Chris, Paul & Rachel chat about People (HR, L&D, Career Coaching & Recruitment)

What do you want to be when you 'grow up'

We are back for another week of interesting conversation around people in the world of work and this week, as it is National Careers week here in the UK, we are continuing our theme of career development which has seen us cover a few areas over the past weeks including talent engagement and apprenticeships, posing the question....what do you want to be when you grow up!!

 National Careers Week promotes careers guidance across the UK. National Careers Week started in 2010, after a conversation about how to help students make effective choices about their future career. 

Now National Careers Week is a celebration of all things careers guidance, which aims to support young people leaving education and moving on to employment.

 Chris hosts our chat this week, telling us how he often often starts his conversations with potential candidates. When speaking to candidates for the first time, regardless of career journey or level of role, he positions a question to get people talking that always gets a laugh...I'm keen to find out what you want to be when you grow up....and most answer the same way....I am not quite sure I know!

 As always, our conversations jump around and we cover a range of subjects which include..

  • The growing theme of non linear careers are now meaning the journey is always different
  • Careers should always be evolving, how have companies change to adapt to this
  • Some plan whilst others meander
  • Thought diversity is essential in every business, we should remember this when hiring
  • Should you let people leave as a way of them learning and welcome them back in the future?

 So we pose this questions....What type of career planner are you and is there a right way to do things??
