Be Career Confident. was created by Ruth Forster and fellow careers professional Charlotte Sykes in 2020 although they have worked collaboratively together since 2012.
Both experienced recruitment professionals who believed coaching skills made them better recruitment consultants and being good recruitment consultants made them affective career coaches. They both invested in their careers to learn more about career theory and why people make career decisions and what can impact careers. Both Ruth and Charlotte became qualified careers professionals registered with the Career Development Institute (CDI)
The COVID-19 pandemic was the catalyst to formalise their partnership, like many others they moved online to provide free, accessible content to help people who were feeling uncertain about the careers.
Initially the support was around mental wellbeing and purpose, defining how to have a happy and rewarding career moving into the practicalities of creating an impactful CV and LinkedIn profile into how to identify the right job opportunities and prepare for interviews. As the months rolled on and recruitment challenges continues it became clear their skills could help businesses identify how to support their employees alongside talent attraction and career development.
