Changing the conversation about work and cancer

Career Coaching Workbook

My work coaching sessions with Lainey gave me a real boost. I always finished the sessions feeling more positive and hopeful and came away with practical tips and helpful advice. Job hunting in the current climate is tough enough, but when you throw into the mix the lasting side effects of cancer treatment it’s even harder. Working With Cancer provides a valuable resource and the people understand what you’re going though. I would recommend the job coaching to anyone  – it will really lift you and help you find ways of getting back to work.

Working With Cancer has developed this workbook for cancer survivors and cancer carers. It has been designed for you to work through with a WWC coach or to use independently.

For people with cancer: it has been designed for anyone with cancer including those on ‘watch and wait’ regimes or with treatable but not curable cancer. What you all have in common is a desire to carry on working, explore opportunities and take on new challenges.

For cancer carers: you may have spent the last few months or years juggling work and caring responsibilities, possibly undertaking work that wasn’t your first choice but which at least paid some of the bills. Now, with your caring responsibilities at an end, you may want to do something different, perhaps more interesting or better paid. Where to start looking and how?
