Careers Explorer

Helping you meet the Gatsby Benchmarks

Widely used by colleges and councils, Careers Explorer delivers impartial and evidence-based careers advice using information about the local job market. Information about careers options is delivered in an easy to understand and engaging way with links to live job vacancies.

Instead of providing static information about progression pathways, Careers Explorer offers real-time information to support decisions about sustainable careers in your local area. The wide range of information available, which is presented in a very user-friendly way, enables young people to look at the elements most relevant to them in order to make an informed decision about their next steps.
