Returning to work
A one day workshop with Kay McMahon, 19 January 2011, Bristol.
Do you know someone who needs to return to work after a career break? Perhaps they have had a baby and now need to support the family. Has their confidence waned? Maybe they’re not sure if it’s the right thing to be doing? This brand-new workshop, “Returning to work”, is supportive and caring and will help them deal with any issues and set their priorities so they know they’re doing the right thing.
A one day workshop with Jeremy Marchant, 26 January 2011, Bristol.
Do you know someone who needs to find a new job? Or are they just stuck in a rut? Wanting a more rewarding career? Making the right change of job can only happen when they know where they want to be. Our new workshop, “Where next?”, will help people brighten up their thinking and clarify goals so they can be confident that the job-search can bring rewards.
