Careers Advisers & Digital Careers Advisers
Careers advisers carry out in-depth assessments of their customers’ skills, experience, interests, personal style and ambitions to create an individual action plan that details the steps the customer needs to take to reach their career goals.
Every day is different as you’ll carry out appointments with new customers, check in on how your existing customers are doing, link in with your colleagues to share information on new opportunities and network with external stakeholders to drum up business.
You'll work with all different kinds of people with different needs, including customers who may have been out of work for a long time, who have health conditions or disabilities, those just starting out in their career or looking for a change.
Careers Coaches work alongside Careers Advisers and their case load of National Careers Service customers in order to help them progress into suitable employment and training opportunities.
Managing a caseload of customers, you'll deliver personalised support via appropriate channels, including through social media, email, telephone, SMS, group workshops, face-to-face sessions and webinars.
You'll develop and maintain effective relationships with key partners and agencies in order to generate a flow of referral sources.
You'll also carry out associated administration work including report writing, usage of CRM system, collecting and analysing management information, evaluating service delivery and the audit and review of your own records.
