My career has spanned five years working in sales and sales management roles in Swansea and London, followed by three fruitful years based in Sydney working for the largest recruitment company in Australia & New Zealand. In June 2020, I returned to the UK to start a family. This coincided with the Covid-19 pandemic and worrying forecasts of mass unemployment. Already somewhat disillusioned with the cut-throat recruitment industry, I set myself a goal to utilise my experience and inside knowledge to help people, while at the same time being able to work for myself and support my young family.
My experience in recruitment was one with many positives. However, the frustration was always that I was unable to help more people due to the demands of the role and the industry. I realised that there are many things that people do not understand about how the recruitment process works and how difficult it is to get noticed in a competitive job market. I interviewed thousands of job seekers. Few of them understood the limitations of the recruitment process and how much more they could be doing to find employment opportunities.
I realised that a huge void of information existed. Job seekers were lacking access to the advice and support that would enable them to properly navigate the job application process. I realised that I had developed a thorough insight into the realities of the recruitment process, which most people are unable to see or understand, so could offer valuable advice and support to those seeking new employment.
Therefore, I set about designing The Employability Course. My aim has been to make it a one-stop-shop that can support someone from the time they start looking for a new job and feel like they don’t know where to start, all the way through to securing a job offer. A course that could be completed in a short period of time without sacrificing valuable information, so that people could get on with applying for jobs with a renewed sense of optimism and confidence.
I really hope that The Employability Course can be of value to people and help them achieve your goals.
