However, this is where Career Consultants is different. We begin by offering you free career and job hunting advice on-line.

Why is a career in London different to other places?
Firstly, London is better described as loads of towns grouped into one big City. Each town or Borough has its own unique style and attractions. When asked to describe a London job, most people describe the image of people walking over London Bridge to the financial area and square mile. However, contrast this with the small business boutiques of Covent Garden, or the fashion hub of Carnaby Street, Regent Street and up market New Bond Street. Then you have Fulham and Chelsea which are altogether different. Contrast this again with Camden or Chiswick. If you are young, sylish and fashionalbe, you may prefer the vintage streets of Brick Lane and Shoreditch. Perhaps you prefer the steel and glass of Canary Wharf or the quietness of Kew Gardens (home to Career Consultants Registered Office) or Primrose Hill.
Each place in London has its attractions. It is all down to personal preference and the type of business that you work for. If you are in the financial sector the financial districts are more likely to offer you the opportunities you are looking for. However, the big corporate giants of other sectors are dispersed all over this great City. For instance, you wouldn’t expect Sony Playstation’s head office to be at the Entrance to Carnaby Street or the giant of GSK towering over the Chiswick flyover in Brentford.
So London is made up of different places with different attractions for you and your career. To make sound career choices and decisions, it is, therefore, wise to choose a career advice service that understands the city well.
