Thinking of a Career Change?
Let Imployable open a world of opportunity in a new career
It’s no secret that over 30% of people in the UK are unhappy in their job. The prospect of changing careers is a tough one, how long will it take, how much will it cost, will I end up unemployed..? Some people know they are in the wrong career, others don’t quite know where they fit.
This is no reason to be unhappy, you may look back in years to come and wish you had made the jump for a better overall quality of life. Lets not mention the mental health issues involved around stress and unhappiness in the workplace.

The Career Transition
The what, the why and the how
With the work we are doing with education we hope that career transitions become rare, but until our work is done we want to facilitate the identification and execution of career transitions. Nobody should be unhappy in their work and nobody should suffer because of it.
Imployable gives you access to a huge range of potential careers, we show you industries and jobs and how your qualifications and experience matches in comparison to the entry level positions, if you take the i3 profiling we also show you how you fit personally in the industry. This provides the foundations for your career change and highlights what you need to have the best chance of a career change.
