Be Career Confident. Chamber of Commerce members Ruth Forster (Lichfield & Tamworth Chamber) and Charlotte Sykes (South Northants Chamber) collaborate together and launch a free weekly Crowdcast event to support individuals with their careers.

Coronavirus has sent the world in to a spin and careers support has become even more important – supporting students feeling lost, assisting those furloughed or redundant. In response to this heightened need for support Ruth and Charlotte, who have been working together for the past 7 years wanted to do more and help as many people as they could. With only so many hours in the day for personal careers support the answer was to create easy to access, online workshops.

Launched on 2 July 2020 the Be Career Confident. series will run weekly on Crowdcast, each session is a 30 minute workshop where individuals can join in or simply observe as Ruth and Charlotte share their experience, advice and knowledge enabling people to take control of their career journey through motivation and action based learning.

Sessions include:

  • Motivation whilst job seeking
  • How to find the RIGHT job
  • CV’s – how to get your message across
  • Networking – the new way

A full list of all sessions which are running until 3rd September 2020 can be found here

After working together delivering business workshops, as well as supporting schools delivering Gatsby Benchmarks, creating a series of online workshops to support redundant workers was a natural sit for us. Ultimately, we want to use our experience to help people become Career Confident.
