Why Are We Here?

ViewVo is a job shadowing service. Our aim is to help people who want to change career make better decisions before they spend years retraining for careers they won’t like, or investing savings in starting up businesses they don’t know how to run.

There is currently no practical or meaningful way to experience a different job before making significant investments in retraining.  ViewVo is a marketplace: think Airbnb, but instead of renting out rooms in your home, job holders/business owners rent out their experience and their job to those wanting to learn more about them.

Experiential learning - such as job shadowing, is the most powerful form of career change learning there is - it makes sense to apply it to one of the most important life decisions you'll make.  

We've saved people from investing life savings in businesses they realised they wouldn't enjoy and we've given people the confidence to realise the job they're dreaming of is within their capability. Check out our testimonials and stories page for inspiring individual accounts. Seeing people embrace new challenges with the confidence to know they are making better decisions is incredibly rewarding.  

There are over 15 million people in the UK over the age of 40, 55% of whom are actively considering making a career change in the next 2 years. If you’re one of them, we’d love to help you on your journey.
