According to a recent poll, more than half of UK workers are ‘not sure’ if they’re in the right career.

But it’s one thing knowing you’re not fully fired up about your work, and a whole other challenge to work out what is the right career for you.

Over the last 8 years, we’ve helped thousands of people transition into new areas of work, teaching them the tools, tactics, and mindsets that are needed for a 21st-century career change. We know how challenging and daunting it can be to face the question of “if not this, then what?” but we’ve seen what works and will share our top advice in this event to help you figure it out for yourself. On November 8th, we’re teaming up with Coding school General Assembly for a special event to will help you start teasing out ideas on what could be exciting work for you and help you identify the challenges currently holding you back from making a move into something new.

We’ll delve into personal fulfillment, proactive experiments, and taking control of the direction your career is heading, as well as sharing tactics for how to explore new areas of interest.


We will provide you with tools and ideas to help you clear the fog and overwhelm of figuring out to do with your career, and help you take small practical steps towards finding the right path

The event covers the following:

– What isn’t working for me in my career?

– What type of life do I want to lead?

– How do I work out what I really want to do?

– How do I come up with a plan that excites me?

This event will be run by
