Careers and Redundancy Support

What impresses me greatly is the personalised service which is offered by the Change Key Partnership. I felt that I was treated as a person, not as an object to be processed and pushed out of the door to make way for the next client.

Until recently, I was working as a software professional in a commercial environment. My specialism was developing traditional applications suitable for running on IBM mainframes. As a result of companies sending a progressively increasing proportion of this type of work to low wage economies to save money, I was made redundant in the autumn of 2008 with a nearly obsolete skill set. My future looked bleak: there was fierce competition for work related to my skill set, and for the vast majority of software development jobs, companies demanded experience of technical skills which I did not have.

I needed careers advice of the highest possible quality to show me the way forward. A friend recommended the Change Key Partnership, affirming that the quality of service and customer care was well worth the price. After some deliberation, I felt that hiring the services of the Change Key Partnership would be an effective means of finding the way out of the predicament which I was in.

With their help, it became apparent that I would do well to train and seek work as a web designer or web developer. Which much careful planning and their encouragement, I applied to study for a Masters in Web Development at Edge Hill University and was accepted for the course. I am here now, bringing to the end of what is a very challenging academic year. I am acquiring new skills in the art of web site design and development which will render me much more marketable than when I was made redundant.

What impresses me greatly is the personalised service which is offered by the Change Key Partnership. I felt that I was treated as a person, not as an object to be processed and pushed out of the door to make way for the next client. A ‘one size fits all' approach of treating every client alike does not apply here! Furthermore, this Partnership is still interested in the progress which I am making towards obtaining my Masters, and as a result of this, obtaining employment.

I look forward to continuing my relationship with this Partnership until well into my new employment and beyond.
