Is Refreshing a Career the website for me?
There are many reasons why people may have taken a significant period of time out of employment, and regardless of what those reasons are, everybody is starting afresh from the same position when looking at potential opportunities for getting back into work. For employers, targeting people who have been out of employment for a period of time, or who are looking to change careers, can provide benefits in finding jobseekers who are eager to learn, keen to progress and can bring transferrable skills.
Have you been in the same job for a number of years and feel like you need a change? 30% of the nation’s workforce will change their job or career every 12 months. That is an awful lot of people, so inevitably there is a feeling of trepidation or self-doubt about leaping into such a competitive environment. It can be a daunting prospect, but it needn’t be. Nevertheless, we appreciate that you need a bit of help, so we have developed this site to start you off on your job search by putting you in touch with people, resources and organisations who understand your position.
Across the site you will find information, tools and other guidance all aimed at jobseekers in your situation, and employers looking for people seeking a fresh start. The average person will change their career five to seven times during their working life, so it makes perfect sense for employers to be taking specific steps to target these people.
