Why Choose Us?

"A few weeks ago, while searching for resources to develop my professional skills during my job search, I enrolled in the Reignite Your Career programme. This safe and inclusive programme provided a platform for women with diverse backgrounds to share their experiences in various industries, whilst encouraging more women to get into the construction and design industry.

Over the course of six weeks, I acquired valuable personal and professional development skills that are highly sought after by potential employers. Perhaps most importantly, I gained confidence in my abilities and what I can offer to an employer. 

As a result, I was able to secure the job I wanted and I’m looking forward to starting!

This programme has been a transformative experience, and I am eager to put what I have learned into practice. I would like to express my gratitude to Toni Eastwood OBE MBA, Bev Nickson MIEP and Lesley Craven MA for their exceptional guidance and support throughout the programme.

It was a pleasure to meet you all."????
