Career Change Coaching

Our career coaching is available to support with a career change as well as redundancy. We offer a comprehensive career change coaching programme to support you make your next career move. Our career coaches will help you focus on your career goals and career development plan to make sure you know what you want, what is achievable and what you need to improve on.

Our career change coaching helps you to make informed choices and manage change. Review your current skills and knowledge, look at transferable skills and further required training and the potential pathways to achieve the required further skills and training. This can include checking the viability of internships and work trials.

Our career change coaching thoroughly reviews your opportunities of utilising even less obvious transferable skills to your best advantage and evaluates your past experience and measures your competencies. We can help you assess your career prospects including a skills inventory and help devise a transparent career action plan.
