The market for newly qualified ACA’s is aggressive and uncompromising with a plethora of recruiters contacting candidates whether they like it or not, promoting a myriad of job opportunities
that are “absolutely right for you !!”

It’s an exciting time, you have qualified, you are receiving lots of attention, everyone wants to speak to you, the world is clearly your oyster and so this is the start of your successful career.

Right Choices

But careers are marathons and not sprints. Consistently making the right choices is often the difference between having an exciting and successful career rather than a disappointing one.

But how do you consistently make the right choices, the ones that are right for you and your career?

It’s not easy, there is so much conflicting advice.  Who can you trust, surely not a recruiter, they are only in it for their fee after all?

Reassuringly, not all recruiters are the same. Lord have over twenty years’ experience of advising and guiding careers, in fact many of our clients today were once newly qualified ACA’s. They remember looking for that impartial advice and reassurance that that they were making the right decisions for the long term, not just the short term.
