Chat with a careers adviser

Looking for careers information, or need advice and guidance to help you make informed career choices? Chat online with a professionally qualified careers adviser and get impartial advice about your career options.

Before you start

Careers webchat is available from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.

Outside of these hours, or if all advisers are busy, you can ask questions online and a careers adviser will get back to you as quickly as possible (usually within two working days).

To find out how the Careers Service gathers and safeguards your personal information, see the Careers Service’s privacy notice.

Additional information

When you begin a chat session a new browser window will open. At the end of your session, return to the website by clicking the 'exit' button.

You may notice slight time delays during the conversation while an adviser is finding out the right information for you.

When all advisers are busy, requests for webchat are kept in a queuing system. Don't open more than one window at a time. This will not shorten your wait as the web chat you opened first will be the first to be answered. Be patient during busy times.
