      There is little known about the careers workforce in the UK. This research focuses on developing a better understanding of who chooses to become a career development practitioner, their motivation, the transferable skills they bring with them and how they see their career developing. Although respondents represent a snapshot of practitioners it identified that the workforce is female, ageing and lacks diversity. Respondents felt their was a lack of career development within the sector with mainly management available for progression.
