Case Study – Career Change at 50

Siobhan Beatty had spent 22 years working for a financial services company.  She had set up the HR department and then achieve groundbreaking work in the area of CSR. However, the difficult economic climate meant that her role was made redundant. This left Siobhan, aged 52, wondering what she could do that would give her the creativity and satisfaction of her previous job. She wanted to do something completely different but wasn’t sure if she was brave enough.

“I found it incredibly empowering working with Personal Career Management. I had a vision of becoming a teacher but I needed someone to interrogate me to see whether I was being practical. I was over 50, with three children and other responsibilities so I knew it was a big lifestyle change and a risk. My career coach really helped me to think this through and make sure it was right for me. I’m now teaching English and loving it.”
