Knowing what steps to take to get where you want to be can sometimes be a daunting prospect. That’s why we are here to help make it easier with our online National Careers Service career workshops, guiding you through the process of finding a job or helping you to secure a better one.

Sometimes all you need is a little bit of inspiration and someone who knows what opportunities are available in your area. Our expert careers advisers will give you exactly that.

Week 2 Exploring careers and your local jobs market
