SKILLS PROFILES

HELPING YOU PLAN AN IMPACT-FOCUSED CAREER

Our skills profiles are intended to be used as part of a careful career plan, such as to help you decide which job types you should seek to explore next. We don’t think that everyone should try to develop these particular types of expertise; you should only do so if it makes sense in terms of your wider impact-focused career strategy, e.g. you have a good personal fit.
​​
If you’re interested in additional detail, nuance, and research, we recommend that you read the more detailed versions of our skills profiles. In these versions, the footnotes often contain further information; they aren’t just references.
