I'm unhappy in my current job, but I don't know what my next step is.

More than 50% of people are known to be unhappy in their current jobs, so you’re not alone. As you get older and have more commitments (mortgage/children) it can feel like an impossible task to make a change, but it’s not. With the upcoming fourth industrial revolution there are going to be sweeping changes across all industries, so now is the perfect time to take stock and look at the path ahead. Corkscrew Thinking always starts with you as an individual, to encourage you to look deeply into who you are and your why? Our coaches, community, courses and camps will enable you to look at options and provide the support to take those courageous first steps on your exciting new journey.

I had a career before children, but now I feel lost.

No one prepares you and you’re never ready for the life changing impact of having children. You went through education to get your dream job and worked in the industry building experience, networks and competencies to have a successful career, now you’re at home with new priorities and feel like your career has stalled or maybe even going backwards. Although it might not feel it, this is a perfect time to reassess and ensure you’re next steps are the ones you want to take.  Through digitalisation of education there are more flexible ways to retrain or keep up to speed with changes in your industry, or you may even feel that this is a good time to create your own new business. Corkscrew Thinking is about looking at difficult situations and finding the positives and opportunities that arise in every situation, and then implementing new ideas through courage and self development.

I want to become my own boss.

The world of freelancers and startups will keep increasing as the world of work changes through the impact of technology with more than 50% of the population working for themselves in the next 15 years. If you have a desire to work for yourself then Corkscrew Backstage is the perfect environment to do this. We have a team dedicated to assisting you to find that perfect new business idea and the materials/experience to help you make it a reality. We find that in the majority of cases the only person stopping them launching a business is themselves, so it’s time to take a deep breath and make that first step into the world of entrepreneurship.

I have a desire to travel the world, but don't want it to impact my work opportunities.

The feeling of Wanderlust is not a new phenomenon, however, the opportunity to embrace it and wander the earth and not have it impact your career definitely is. The term digital nomad is a common term amongst Millennials and Generation Z as values switch from owning materialistic goods such as houses, cars and expensive items, switching for unique experiences. Through digitalisation and the worlds connectivity most jobs now offer flexibility and remote working. At Corkscrew we can help you discover the skills needed to balance your work with your passion to explore and can identify the type of companies and roles that will let you scratch that travel itch.

I'm worried about losing my job.

Let’s be honest, no one really knows the impact the Fourth Industrial Revolution will have, but job displacement will be anywhere between 20-50% in the next 15 years. The rise of technology and AI will impact every industry as computers take over many jobs, however, this will also have the positive affect of creating new jobs (65% of children entering education will have jobs that don’t yet exist). By joining the Career Change Studio you will become a life long learner as you understand the importance of a growth mindset, developing the skills of ‘Fast & Deep Learning’ and building a range of new technical skills making you more employable and able to thrive in the new world.
