Help throughout your career's ups and downs
LionHeart has expanded the range of support on offer to people who not only find themselves out of work but who may be looking to make changes in their working lives for whatever reason.
We have a range of external partners who can offer free specialist support if you find yourself out of the workplace due to job loss or redundancy, or having taken a career break to raise a family, for example.
But many people who don’t fit into those criteria may also benefit from having a little extra support when it comes to job hunting in a crowded market, or taking a career in a slightly different direction.
Our experienced support officers are all trained in offering a coaching approach to people looking to make changes in their working lives. We can help with things like brushing up on your CV or simply be a sounding board to talk things through if you find yourself preparing for an important interview or weighing up different options.
To be a strong candidate in today’s job market, you may need to upgrade your job hunting techniques: make use of social media including LinkedIn, and use company websites and social media profiles to research the organisations you’re interested in working for.
You might also want to think about creating multiple versions of your CV which can be tailored to emphasise different skills and experience according to each opportunity: research shows the average boss spends just a minute reading through a CV sent in response to a job vacancy, so it makes sense to spend those precious few seconds highlighting the skills which make you a good fit for the role.
Changing jobs or taking your career in a slightly different direction can be a stressful time, so we’re excited to be able to broaden the type of work-related support we can offer regardless of people’s circumstances.
We can also offer structured coaching sessions if you feel you would benefit from one-to-one help to make changes in your life or work towards a specific goal.
