About AS Careers

Independent professional private all age career guidance

AS Careers is an all age careers advice and guidance service. The company has been running since 2006. It is based in Norwich in Norfolk but offers services UK wide. Founded by Ann Starkie, AS Careers provide professional, independent careers advice, guidance and consultancy services.

What makes AS Careers Different?

AS Careers is a small, independent company and therefore able to provide a careers service that is tailored to your needs. You also get Ann in person and this ensure you get the best quality and expertise for your guidance needs.

We make time to find out your needs, either as an individual or organisation, giving you the opportunity to choose from a variety of options with no commitment to long term or expensive services you don’t need. AS Careers bridges the gap between services offered by government agencies and those offered by management companies, which are often expensive and not suitable for many individuals seeking careers advice or help.

AS Careers works with lots of other organisations in the area and Ann works as a consultant for other organisations to provide expert advice. This means that we are constantly keeping up to date with changes in legislation and requirements of employers.
