Career Change


Would you like personal support from an experienced coach who can help you create and navigate ways to make it happen so that you make confident, assured work-related changes that work for you, alongside your family responsibilities and life priorities?

If so, you need our Spotlight on Your Career Coaching programme.

You’ll get personal coaching sessions (usually via Zoom – so your location is no problem) to help you successfully plan, prepare and put into action your career changes PLUS resources and follow-up to help you overcome any barriers and create your future working life.


Whether you want to explore possibilities, move into a completely different field of work, return to education or training, prepare for a step up the ladder to a more senior role, move on from redundancy or change roles we know how daunting making big (or small) decisions about your career can be and how much energy they need to be successful.



As a non-profit making social enterprise we keep our charges as low as we can, certainly lower than career coaches.  The Programme is an investment in your future and we find that clients using our services make career decisions they are happy with and make effective changes to their working life.

“I attended three career coaching sessions with Career-Mums, after being made redundant whilst on maternity leave. The one-to-one time was very valuable to get my career on track. I was provided assistance with structuring and phrasing my CV, revising my LinkedIn profile and also suggested contacts that I could reach out to. I quickly found a new senior level part-time job as a result.”
