Support With Getting The Job

You know it’s not enough to simply want the job – you need to compete with the rest of the work force and promote yourself as the ideal candidate.

Before getting the job, you will need to consider some important factors.

  • Have you identified the right role and sector?
  • Do you have all the necessary qualifications?
  • Is your CV perfect? Does it stand out from others?
  • Who are your potential employers?
  • Can you handle job interviews, meetings and presentations with confidence?
  • Do you have your own self-marketing strategy?

Our job-seeker support programme is designed to provide everything you need to get that job. This is not an off-the-shelf package, but a programme tailored to your very individual circumstances.

We will examine your personal and career history to date, your personal practical circumstances and your hopes for your future career.

Practical steps to land the ideal career for you

The key to getting the job – 3 things that employers are looking for:

1. Do you really want this job?

If you are not sure whether or not you really want the job it is very difficult to convince an employer that you do. Make sure you know what to do by taking one of our careers advice programmes for TeenagersTwenties or Thirty +

2. Are you capable of doing the job? Do you have the skills they need?

Are you already fully qualified for the job you are applying for or do you need further training? If you do need training have you identified the right training programme for you? Is it reasonable to ask your new employer to provide it?

3. Are you a cultural fit for the organisation? Will you interact with their team in a professional and positive way?


The employer has to feel that you will work well with the team around you. He or she doesn’t want to spend time sorting out personal differences between you and your colleagues.

Our Careers Advisors can help you plan and launch your campaign, write an exceptional CV, help you to find suitable vacancies and apply for them in the correct manner and advise on winning interview techniques to land you that ideal career.

With our assistance, you’ll be able to understand the challenges that you face and find ways to work them to your advantage.
