about Ad astra Career Management

“The greatest thing a man can do in this world is to make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given him. This is success, and there is no other.”

Orison Swett Marden

Ad astra is a career management consultancy which provides practical and positive career support.

For many people, the time they spend at work is a fulfilling and rewarding experience. For others, this isn’t the case. At different times, they experience dissatisfaction and seek support.

The following describes some of the people we’ve helped:

  • people in mid life whose work experience has come to feel like a treadmill, even though they might be experiencing success.
  • young people who feel that they've ground to a halt in terms of career, sometimes before they’ve really got a foothold in the workplace.
  • those who find themselves facing redundancy.
  • people who are experiencing a lack of ‘fit’ with their team or organisation, but know they have plenty to offer.
  • managers who want to support their team in making career choices, but don’t feel equipped to have those conversations.
  • people who want to follow their dream.
  • people who are unsure of their capability or aptitude for particular careers.
  • managers who want their team to work together better, through understanding each others strengths and shortcomings.
  • people who just don't know how to navigate the jobs marketplace.
  • people who need help in marketing themselves, either within or outside their organisation.
  • people who want a career in career work, but don’t know how to go about it.
  • graduates who have just qualified and need a steer to get them on the right career path

Ad astra has supported people in all those situations to find a way through the confusion towards a more satisfying career.

We work with individuals and with organisations with the same aim – of finding that fulfilling experience at work.

Our approach is to enable people to evaluate, understand and maximise their personal resources and the opportunities around them, in order to gain greater fulfilment in their work and life experiences.

We do this through:

  • creating and/or enhancing self awareness.
  • understanding and developing opportunity awareness.
  • increasing decision-making skills.
  • developing the skills needed to drive life and career.
