Changing Career

Finding the best fit for you!

Making smart career decisions

Changing career is a big decision.  You’re much more likely to be successful when you’re clear about what you want and why, understand your options and are realistic about what’s involved.

The good news is that there are always more options than you think, but some of them will be a better fit for you and easier to achieve than others.

Our career coaching team are specialists in helping people make positive changes in their career. They’ll help you identify and reality-check suitable options that meet your needs and enable you to be at your best at work.

    How does the Career Explorer programme work?

    You’ll be working on a one-to-one basis with one of our career change specialists throughout your programme.

    They will be asking questions to understand more about you.  We will also use career assessments through our icareercoach platform to help capture information about your strengths, motivators etc.

    Together, you will then use this information to identify suitable options and work through decisions.

    The programme also often involves discussions of how to manage your current career situation, especially if you are dealing with some difficult challenges.

    Do you only work with people from corporate backgrounds who have had a more conventional career?

    We work with people from all backgrounds, including those in the public and voluntary sector, creative professionals, academics, ex-military, those who have been running their own business as well as people wanting to return to work after a career break.  Whatever your background and career story, we’ll be happy to help
