The East Berkshire Executive Job Club formally known as the Windsor & Maidenhead Executive Job Club was formed in September 2005 to help out-of-work executives, managers and professionals in the area to get back into work. The group meets at the Aspire Centre in the Slough Trading Estate on Thursday mornings. A similar model is used by Careers Springboard in Gerrards Cross, Bracknell and Newbury. Access to information about these sites is provided on the Links page should they be better suited to your location. In September 2007 the Job Club was re-launched as a volunteer run organisation. The club is now a registered charity, registration number: 1136202
Each club meets on different days of the week and at different times of the day. The East Berkshire meetings provide members with support in four distinct ways:
1. Meetings are focused on a specific aspect of job searching or preparation, including application letter and CV writing, telephone techniques, networking, use of the internet, interview techniques and personal presentation. These give the members opportunity to share experience and to develop and practice their skills.
2. Interactive format and group discussions provide opportunities to share information and learn from each other’s experiences.
3. Members review their own progress and discuss their own challenges, and set up further private meetings with a Volunteer or other members as necessary. For example, possible revisions to a CV might be discussed so as to make it a more effective selling document customised for a specific job application.
4. Opportunity is given for members to network. This key area is enhanced by the club’s location at the Aspire Centre in the heart of the Slough Trading Estate and the other activities that take place there.
