The competing demands and hustle and bustle of everyday life can make it hard to take a step back and reflect on where your career is going; or to update your CV, or prepare for promotion, or investigate returning to the workplace after a career break, for example. Whatever your situation, if you find yourself in need of some objective and bespoke guidance, advice or support, then our one-to-one career clinics are here for you. They are usually around an hour in duration. We are flexible in our approach to scheduling, and appointments can be in person at our Edinburgh office or via Skype or telephone. Our free clinics give you the time and space to focus on working on your career, not just in it.
Career clinics are provided free of charge.
To be eligible you must:
Identify as a woman
Be living in Scotland
Hold a qualification in a science, engineering, technology or built environment subject, be working in a technical role within these fields or be looking to return to work in these sectors
Students: as career clinic availability is limited, we would ask that you first direct any enquiries to your university or college careers service. They will be able to provide in depth subject specific careers guidance. Following this, should you still require further support, please fill in the application form above.
If you are interested in arranging a career clinic, please complete our quick and easy application form, and we’ll get back to you.
“I felt the adviser had made a superb effort to understand my situation and had helpful advice right from the outset.“
“The session was very useful: it helped me crystallize my idea.”
“So I started from a position where I felt judged, and that I wasn’t contributing anything. But after the session I got to thinking that I’ve done a lot that’s of value. I feel a bit more positive. It’s changed my mind set from ‘I haven’t done and I can’t do’ to ‘I have done things and I can do things. I can do anything I put my mind to’.”
We are extremely sad at the passing of Katherine Johnson, but glad to know of her huge contributions towards NASA, computing and the first moon walk. The voices of women in STEM (especially BME women) go largely unseen, together let's make this change. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2020/feb/24/katherine-johnson-obituary
