Welcome to Refreshing a Career; the dedicated site for starting a new career or retraining.

Our aim is to help and encourage any individual looking to further their skillset or change their career at any stage of their life. We also offer advice to employers who may have been approached by a career change candidate or want to know more about the benefits of hiring an individual embarking on a new career.

We understand that a career change is a big decision & we know that whether you change your career at 30, 40 or 50, there is a lot to consider and knowing where to start is key in helping you reach your career goals.

One of the most significant benefits of choosing a new career or retraining at a later stage is the fact that there will be transferable skills that can benefit employment in a new sector. Start a new career and feel empowered, confident and happy in your dream job.

We’re here to support career change job seekers and employers to help everyone fulfil their potential.
