About Us

About My Career Advice

My name is Harry Freedman. I’ve been a career professional for many years. I founded the highly regarded consultancy Career Energy in 2002. I left there in 2009 and set up the Career Advice Centre to create a small, personal facility for clients who take their careers seriously and are looking for a focused, effective and flexible careers advice service at a reasonable cost.

I help clients of all ages and experiences to progress their careers. Some have set off on a completely new career path, others have found new jobs in their existing fields. My support is tailored exclusively to your needs, so I don’t do one-size-fits-all solutions.

Because it is often difficult for my clients to take the time out of work to meet, I work flexibly out of locations across London. So it’s just a question of choosing one which suits you.

Our relationship together is critical in ensuring that you get the service you need. No two clients are the same and my work with you will reflect your individual needs. Making the right move- or even changing to a better career- is not difficult, but it does need professional support. Careers Advice is a process in which you need someone to help you to see yourself objectively and to reach the right decisions.

To find out what I can do for you, why not contact me now? It’s easy to do, and well worth the effort

What The Career Advice Centre Does

I’ve noticed two things about many of the clients I work with. The first is that they didn’t plan to do the job they do, they just somehow stumbled into it. The other is that they would like to find a job, or a career, to which they are better suited.

The secret to having a career which you enjoy is to understand yourself. To know, not just what your skills are, although that’s important, but also what you really care about, what matters to you, what you would like to be doing with your life. Once you are clear about that it’s so much easier to look at different career paths and decide if they might be right for you.

So the work I do with you starts by helping you to take a step back and look at yourself as objectively as you can. That process alone invariably generates a lot of new ideas.

But ideas alone are not enough. They need to be investigated; to discover what each option really looks like, where will it take you, what you would expect to get out of it, what qualifications you need, what training. It’s a thorough process. That’s why it works.

Finding the right career is one thing. Getting a job is another. You may not need help with your career planning, but you may need a new job. Getting a good job is much easier with the right contacts. So we have to work together to find the right people to talk to, say the right things, create the right messages, on your CV, in conversation, on social media and in interview.

It’s not as daunting as it sounds. Knowing what career you want and putting in place the right strategy to get a job you’ll enjoy can be fun. It’s certainly rewarding, and it will pay off. If you’d like to discuss how we may be able to help you, please call on 0845 467 4167. Or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
