Career Portfolio

Creating multiple career opportunities.

Offering tailored advice, this program will help you decide if a portfolio career is the right decision for you and to build a transition pathway that leverages your international experience and abilities in line with your personal drivers.

Portfolio careers are fast becoming the career choice for many experienced executives who are in the midst of a global transition. Offering an extension to an already successful corporate career, a portfolio career offers you the option to pursue multiple opportunities and revenue streams whilst providing job variety, independence and lifestyle flexibility.

However establishing a successful portfolio career can be challenging and will often take longer than many anticipate. Like the ‘standard’ global career transition, many executives are challenged by a lack of visibility of the local employment market and a lack of relevant professional networks. Coupled with the need to translate your internal employee experience to a new way of working, these challenges can be compounded by the need to define your service offering and positioning to a smaller and more networked market.
