Career Development

Wanting help to get your career moving but not sure where to start? The Women’s Organisation offer expert advice, skills training, and career development opportunities to help you to realise your career ambition.  Everyone’s needs and journey are different, and our team are here to create a pathway that meets your needs.  Whether you are just starting your employment journey or wanting to move forward and strengthen your leadership profile, we would love to support you to create the change you are looking for.

Starting at the Beginning

If you aren’t in paid employment at the moment, but are keen to move towards that goal, our team are here to help!  Whether lack of confidence, money worries, or other things are making it more difficult we can help you to understand how to tackle these issues. Or perhaps you feel your CV, application or interview technique are not bringing you the right opportunities. Whatever your career development need, we can help you build a toolkit to get you to the next step along your journey.

  • Exploring Self-Employment

Once you have built your confidence if you want to explore creating your own job through self-employment our team can help.

Whether you are registered as unemployed, or economically inactive (not in paid employment so perhaps volunteering, student, retired, full time carer, home maker or something else), we would love to help you move forward to your next step.  Visit our events page for latest dates or contact our team via hello@thewo.org.uk or 0151 706 8111 to chat about your needs.

We also work in partnership with other organisations within the Liverpool City Region to offer targeted support based on need. Find out more about this by visiting our Directions and New Horizons pages.
