The National Careers Service provides careers information, advice, and guidance for people both in and out of work.

Delivered in a flexible way that works around your lifestyle, we provide targeted careers support that helps you identify and address any barriers to getting into, and on in work.

So whether you are out of work, currently working and just need help in making that next move, or facing redundancy and want help updating your CV, our National Careers Service team are able to help.

Our National Careers Service team can work with you in ways that fit around your lifestyle, through web-based services, a national telephone advice line and one-to-one support as and when you need it, for as long as you need it.

The service:

  • Provides personalised careers advice to help you get on in work and life, reflecting your needs and situation
  • Enables you to manage your own career and provides the appropriate level of support to meet your needs
  • Is available for adults aged 19 and over (or 18 and over if you are a Jobcentre Plus customer or in custody)
  • Allows people who require more intensive, ongoing support, to get that support on the basis of their needs

What do our customers say?

“After completing my Level 2 in Basic Plumbing Skills at college I really struggled to find work. I contacted the service for advice. My advisor helped me update my CV and gave me practical advice and guidance on where and how to search for suitable vacancies. I now have a much clearer idea of what I need to do, and feel much more positive about my future.”

Michael Evans, 19, Manchester
