Career Development Service – for individuals

Dyslexia Scotland runs a small one to one Career Development service for dyslexic individuals who are seeking work or considering a career change.

The service is led by full time staff member Katie Carmichael, with support from 3 volunteer Career Mentors who provide one to one coaching in areas such as:

  • Understanding your strengths

  • Choosing a career path

  • Strategies for applications forms

  • Developing your CV

  • Preparing for interview

  • Accessing complementary services and opportunities to help you progress

With limited volunteer support, we are currently only able to support 8 individuals at any one time, and in only a few areas of the country.

If you would like to make an enquiry about receiving support from the Career Development Service, please submit your details through our enquiry form, or by calling our Helpline on 0344 800 84 84. We will be in touch if a volunteer becomes available.
