyvind is a Platform Project Manager at Elekta and a former member of Careers Springboard during 2020, who supported the charity by acting as Chair for one of the events last year.

He has fulfilled multiple project manager roles throughout his career to date in the travel industry and is representative of people who have switched to a different sector due to the impact of the pandemic on their industry.

Oyvind’s contribution to this event will explain why an industry change would be most likely in his former situation.  He will also refer to the experience he has gained working with recruiters outside his industry, as well as interview preparation and interview experience in other industries whilst including feedback that he has received from these organisations.

Finally, he shares the journey he encountered in securing his current job along with the experiences gained so far.
