Step two: exploring what jobs you could do

There are a whole range of jobs and career opportunities that may be open to you, that you may not have thought about at this stage. Work experience can be a good opportunity to ‘dip your toe’ into the world of work!

It can be helpful to hear from other blind and partially sighted people about their work and how they got into their career.

Our employment team has a range of videos of blind and partially sighted people talking about their careers, including A career in the civil service – what’s involved and how to get into it and Using your skillset to successfully change careers with Charles Coyle. Check them out!

We also have some great Student stories and Employment stories to read on our website.
