On Wednesday morning JCI Manchester’s monthly breakfast briefing was hosted by legal recruitment consultancy Realm Recruit and Periscope Works, an innovative career coaching firm. The event signalled the beginning of an exciting collaboration between the two companies, bringing together the complementary, yet often separated, areas of recruitment and career management.
This month’s seminar, The Future of Work: Developing Careers and Companies in a Changing World, was delivered by Jess Wright, founder of Periscope Works. The career coach and management consultant spoke about the social, economic and technological developments taking place within the workplace, including the trends towards more flexible working, working from home and the modern concept of a work-life ‘blend’, rather than a work-life balance. Jess went on to explain how; “these changes should be first acknowledged, then embraced by both organisations and individuals.”
Having previously worked in international recruitment, Jess retrained to become a specialist in career change and transition coaching. She launched Periscope Works to help people resolve their career problems and inspire them to reach their full potential. The company uses counselling skills and personalised exercises, along with strategic planning tools, to help clients realise their ambitions and achieve their goals.
Periscope Works is now teaming up with Realm Recruit, a specialist legal recruitment consultancy based in Altrincham. Realm operate predominantly in the North West and use award-winning technology and advanced methodology to recruit talent for legal private practices.
Following the briefing, Duane Cormell, Director at Realm Recruit, said: “We are thrilled to be teaming up with Jess and Periscope Works. By adding career coaching to our repertoire, we will be able to build upon our expertise and experience in recruitment and provide candidates with a more holistic offering.”
Both Realm and Periscope are examples of pioneering companies working hard to ensure that they remain at the forefront of the constantly evolving working world. Through the implementation of fresh and unique strategies, both firms are keen to challenge traditional conventions and adapt to changes that are a result of the technological and connected world we live in. Their partnership will present both individuals and businesses with a fresh and original approach to career management.
"We are thrilled to be teaming up with Jess and Periscope Works."
