Career Bio: Hi! My name is Saffron Fidgett and I am the founder of Career Circus Ltd. I started Career Circus with a mission to shake up career development for the younger workforce by making it affordable, fun and relevant to the younger workforce. As a twenty-something young professional myself, I have first-hand experience of the need to deliver and prove myself across a variety of sectors and as an effective manager. There have been ups and downs, it has been hard work, and I have learnt a hell of a lot! But most of all I enjoy what I do and I have fun “Your Career. Your Life” – my philosophy for Career Circus.
As an advocate for lifelong learning, over the last few years I have trained as a career coach, recruiter, NLP practitioner, career adviser & completed postgraduate courses in career development, talent management, psychology, management & leadership. Coupled with working in the field of graduate recruitment, university careers advice and, learning & development means I have the perspective of both sides of the talent agenda. I do a lot of networking, researching and I read widely in the field to ensure I keep on top of trends. I like to think I practise what I preach!
