Don't take our word for it...
"We appointed Spalding Associates in August 2019, to enhance our careers offering within the business school, by adding value through tailored employability programmes and 1:1 coaching. The relationship has continued to develop over the last 12 months, with Jan, Marie and the Spalding team being a wonderful enhancement to our careers offering.
During lockdown the Spalding team has been flexible and innovative, by adapting 1:1 coaching sessions and also introducing a webinar series to help students taking the next steps after university. We have had some excellent feedback from students who have participated in the coaching programme and we have really valued having Spalding Associates support over the last 12 months, especially during lockdown."
