Who are Our Mentors?

Our mentors are people who have decided that they want to find work for themselves, on their own terms, and have gone on to create successful businesses, or to work successfully as well-paid contractors. In this way, they have already done the work and are ready to help you.

They know it can be difficult to know where to start, and that you don’t know what you don’t know — they’ve done the hard yards already and are there to give you a helping hand. One that isn’t just theoretical, either, but practical and genuinely helpful.

If you’ve been out of the workforce for a while, for whatever reasons, your confidence can be at a low ebb.

The Career Academy Program is designed for those people who have been out of the workforce for several years, perhaps while caring for growing children, or elderly or sick relatives.

This can be a very trying time as you search for meaning in the workplace after a long time away and involves decisions about what YOU want, as well as what is available in the job market, and within the hours enabling you to continue to meet current commitments. Or perhaps you are keen to explore opportunities for starting your own business.

Our Career Academy Program provides a thorough guide that will help you gain clarity, confidence and find employment again — either in the workforce, working for someone else, or for yourself.
