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 HistoryEstablished 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.
