The Electrical Industries Charity has revealed that it now offers career advice via its Confidential Helpline.
Working with a leading provider of interactive online career management, the service utilises a ‘work friend’ portal which has a wealth of audio, video and written material together with tools to help get more out of the site, the EIC says. The Charity’s Helpline Advisors can also provide access to an individual telephone career coach for three months to help find a career that suits both your skills and your personality.
Operations manager Jill Nadolski commented: “There are a number of reasons why people use this service – perhaps you have recently been made redundant or you are returning to work after some time out, or maybe you just need a bit of advice about what opportunities are available to you. Whatever the reason, our Helpline Advisors will put you in touch with someone who can offer confidential and impartial advice about how to manage your career. They understand that today’s jobs place a greater demand on skills and qualifications and they are there to help you make the right decisions about learning and development and the impact they will have on your future career.
“This is a great resource if you do need help with career decisions and planning because it can support you in reviewing your skills and abilities and help to develop new goals. More importantly it can provide the motivation to help you look ahead to a brighter future in a job that you enjoy.”
Those looking for information about that next step in their career or simply those in need of some advice about completing applications forms and attending interviews can contact the Confidential Helpline on 0800 652 1618.
