Careers advice

We've done the work to save you the bother!

In this section we bring together some of the best advice and guidance from a range of different sources to help you with different stages of job hunting. 

Whether you're working out how to fill out an application form, looking to update your CV, learn how to write a good cover letter, or want help with preparing for an interview, you should find something really useful here. And if you would like to get straight on with job hunting you can search UK Christian jobs and sign up for job alerts to get the latest relevant Christian jobs sent straight to your inbox.

If you're looking for tools to help you to objectively assess your interests, skills and values and think about the careers you could be well suited to, check out our links to online careers tests.

If you are looking for specific one-to-one support you might like to consider Options Coaching - a service provided by professional Christian coaches to help you  discover, determine, develop or resolve issues concerned with your calling and life of service and work.

However, before you start, it's worth having a quick read of Sanctification in the Job Hunt. Who am I if I am unemployed? How do I see myself when someone says I’m not good enough? How can I find contentment amongst competition, joy amidst rejection, and peace amidst uncertainty? Renee Tan explores these questions of worth, security and identity.
