Richard Edge is the CEO and Founder of Careerships. Careerships was founded on 1st October 2020 after Richard returned to the UK following six years in the Middle East.
He always knew that he would be an entrepreneur, but his mission was to spend 15 years across sectors and countries to learn as much as he could from others, both professionally and academically (undertaking exams in different disciplines in 12 of those 15 years), before bringing that knowledge together to support others.
Careerships provides a unique partnership service to ambitious individuals, helping them progress their careers. The team specialises in “difficult moves”, usually comprising a big promotion, a change in the sector, a change in the country, or a combination of the three.
With clients across 19 countries thus far, Careerships utilise a combination of HR and Legal knowledge, a substantial professional network and the utilisation of AI to help individuals achieve or exceed their ambitions.
The team works through the candidate’s CV and their LinkedIn while helping them formulate the vision, and the strategy, grow their network, secure interviews, win interviews and negotiate salary packages. Often they stay with the individual to help maximise performance in the new role.
The long-term mission of Careerships (Careers&Relationships – because they believe people dynamics are at the core of every enjoyable career) is to make world-class career support available to everyone on the planet regardless of budget.
Currently, they provide 121 coaching for mid to senior professionals and 40 hours a month pro-bono for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Later this year, as Careerships move towards their 2nd birthday, they will be launching – Careerships Alumni, Careerships Academy and Careerships Mastermind – the start of a journey to make world-class support available for all.
