We work with Renovo, a specialist employment support agency, to help you with issues such as:

  • Looking for a graduate role
  • Becoming self-employed
  • Re-entering the job market after a career break
  • Breaking into a specialist field
  • Redundancy
Here are the initial services available within your membership. Contact us (details below) if you’d like to know more.

CV refresh

As part of your membership of the Institution, we can refer you to our employment coaching provider, Renovo, free of charge. Renovo can provide you with access to its online employment coaching resource, Workfriend, plus up to two hours of individual consultancy time, working with you over a three-month period. 
Renovo will use telephone, email and Skype based contact to address the areas that you feel you need help with, and you will have the opportunity to reflect on your personal goals, values and style, and align them to your skills, experience and current opportunities available to you. Your adviser will consider suitable objectives and provide positive advice about the next steps you could take, with particular emphasis on your CV content and presentation.  Click here for more details.

Self-directed support

We can provide six-month access to an online personal CV builder, psychometric tests, common interview questions and simulator facility, plus a comprehensive vacancy database. All elements are fully supported with audio and video resources to enable you to work through the modules in your own time, selecting the elements that are most appropriate to your needs.

International provision

We will endeavour to provide the above services internationally, which might involve using an equivalent local agency to deliver the same where required. This offer is subject to us being able to source a suitable provider.

Mentoring

If you’re looking for guidance in your career, need help becoming professionally registered, or could benefit from some impartial advice or someone to support and encourage you, the IMechE mentoring scheme might be more appropriate.
