Testimonials

Here’s what our clients say about us

“I would be understating the fact that I am fully satisfied with the services I have received to date, since I would rather say that The Career Advice Centre has exceed my expectations. My consultant helped me and guided me in identifying my needs, establishing my career goals, building a very impressive CV and cover letters, and finally coached me on improving my interview skills. Through the whole process I was able to understand and appreciate the depth and the professional approach which was adopted which, I believe is unique to The Career Advice Centre.”

Rajesh Sanghvi

“The Career Advice Centre has given me true guidance to order and formulate my thoughts and given me the strength to break with a successful and lucrative but unsatisfactory career. I highly recommend them, but keep in mind that you will still be the one providing the answers not them. There is a lot of work involved and you are the one having to do that!”

Stephanie Vietor

“I came to The Career Advice Centre because I was out of ideas regarding where to go next in my career. I was applying for positions but nothing was happening. The Career Advice Centre’s programme helped me to be objective about my skills and to make my approach to my job search more efficient. You do have to put the effort in, but I found the programme effective, and relatively inexpensive. ”

Andy Glass

“The Career Advice Centre was great from start to finish, as it helped me to help myself work out what I really wanted to do and what options were available. The beauty of The Career Advice Centre is that it provides a framework and expert guidance, but encourages you to do the hard part eg. research / homework etc and it’s through this that your eyes start to open to new possibilities. Duncan, my consultant, was invaluable and I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions. Thank you!”

Angela Terry

“Having been highly dubious about what a career adviser would be able to offer and slightly daunted by the cost, I was very impressed by The Career Advice Centre’s professionalism. My consultant’s sheer energy was inspirational and somehow, at the end of my programme, I have ended up with my perfect ‘portfolio’ career and that elusive work-life balance. Thank you!”

Step Haselden

“The programme above all gave me clarity – on the skills, knowledge and experience I have acquired in different areas of my life, as well as on my motivators, achievements and career needs. I now have more confidence in my abilities and therefore a greater belief that I will make the right career decisions in the future.”

Sandra Lilley

“I have found my experience with The Career Advice Centre to be invaluable in clearly identifying my skills and achievements. I now have a much more defined idea of what I have to offer a prospective employer and feel I can pursue my future career with confidence and enthusiasm.”

John Rich

“I contacted The Career Advice Centre because I felt that I needed a change of direction in my working life. The Career Advice Centre gave me the analysis, tools and an objective view that showed me, based on my stated aims, that I am actually already pretty well positioned. They showed me that I am suited to what I do and I should have the confidence to do it even better and gain benefit from that. I will return to The Career Advice Centre if I ever feel the need for change again as I value them as experienced, independent and personal advisors.”

Rob Meades

“The Career Advice Centre has helped me identify my life-values and skills and moreover has given me the confidence to believe that I can have a career that draws on these. I am excited by the prospect of pursuing a career that better suits my needs and feel liberated by this opportunity.”

Jessica Sudbury

“I really appreciated the opportunity to define my values, skills and career expectations with a empathetic and switched-on mentor, and then to put this self-awareness to practical use in the hunt for the next step in my career. I didn’t expect all the answers in defining my career pathway, since this is an ongoing journey, but I certainly have shaken off some of the ambiguity surrounding my next career move and I have the confidence to build up momentum going forward.”

Jemma McCowan

“I had no idea if what I was doing was the right course of career for me. All I knew was that I was thoroughly miserable and un-stretched. Thanks to The Career Advice Centre I realised I needed to stay in the same line of work but for an academic institution (or a body that required me to think, argue and challenge). But for The Career Advice Centre, I would have not had the confidence or self-knowledge to go for the new career I ended up getting: a new job with a world class university.”

Richard Jarman

“My consultant gave me invaluable advice on my career possibilities which allowed me to expand on my search for jobs and gave me the confidence to do so. I received a very personal service and was very encouraged by her quick response and feedback outside of my appointments. Thank you for all your support”

Ada Okechukwa

“My The Career Advice Centre consultant was a sounding board for my thoughts, feelings, plans, aspirations and fears. She provided moral support and valuable feedback on a huge range of different issues in my personal and professional life which all had a bearing on where I was going with my career. She helped me find my way when I was lost and frightened, and now I am on track with a job which I am delighted to have.”

Alison Tierney

” The Career Advice Centre has been valuable to me as it helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses and formulate a new plan for my future career. I could not have done this on my own!”

Lucy Wren

“I was successful in getting the role with the NHS, my new official title with the hospital is Assistant Divisional Manager – Specialist Medicine. I really appreciate all the support and guidance you provided me during the difficult time that I encountered when I was made redundant from my local authority job and I would recommend your services to anyone who was going through a similar situation that I did.”

Samantha Williams

“I contacted The Career Advice Centre because I felt that I needed a change of direction in my working life. The Career Advice Centre gave me the analysis, tools and an objective view that showed me, based on my stated aims, that I am actually already pretty well positioned. They showed me that I am suited to what I do and I should have the confidence to do it even better and gain benefit from that. I will return to The Career Advice Centre if I ever feel the need for change again as I value them as experienced, independent and personal advisors.”

Rob Meades

“I would recommend The Career Advice Centre to anyone who feels stuck in their career path. If you need to review, change or work through career options, The Career Advice Centre provides solutions and plans that work to your own unique style. The Career Advice Centre helped me focus and attract me to the job that I was looking for.”

Tazeen Ahmad

“Being new to the UK employment market The Career Advice Centre proved invaluable in transforming my existing CV into one that better suited the UK market.”

Lennard van den Hoek

“I came to the programme considering voluntary redundancy and hoping to examine alternatives. As I tackled the exercises, and in discussion with my consultant, I came to realise what I valued about my lifestyle – inside and outside work – and how important work was to me. The focus then changed to finding a way to realise some of those alternatives in work. I now have a much clearer understanding of my skills, how and why I enjoy work, and a plan of what to do next. This has already proved useful, and I expect it to continue to be so. The programme proved to be excellent, especially in adapting to the change of focus.”

Ian Hayes

“When I came to The Career Advice Centre I had no sense of direction but I knew I didn’t like my current job. By structuring my achievements to date, I found out my strengths and motivations, and discovered an area I wanted to go to rather than a sector I wanted to run away from.”

Arnaud Thiriet

“Being made redundant after 15 years with the same employer, I didn’t know where to start to rethink my working life. The Career Advice Centre changed everything. My adviser led me gently but firmly through the structured programme. I needed to identify my work and home life priorities and what new career paths to consider. He nursed my self-confidence back into life and gave me a set of practical tools including CV writing and handling interviews, which are helping me towards a new and exciting future at work”
