Hi, I’m Jane Barrett, co-founder of The Career Farm and co-author of “Taking charge of your career”.

I started my career in in-house recruitment (recruiting MBAs for PricewaterhouseCoopers) and retained search consultancy for blue-chip clients, private companies and start-ups across a variety of sectors including Finance, IT and FMCG.

As a recruiter it was clear to me that many well-qualified MBA and Masters candidates were poorly prepared for the interview process, and were unable to explain what they wanted and what they had to offer. This lack of preparation meant that good candidates were failing to get offers.

We founded The Career Farm to support the careers teams at Business Schools across the UK and Europe, using our 3-step “GPS” process to help students get better jobs on graduation. Over the years we’ve worked with thousands of students, originally in face-to-face workshops and more recently through our online courses.

The Bigger Picture

The work we do with Business Schools and our corporate clients helps to support “The Future of Work”, a not-for-profit initiative aligned with the UN Sustainability Goals that gives young people an opportunity to explore the jobs that will help our economies and communities meet the diverse challenges of the 21st century.

Our offices are based in the spa town of Harrogate, Yorkshire, in the north of the UK.

If you would like to know more about the services we offer to Business Schools, corporate clients and individuals, we’d love to hear from you, so please use the Contact page to get in touch.

Jane Barrett is a member of the Career Development Institute and National Institute for Career Education and Counselling and abides by their codes of conduct.
