An introduction from Eva Harrison
Founder and CEO of Career Seekers Direct
Career Seekers Direct was set up in 2017 following a 30 year career in learning and development and coaching in a range of industries and business sectors. The company has grown from strength to strength. New team members have joined - broadening our range of skills and experiences and we have added more services to our portfolio enabling us to increase the client base we work with.
In 2019 we achieved the Matrix Standard which recognises the quality of our career education, information, advice and guidance services. In 2020 we became an approved NCFE and CACHE training centre which means we can now not only offer our bespoke skills training but also a wide range of formal qualifications.
The vision and combined passion we have to support clients to raise their aspirations and develop their skills is evident in everything we do.
'Professional, Quality, Knowledgeable, Supportive, Creative, Agile, and Inspirational'
Our values have been developed with our partners, who told us what it was like to work with us. These values underpin everything we do.
