During the last half of 2013 and all through 2014 I was fortunate enough to be able to attend quite a lot of courses at the Friends Centre. They were really helpful for me as I was at a bit of a cross-roads and not sure which direction my work was going to take. I was approaching retirement age but still wanted to be involved in the business world. It was great to discover that I was not "too old" to attend courses, particularly the free ones which focussed on career and employment skills.

I also had the opportunity of a "Careers Health Check" with Eileen Campbell which lasted about an hour. Again, this was free of charge and was amazingly helpful in thinking about what I wanted to do in the future. Our meeting resulted in the production of a "Skills Action Plan". I found seeing things written down was most useful for planning my future and coming up with ideas. Finally, Eileen encouraged me to view the National Careers Service website for additional information.

I found Eileen to be very friendly, welcoming and a great listener. She quickly understood and empathised with my current situation and allowed me to talk about my dilemmas. She offered a multitude of helpful resources and helped instill me with confidence in taking control of my life and moving forward. Thank you Eileen 🙂

I am really glad I came because Eileen was really open & ready to listen and help me take action with so many ideas & options that I have. I feel the service is useful to filter through action points.
