Career Change

Are you looking for a career change or at a career crossroads and need professional advice and support?

Statistics show that on average a person will have between 10-14 different jobs over their lifetime and around 3-4 career changes will be involved. There may be many reasons why you are contemplating a career change or wishing to explore your options. These could include:

  • Wanting to pursue an area of growing interest
  • Finding that jobs are limited in your current field
  • Poor job satisfaction and/or reward in your current role
  • Looking for more personal expression and challenge
  • Need for a role that complements personal priorities and commitments

A career change can be a viable option whether you are 30, 40, 50 or 60.

How can Personal Career Management help with your change of career?

Whether you are looking for a radical career change or a more subtle change in direction, it is essential to make sure that any move is carefully thought through. Otherwise, there is a risk that you will carry any existing dissatisfaction into your next role. Our career change consultant will help you explore your career options and ideas thoroughly, helping you make informed decisions with professional careers advice. We’ll then help you reposition yourself in the job market and persuade potential employers that you are the person to hire.

The Career Explorer programme will help you:

  • Assess your “career capital” and potential
  • Clarify and focus your priorities
  • Review your career options and generate ideas
  • Reality-test options to make sure the plans are robust
  • Make an informed decision
  • Devise a practical action plan to achieve the transition into your new role/or self-employment

As part of the programme you will:

  • Work on a one to one basis with a career change coach throughout your career transition
  • Use careers software programmes and undertake psychometrics if appropriate
  • Access comprehensive resource materials on careers, sectors, training, companies etc.
  • Be supported by a client resources manager for all of your information and research needs

Once you have completed your programme you can upgrade to our job search or start your own business programme as appropriate to help with implementing your career change plan and transitioning into your new role.
