What people say

Case Study

The Office for National Statistic contacted Prospects for help in relocating 850 staff from Islington to Wales. Prospects delivered workshops on CV writing, interviews and job hunting techniques for ONS staff, many were lifelong civil servants. They were so well received that we were recommended to other government departments and ran similar workshops for the Ministry of Justice.
