The average british worker will spend more than 84,000 hours at work throughout their lifetime. It is therefore essential that employees get as much out of the working experience as they can. In the 21st century economy a job should not just have to be a job, it should be a career for all those who want a career. The workplace now offers so much opportunity. Today new roles evolve constantly and as such employers are under increased pressure to create agile workplaces and workforces and effective career management is at the heart of this agility.
360 Career Frameworks are a crucial step in this plan and without it, colleagues will never be fully engaged or truly understood at work. Additionally employers may never unlock full talent and potential. Through our various talent and career management services we work with you to create a culture and mindset by supporting your people throughout their employment journey. From successful on-boarding, goal focused career coaching, innovative talent retention strategies and when appropriate, preparation for their release. All of these interventions are supported by our assessment services team.
As every business is different all our programmes are bespoke to you. We will work with you to understand how to unlock the potential within your organisation, determine what you need, how we can help, then create a structured plan to smoothly implement the strategy into your business. Crucially we will also select a CDS team that will bring the most to your organisation.

“My CDS coach has helped me understand many issues that were affecting my work and personal life to the point now where I am much happier and delivering results I didn’t think were possible. She is practical and resourceful as well as caring and inspiring and I would, without hesitation, recommend her to help anyone who was looking for coach.”Senior Programme Manager – Energy Sector
“My CDS coach provided me with the opportunity to bounce ideas around, acting as an off-the-wall sparring partner to generate ideas which led to “eureka moments” post the session. I valued the confidential, independent, non-judgemental nature of the conversations.”Head of Technology – Finance Sector
“I enjoyed the whole coaching journey. From the initial meeting where I was asked to articulate where I thought I was in terms of my current working environment and the challenges I was facing – with too many plates spinning, right through to my current role and work life balance. The opportunity to share my experiences in an open and safe environment without judgement was hugely beneficial.”Senior Leader – Finance Sector
