Helping you get on in work and life

The National Careers Service provides personalised careers information, advice and guidance services to all adults via individual and group face-to-face sessions, over the telephone, through digital and social media platforms.

Adviza is the Prime Contractor for the South West and Oxfordshire Region covering Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Bristol, Bath, Swindon, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire.   See our Labour Market Information (LMI) pages for up-to-date information about employers, sectors and skills gaps in your local area.

Our qualified careers advisers support you to: 

  • Identify your skills
  • Explore your career options
  • Search for jobs, courses and training
  • Understand the job market
  • Develop an action plan
  • Write a CV to impress employers
  • Succeed at interviews
  • Build your confidence

A helpline is available (telephone, webchat, email and text message) for anyone aged 13 and over.  Adults aged 19+ (or aged 18 if not in education, employment or training) needing more support may be eligible for a free, face-to-face appointment in Jobcentre Plus offices and a range of community venues.
