What Next?

If you’re serious about making the right career decision and finding the job satisfaction that you deserve, you need professional help. Career Development Services has over 20 years experience as leading practitioners in the area of career development and occupational psychology.

We work with a wide range of individuals who face many challenges.

Sometimes the challenges are due to enforced circumstances such as redundancy or forced retirement. Other times we meet people in mid-career who have suddenly woken up to the realisation that this may well be what they will do for the rest of their lives and are not happy at the prospect.

We also help graduates and post-graduates who are struggling to make the transition from academic life to a genuine career. They have to find their own place in the world, know how to present themselves to achieve their goals and focus on how to succeed. Or sometimes it may be young students beginning to explore the world of work and what jobs may suit or be a best match for them.

What Clients have said

Many people whom we have helped are still employed by the same business and are extremely happy with the positions and career progressions they have experienced as a result of the work we have done with them.

“I was so impressed with the service that I then referred both of my sisters, my now husband and my cousin to Eleanor. All are now working in areas identified by the process. I cannot recommend Eleanor and her service highly enough.”

Melanie Dodds

In our experience, it is not easy to be objective about yourself and is particularly difficult when accompanied by circumstances such as redundancy.

“After working with a company for over 22 years, I was made redundant. I felt very unprepared and very unsure what lay ahead. My company offered me career coaching through Eleanor Murphy.  After just a few sessions with her, all this changed, paving the way to securing a job – and the job I wanted.”

Brendan Morgan

Our focus is self awareness, matching the right people with the right role.

We utilise a broad range of techniques and tools to help you find the job role that is right for you, providing you with the guidance, direction, skills and knowledge to make informed decisions about one of the most important moves you’ll ever make.

With our help, you can go into the workplace armed with a thorough knowledge of your key strengths and how they can be best utilised in the career that you have chosen.

You’ll have a strategy and a plan put in place to enhance your employability, with a range of proven Job Search Techniques that will help you successfully tackle the job market.

And last but not least, you’ll have the confidence and the motivation to take your career on to the next level

The bottom line is that individuals who match the job role will love what they do and will do it very well. What we do is to work with you to ensure that you get the career that is right for You.
