As a financial planning and wealth management firm, at Citywide Financial Partners we work with multiple generations of families, including students and young professionals. As part of our drive to help professionals and entrepreneurs make the most of their future, we’re pleased to embark on a new partnership with coaching and career specialist, CareerBud.
Financial planning is a must for creating the life you want, and coaching provides an ideal framework to help our clients determine what they want,” explains Citywide CEO, Clinton Askew. “CareerBud can also support our young clients with expert career skills training and consultancy.”
Empowering young people
CareerBud was set up to provide career coaching that empowers and encourages the younger generations to thrive. With the pandemic being part of our lives for two years, many young people have missed out on crucial aspects of career development and may lack the focus and drive to reach their potential.
The purpose of coaching is the achievement of a goal. CareerBud facilitates this through a bespoke programme of purposeful questioning and active listening, enabling young people to develop self-awareness and maximise potential.
Once a coaching client knows what they want and how to set the wheels in motion, they often need training and consulting support in developing career-specific skills”, CareerBud co-founder Abby Cox explains. “Our expert training and consultancy services provide this.”
CareerBud provides the expert career training, consultancy and coaching students and young professionals need as they embark on and develop in their careers. As well as helping the younger generation realise and achieve their career goals, this can help young people develop positive habits for their financial, physical and relationship health.
The CareerBud team are experts in the field of recruiting, managing and developing graduate and early career staff for a variety of organisations, including Bain, Allianz Insurance, GSK, NSPCC and London’s Air Ambulance.
