Jobs and Careers

You may have decided that it’s the right time for you to change your career, but you may not know where to begin. We can discuss your options with you and we can give advice and guidance on which courses might be suitable for you at Northern College and at other providers. We can also help you to write a good CV and covering letter and we can give you advice on filling in your application form. We can also signpost you to other agencies in your local area which specialise in careers advice.
