About Careers-Action

What is Careers-Action?
Careers-Action is a job search training charity providing help for managers and professionals experiencing or facing unemployment, career transition or seeking a return to work. We have brought together the professional knowledge and expertise of those who can help with specific aspects of the “executive” job search and combined it with the best practice experience of hundred’s of successful job seekers. 

Our History
Established in late 2011 as Milton Keynes Executives Action (MKEA) by Founder and Leader Melvin Hurley. Following his personal experience of management job search, outplacement consultancy training and the lack of understanding and support available to executives job seekers he set up MKEA with the participative encouragement of fellow job seeker, Simon Goldburn, and former Milton Keynes North East MP and Milton Keynes Mayor, the late Brian White. An introduction to Liz Gifford, Director at the Milton Keynes Economy and Learning partnership, resulted in a pilot programme was created to run in late 2011. Thanks to the facilitation, organisation and encouragement of Liz the pilot programme led to the operating model that continues today.

In August 2012 MKEA was formally incorporated as a Not-For-Profit Community Interest Company (company number: 8163828) with Melvin as the sole director. This enabled Milton Keynes Council to award MKEA a contract to become a Delivery Partner the Council’s Neighbourhood Employment Programme, thereby formalising the MKEA “service provision” and providing funding to help meet the operating costs of MKEA. Sadly, this ended when Government austerity cuts forced MK Council so change the job support programme.

Careers-Action was established as a registered charity in 2016 to provide training, information and support to managers, business professionals, recently qualified graduates facing or experiencing unemployment. Careers-Action is a UK Registered Learning Provider UKPRN: 10086966.

Careers-Action continues to be led by part-time volunteers. To meet our operating costs, we rely upon your donations to enable us to continue our work. Please help us by donating today.
