Swansea Working - How do I start to make changes?

We can help you with planning so that you can reach your goals.

  • Where do I start?
  • How do I make plans and goals?
  • How do I reset my motivators?

Swansea Working staff will guide you in the right direction with free one-to-one mentoring services with our staff, or a chance to join other individuals on a similar path to your own.

Swansea Working can use development plans with you to map your journey. We can help you plan each step towards building your career, meeting your objectives and obtaining and staying in your ideal job.

Your needs will be the focus of this mentoring relationship. Aim high as we will negotiate as best we can to support you, if you show us you are committed.

The mentor will ask you to consider your career goals; these could be long-term and short-term, but they should always be SMART:






Once you have set out your long-term goals and short-term goals, your mentor will work with you to put together an action plan. Sometimes people are not 100% sure what it is they want to do and we can support you through this by understanding your values.
