Why are we here?
49% of people say that the biggest challenge when changing careers is not knowing what it’s really like to work at a company.
60% of people in the UK want to change jobs but feel held back by lack of money and skills.
Lack of confidence is one of the biggest barriers preventing people who've taken a career break (typically mums who've taken time off to raise children).
1 in 4 people don't like or hate their jobs
Most jobs which offer retraining or which accept you are starting over are aimed at graduates or apprenticeships. There is very little practical help for people in their 40's, 50's 60's and older to start over and do something new.
None of this sounds good and we're on a mission to change that. Work is such an important part of what we do - and we believe work can be stimulating, meaningful, challenging and ultimately can add huge value to your life.
You can't always control others, but you can control your own environment, so most of the opportunities featured on our website are offered by people who've done exactly this: they've transitioned into new careers by doing their own thing. They know what it takes and they can save you time, money, heartache and headaches. We've saved people spending millions on hotels they didn't want, breweries they couldn't run, years retraining for jobs they wouldn't like or spending £thousands on courses which wouldn't teach them the reality of the jobs they'd be able to get in the end.
This is not coaching. Job shadowing provides real and hands on exposure and networking within your specific sector to give you real and meaningful data on which to make arguably one of the most important decisions of your life.
