Transform Work Life is a new collaboration between a Careers Development Institute registered practitioner and mentor and Richmond Libraries.

It will deliver a series of interactive seminars aimed at developing knowledge and understanding of your personal and professional skills, to enhance employability and to encourage potential transformation in your work and life situation.

Sessions are designed to be accessible to all, whether you are looking for your first job, a job or career changer, or a seasoned employee. They may challenge the way you think about yourself and, through reflective discussion, enable you to embark on a personal journey of discovery and change of your own design.

Sessions will take place at Richmond Old Town Hall and are free to Richmond residents.
