UK and London Career Advice
Maximise your talent with career advice from Career Analysts Our unique career guidance and consultancy services have helped tens of thousands of individuals to develop their careers in a positive direction to achieve long-term personal and professional fulfillment. We help individuals of every background and age group – anyone who wants to take charge of their future by looking at their current situation honestly and objectively with one of our highly qualified professional vocational advisors who can conduct a full career assessment with you. We can help at every stage of your adult life from careers advice for students making ‘A’ level choices through to strategies for retirement, as well as supporting you through key decisions and career changes such as returning to work after pregnancy, finding a civilian job after leaving the armed forces or moving forward after redundancy.
Career Analysts is one of the few career counselling services in the UK that combines counselling by fully qualified career psychologists with an extensive range of cutting edge career analysis and profiling techniques including aptitude tests and psychometric assessment. So how does it work? Initially we’ll send you a number of questionnaires to be completed before your first career counselling session – these are usually a combination of psychometric personality and Interest tests, career assessment information and general information about you. These are followed by a series of aptitude tests conducted in our offices. This kind of career testing allows us to build up a profile of your personality, your preferences and desires, interests and values, strengths and weaknesses – it’s a process which you’ll find insightful and will enable our career analysts to take their first steps in helping you to be fully engaged and focused in managing your career. After the tests you’ll spend a day with us at Career House in London; the morning is spent conducting aptitude assessment and profiling – it’s a revealing process that will disclose your strengths and abilities in a way you may not have encountered before. In the afternoon you’ll meet with a fully trained occupational psychologist who, having conducted a full career analysis of the data you have provided, will interpret the results with you in the light of your current personal circumstances, past experience and future goals. They will identify the options available to you, look at training you require, perhaps advise you to undertake career coaching, and help you to define your goals and objectives in a clearer, more focused way. You’ll receive a comprehensive written career assessment with the results of both the tests and the vocational guidance session you’ve received, documenting both the action plan you’ve created and the practical steps in developing or choosing a career that you have discussed. Our services offer a variety of solutions for different areas of career development: our career advice programmes help you when you’re unsure of the right direction; while career coaching or business coaching is there to help you progress from where you are to where you want to be. We also offer recruitment services and HR consultancy to businesses.
We find many young people of school and university age, and recent graduates are in need of the kind of rigorous career guidance that we can offer. While the education system may have given you the qualifications you need to begin choosing a career, when it comes to the process of career planning it often leaves a lot to be desired. While many of the young people who come to us are sceptical of the career analysis and profiling we undertake, including psychometric assessment and aptitude tests, the vast majority leave with an incredible insight into their own abilities, a clear vision for their own outcomes in work and life and a positive strategy for career development. Even those in an established job can benefit from our career advice – the kind of insight Career Analysts offers is invaluable for those who are looking for a career change within the industry they currently work in, or a new career in something totally different. Our vocational advisors can advise you on the training you may need to enter a different area or help you decide on that radical next step into something totally new – often aptitude tests and psychometric assessment can throw up some surprising results. Vocational guidance isn’t just useful for those starting out – many professionals come to us with very clear objectives in mind – they’re just a little stuck in trying to achieve their goals. Our career coaching and career management services can really help you move to the next level. We can help you to reflect on your skills and experience and see what you have to offer, look at future career options and frame these within your life objectives then help you develop a personal marketing campaign that puts you in charge of your career development.
Once again this programme draws on in-depth psychometric assessment, aptitude tests and career analysis followed by a session or sessions of career counselling from a fully qualified occupational psychologist. We can even help you to make the jump to being self-employed, launching your own business or just to market yourself more successfully. Career coaching or business coaching can take things one stage further, allowing you to work closely on a one-to-one basis with your coach – a vocational advisor who can offer you practical support in developing clear goals and an action plan to fulfill them, as well as helping you to build awareness, confidence and self-belief. In our experience the results can be incredible. So whether you’re starting a new career, having difficulty choosing a career path that suits you or you’re looking for vocational guidance that enables you to take charge of your career development, Career Analysts can provide practical, reliable solutions in all aspects of career change and management.
