How we help


There are three ways in which we can help you to develop talent across the organisation. 

If you are an HE organisation, we can deliver career management support to students and alumni

If you are a business or third sector organisation, we can develop career management programmes for staff as an integral part of your talent strategy

For any organisation, we can support staff facing job losses to make the transition into new employment

What is our approach?

Consider us one of the team.  You know your organisation’s needs and you know your hopes and aspirations.  We’re here to help understand your challenges and opportunities – and then work with you to find agreed ideas and solutions.  We can bring a wealth of career management experience and knowledge which means, together, we can achieve incredible ways forward.

Why us?

Alison Edmonds and Clare Hudson lead Epic Steps Careers+, both of whom have five years of executive career coaching combined with 15 years leading career management for MBA students at Alliance Manchester Business School.  Clare has led the full-time MBA programme career management service and Alison has led the full-time and part-time MBA career management service for students based in the UK and all over the world.

We appreciate the needs and demands of service provision in complex organisations with the added value of multiple stakeholder management experience.  Relationship management is second nature to us because at the root of all good services is a trusted, authentic and connected relationship with people.

And we love what we do!  Our natural energy, enthusiasm and belief reaches out across our stakeholders and enables extraordinary transformation to take place – value flows in all directions.

We can share combined strategic and practical elements of all the following.  In other words, we understand the big picture, find ways to design solutions and then deliver face-to-face value directly to individuals:

Recruiter hiring practice, requirements and preferences
Self-awareness profiling

Career management workshop series
Webinar series as an additional part of career management provision
Online resource management and delivery
Mentor programmes
Speaker programmes
External resources and networks
Major events

Our Social Impact

Career transition is the most important impact we can make for individuals.  By helping organisations to meet these needs, we can make wider impact.  We believe that we can make even more impact.

Epic Steps Careers+ delivers on the ethos of Epic Steps which combines careers with leadership and social responsibility.  Epic Steps Careers+ is proud to support Epic Steps C.I.C. in its work with school children: Epic Steps Conferences for Children which develop awareness and values around leadership, careers and social responsibility.  We believe in supporting young people to become the next generation of pioneers: a workforce of responsible decision-makers motivated to demand and drive collaborative change.


We always welcome an opportunity to listen.

You can reach us for a conversation here and we look forward to hearing about your hopes and aspirations.
