Description

Rescheduled from 6th December

Career Transition

Are you at a transition point in your career? It might be your first “proper” job since graduating, you might have to re-think your options following redundancy, you might be mid career and fancy a change or you may be thinking about retiring from paid employment. Each of these stages brings different challenges and we are offering you the chance to speak to experts in each of these transition phases.

MARY HOLLAND from Developing Young Workforce

BERNADETTE HAMPTON and DEREK PETRIE from Right Management

SUSAN GORDON, Director, Leith Gordon Ltd, MSc, FCIPD, MA (Hons)

We won’t be offering specific appointments on the night but you will have the opportunity to speak to one or all of the representatives in a “speed dating” type format.

You can also use this event to network with individuals who are in a similar situation to yourself. There will also be branch representatives present who you can speak to about branch events and volunteering. As its early December we will have mince pies on offer in addition to teas and coffee and a cash bar will be in operation for those who wish partake.
