What our members say
Here’s what some members recently told us about their consultation.
It was helpful to have the opportunity to thoughtfully consider possible options to further my career and run ideas past someone.
After undertaking a mock interview with one of the careers advisers, I felt the advice and encouragement she gave me helped me secure an interview...and I was offered the job!
Realistic advice - not just about career progression but also taking into account personal situation (factors outside of work affecting career decisions).
