In­te­gra­tion of two sup­port groups

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

TWO or­gan­i­sa­tions ded­i­cated to help­ing peo­ple find work and build on their skills are com­bin­ing their re­sources.

Ca­reers Spring­board, a char­ity based in Ger­rards Cross, and GradNet, in Bea­cons­field, have merged to cre­ate one place for grad­u­ates and pro­fes­sion­als to get help with find­ing a job.

The new or­gan­i­sa­tion will re­tain the name Ca­reers Spring­board and will still be free for users.

The ser­vice is run by vol­un­teers, who work with man­agers and pro­fes­sion­als, and now grad­u­ates, and help them find paid em­ploy­ment or a change of ca­reer.

GradNet founder Bill Penn said: “I very much like the idea of GradNet grad­u­ates in­te­grat­ing into Ca­reers Spring­board job search ser­vices with recog­ni­tion of the new younger mem­ber­ship in ev­ery facet of Ca­reers Spring­board op­er­a­tions.”

Andy Low, chair­man of Ca­reers Spring­board, said: “We are de­lighted to wel­come GradNet mem­bers to Ca­reers Spring­board.

“The ad­di­tion of grad­u­ates to our group can only make us stronger and will be to the ben­e­fit of all.”

The group will meet on Mondays in St An­drew’s United Re­formed Church Hall, in Pack­horse Road, Ger­rards Cross, from 7.30pm. The ser­vice is avail­able to mem­bers across Chiltern and South Bucks.
