We are The Careers Company
Proudly driving the career success of diverse employee groups
Founded in 2021, we are a disruptor in the career development space. We know it’s no longer just about who gets into organisations but also about who achieves career success and how. We know what works.
In-person Event - What are the career realities and challenges for older workers?
This session will cover how older-workers are perceived, the growing need from them in the workplace and practical strategies for organisations on how to engage and attract them. We will be joined by two experts – Lesley Cave and Cordelia Wise who will be sharing their latest research with us. The session will be hosted by one of The Careers Company Directors – Claudia Schlipf. There is no charge for this event but as we have limited capacity at the venue I would be really grateful if you could confirm your interest at the earliest but before 10th September.Register your interest here!
What We Do and Why!
We know that diverse employees bring a wide range of skills, experiences, and perspectives to the workplace. Engaging, motivating and retaining these groups ultimately leads to increased organisational creativity, innovation, and decision making. This agenda is central to building a globally competitive economy and world- leading businesses.
However, the career success of these groups is challenged, they are often under-served and under- represented in organisations. We are committed to change that by supporting Organisational Leaders, HR, Talent, EDI and Career professionals with a world-class, evidence-based tools and processes. We are committed to professional transformation.

Sharon Cousins, Vice Principal, Newham College
“We had a fragmented approach to careers support across the college. This made it difficult to demonstrate progress against the Gatsby benchmarks and to amplify areas of good practice. The Careers Company team supported us in creating a holistic career strategy. They started with data, interviewing over 20 stakeholders to ensure all voices were heard. They then brought different teams across the college together to develop framework for our new strategy. Finally, they partnered with the strategy implementation team so they felt supported. We are almost 18 months on now and have a “Good” OFSTED rating under our belts. Thank you to Meena and the team.“
“What does it take to be a good line manager? Claudia from the Careers Company helped our Jaza
Line Managers reflect on this and equip us with tools and tips on how to do this better. A line
manager has a long list of key responsibilities, but one of the most important one is having
meaningful 1v1s, how do you as a manager balance listening with holding your direct reports
accountable for delivery against their goals? How do you balance coaching with directing? These
were some of the things Claudia trained us on. The sessions were insightful, tailored to our company
and managers' needs, and we left with tips and tools we could immediately apply.”
