A career in career development
There are many opportunities to work in career development, from working as careers support, a careers adviser or careers leader in schools, colleges and higher education, to working in careers providers or independently as a careers coach, consultant or counsellor. There are also opportunities to move into careers education and training, from freelance training and assessor roles to working as a lecturer, researcher or policy-maker.
What unites everyone working in career development is their commitment to professional practice and desire to enable young people and adults to thrive in their careers. It is so much more than talking about jobs, it is helping individuals identify what they want from their future career, explore the pathways to achieve it and develop the career management skills that will support them throughout their lives.
