How we can support you
Objective, confidential advice
Your first port of call should be the Chemists’ Community Fund team. We will narrow down and recommend services that will be of most help to you, based on the situation you’re experiencing.
In-house careers specialists
The qualified consultants in our Careers team offer confidential consultations and coaching on all aspects of job seeking, professional development and making difficult career decisions. As a member, this free careers service is always available to you, but a call to us will make sure that you’re looking at exactly the right information for your circumstances.
A tailored support programme
If, after talking to us, you’d like a more focused period of support, we’ll support an application for one-to-one sessions with an external local consultant. They will take the time to get to know your unique situation, and create a personal plan to get you back on track.
In some circumstances, you will be eligible for support in the shape of a one-off grant or regular funding to help with essential living costs. Our grants include Breathing Space Grants for recent graduates and Retraining Grants to enhance your employment prospects. The circumstances do not have to be extreme for us to be able to help (we assess on a case-by-case basis), so please ask if you are having difficulties. You can find more information on our financial support page.
