Now I strive for big opportunities in my career

Now I strive for big opportunities in my career.

Lucy Cocoran from Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College, a nominee for Career Ready’s Sir Win Bischoff Award, talks about how her time on the Career Ready programme has helped her develop the skills, confidence and qualities needed to kick-start a successful future.

I never used to do anything out of my comfort zone and I was extremely shy with no ambition or goals before I joined Career Ready. Being involved with programme has really helped me to grow as a person in that it has made me much more confident and stretched my ambitions, and enabled me to improve my communication and presentation skills.

Without the internship opportunity at RBS, which Career Ready provided me with, and the support of Mathew – my mentor from the Royal Mail, I wouldn’t be in the position I am in today or have actual career goals.
