Governance & Advisory Group
Meet the people who provide independent governance to Career Seekerssupport our service development.



Career Seekers Direct is the subject of annual independent reviews in relation to the quality standards they have i.e. Matrix Standard and NCFE centre approval. I provide an additional level of independent governance and due diligence on a more frequent basis.  I review and report on all aspects of Career Seekers Direct's business including Safeguarding, operational performance and service delivery.
