Great collection of hints and tips for future success

Another great podcast series from Northern Power Women, this time focused on supporting future talent to become the very best they can. From hints about using time spent on furlough to broaden your CV and the merits that brings from an employers perspective, to advice about finding transferable skills and selling old PlayStation games to get those extra £’s needed for Uni.

Every one will take something from these bite size episodes.
