Career Workshops

When you are looking to make a change in your life, having a good network of social support can help you make the transition all the easier.

At a Career Workshop you can meet others in a similar situation to you, whether looking to return to work after maternity leave or a longer break, during a redundancy process or planning a new career. While learning more about your skills, strengths, interests, values, motivation and goals you can build your confidence to move forward and support and encourages others at the same time. By building connections you not only increase your social support for your immediate change but for the ups and downs you encounter further on in your career.

 Career Workshops can be tailored and designed around a particular company or group's needs, whether outplacement or personal development, or you can book onto one that suits your individual needs.
