Our Candidates Have Come To Us From More Industries Than We Can Count

Whether you've been affected by furlough, redundancy or unemployment, or simply fancy a change in career, there is no right or wrong path into a professional career industry, and your experience up until your training will have provided you with a wealth of transferable skills you probably didn’t even know you had. If you’re coming from outside the Property, Finance and IT industries, formal training is certainly the quickest and most effective route into a career within them. Here are some other words of advice:

Decide On The Professional job You Want

Many Property, Finance & IT roles involve working directly with customers, and time and time again we hear employers say that although a candidate’s technical skills are impressive, they lack the personality or soft skills needed for the role.

So think hard about which of these skills you’ve gained in your career so far: problem solving, organising, working to deadlines, management and leadership, motivating people, making decisions, communicating clearly and keeping a positive attitude when challenged. Combine these with the technical skills you need and you could be a hot prospect for potential employers.

All Career Ace courses include extensive career support to make sure you’re job-ready. You’ll also have the help of the career support team who’ll be with you every step of the way.

Plan Out Your Next Move

A clear plan is essential. An ideal one would include: the technical training you need and how to get it, the timeline you are working to, and how much money you will want to earn upon being qualified.

Working with Career Ace means that you will have a support system in place from the word go. Even before you decide to enrol on the course, we’ll help you figure out everything from the financials to what kind of companies you’d like to work for.

Having a good degree isn't enough anymore

The Finance and IT sectors remains the hardest industries to break into at entry-level. According to the Office of National Statistics, out of all UK computer science graduates in 2018/19, only 32% found their way into an IT job within 6 months of graduation. The reason is simple. As technology and finance becomes more complex, even starting positions within the sectors require a strong set of up-to-date practical skills.

With trends and technologies moving so fast, a degree alone is often not considered enough to prepare employees for the challenges of the job. Employers are looking for specialist training, brilliant communication skills, commitment and a genuine industry passion.
