I have accepted an offer of a 12 month fixed term contract to work as a project manager with a major Hospital Foundation Trust.  I was hired because of my experience in office relocation and am responsible for the equipment work stream within the commissioning project for a new 14 floor cancer centre. A few months prior I had attended a Jobs Fair staged by the military and left my details with an NHS representative who subsequently circulated my CV to several Trusts. The Careers Springboard assistance which specifically helped me secure this role included a very well-focused discussion with John Pope as part of my interview preparation. Thank you all for your continuous support during my 18 months of job searching activity.

I started a new job at a Software Technology company as an Account Manager and I’m really pleased. I would like to take this opportunity to re-iterate what I said at the meeting – thank you to the Careers Springboard team for the help, guidance and support provided – it is has been really worthwhile, appreciated and has worked!
Account Manager

After 5 months working with Careers Springboard I was offered a new role. Careers Springboard was extremely helpful in achieving that. Unfortunately the opportunity was withdrawn as the company imposed a global recruitment freeze even before I started. I was thus delighted to start another role a few months later in another organisation as a Standards, Regulatory and Patents Manager. Thank you again for all the encouragement and truly valuable suggestions and tips… it all really made a difference, I’ll be recommending Careers Springboard to anyone I find in the same situation.

Just a quick email to update my current situation : After a two months temp job at the department of Economics of Oxford University from September, I was successful in my job interview and have been made an offer to work as a finance assistant at the department of Medicine. The contract lasts for one year. Many thanks for the help which I received from Careers Springboard, I wouldn’t have achieved this without your help

The networking really got me motivated and the Monday meetings covered off what I needed to use my existing network and to work better with recruitment companies. The CV and Interview coaching gave me great confidence. I got a job more quickly than I expected and I would like to thank all at Careers Springboard for their help and support”

As a Graduate, I was a little worried about attending, but I was made very welcome and one member became my mentor and helped guide me around the services available. I was also given a lot of help with networking among the companies I was targeting, which resulted in me getting a paid internship which I really wanted”
