From school to retirement, everyone faces uncertainty about their first or even their next job. It’s the same problem for parents, school leavers, graduates and career changers; the trick is to establish your strengths and establish who needs you and what you can offer.   

So, if you are

  • lacking motivation
  • lost direction
  • unsure about your skills and strengths
  • keen to identify your personal brand (and how to preserve it!)
  • want advice about apprenticeships, university, internships or grad schemes 
  • would like advice about what jobs would suit you
  • need help to reach a goal
  • would like to create a CV or write a covering letter
  • run through a mock interview, on the phone or face to face
