Get up to £10 from Jobchange!

The winter is slowly arriving and so is our magical, wintertime offer. Due to massive popularity of our previous “Don’t be crabby” card, we have decided to expand our promotion and as the weather conditions are changing, we’ve replaced the good old crab with a new, fresh and cool… penguin! Well, enough of the introductions, Ladies and Gentlemen, we would like to present you with… Penguin Card!
Penguin Jobchange





How does the offer work?

All you have to do is to bring this card for your first appointment. When the advice session finishes, simply show the card at the Reception and let our super friendly Receptionist pass a £5 note straight into your hands.


How is it different from the “Don’t be crabby” card (apart from featuring these astonishing penguins?).

If you decide to take part in the IT workshop on your second appointment you can claim another £5 which brings the total amount to £10! And since it’s cash you can spend it on whatever you want: travel expenses, flowers for your mother, cheeky Nandos or even a selfie stick (According to our independent research, you will afford more than one).

What are the rules? 

There is one: You qualify only if you are our new client or if we haven’t seen you for the last 12 months. That is how we can afford to run this fantastic offer. Not to worry our existing customers, we’re thinking about exciting offers for you as well!

So don’t wait, keep your eyes open and as soon as you notice the card, grab it and dial the number on the card to make an appointment! We can’t wait to see you in Jobchange offices in Wolverhampton, Dudley, Walsall, Telford, Bridgnorth or Shrewsbury.
