Looking for a new job?  Finding it tough?

  • Could you tell a prospective employer about yourself and why they should employ you in just one minute?
  • Could you handle an asynchronous video interview or an array of psychometric testing now used by many recruiters?
  • How do you respond to being asked what your greatest weakness is?

Difficult isn’t it?  With low levels of unemployment and employers crying out for staff,  you would have thought that finding a job would be a doddle. But finding and applying for the right job in the 21st century can be tough.  If you are middle-aged, and having to look for a new position, in the wake of an employer closing, relocating or reorganising, it can be even worse. Redundancy can be as traumatic as coping with bereavement or divorce.  Job hunting can be challenging and confusing

Since 2006, funded by local authorities, Parish Councils and a charity foundation, Careers Springboard Bracknell has succeeded in helping executives, managers and professionals back into work.  Practically-focused presentations by volunteers with a wide range of experience at senior levels, and as consultants, cover many topics relevant to finding a new role with confidence.

ASCOT ORGAN and KEYBOARD CLUB is a friendly club that meets monthly. It holds a mixture of professional and amateur nights and the occasional charity evening. This not only raises money for good causes, but also promotes the club. The club tries to give younger artistes just starting on the circuit a chance as well as the old favourites. As you will see from our concert diary they have a good selection of top artistes covering many styles of music. Refreshments are included in the entrance fee so why not go along and hear some of the best professional organists play - or just listen to some of the local talent you didn't know existed!
Quite a few of our members have their own organs or keyboards. All try to help each other where possible, and encourage each other to play at our amateur evenings, when players can bring along their own instruments (organs by prior arrangement with the Chairman) or play the club organ, a Technics GA1. A light hearted competition is held annually and a cup presented to the most improved player. The club is always glad to welcome amateur players to show off their talents. Their family, friends and all those wishing to have an evening of live music in friendly surroundings are also welcome at all meetings. This includes members of other clubs who are visiting the area.

In July the club holds a summer social with a fish & chip supper and a very relaxed atmosphere. This gives members who have not played before the chance to "have-a-go" with less pressure.
Sadly, long-standing and very popular Club Chairman, Tony Reed, died in March 2014.  His widow, Anne Reed, has been asked to take over as Chairman  and she has taken up the post,  working hard to continue the Club's reputation as one of the friendliest and welcoming  in the country.

The club usually meets on the third Friday of the month at 8pm. Subscription: £10; Concerts: Members admission: £5.00 , Visitors admission: £6.00 . Amateur Nights: Members: £3,  Visitors : £4.
