Career Development Consultation

If you are at a point in your career where you are questioning what to do next, or if you are ‘stuck’ and feel unable to make a career decision, we’re here to help. Career development consultations allow individuals to explore and discover future career possibilities and to design rewarding lives for themselves that honour their unique values. Career decisions have a significant impact on our wellbeing and on our financial health.  Effective career decisions happen when your self-knowledge is enhanced through consultation with a qualified career professional.

Job Search Strategy Consultation

Looking for a job is often a daunting process. If you are currently looking for work and are frustrated with your lack of progress, or if you are facing the challenge of being made redundant and need to find work quickly, our consultants will coach you through the job search process and work with you to reach the outcome you want. We offer a range of services and encourage you to choose the services that best meet your needs.

Our services allow you to activate best practices when applying for jobs, including tools to overcome potential obstacles to employment. We will work with you to develop your online presence, your CV and cover letter, and we will help you to prepare for job interviews so you feel confident in all aspects of your job search process.
