Day 3: Is Edinburgh a City for Dreamers & Idealists?

We spent day 3 of #PitmanOnTour back on Castle Street, Edinburgh with a flurry of shoppers, and local workers, debating career paths and progression.

Interestingly, we are already seeing a regional trend in profile characteristics, with a majority pull towards ‘INFP’ – the result for Dreamers and Idealists. Not as fluffy as the title may suggest, this category suits those who would like to/work in roles such as: teacher, editor, writer, counsellor, report or musician, amongst many others.

We’re looking forward to seeing the outcomes in other regions over the duration of the campaign, and hope we help many make some big career steps and decisions to drive their future forward.

We’ll be back on the road again tomorrow :)

Day 2: A Van with a View – 1st Pit-Stop brakes at the foot of the Castle

Local shoppers, commuters and workers alike have spent today trialling our new free app at the first Pitman Training Career MOT Pit-stop based on Castle Street, Edinburgh.

Many were surprised at just how close our diagnostic profiling station had matched them not just to their characteristics, but their career paths or aspirational goals!

We managed to point a healthy number of onlookers in the direction of their next attainable career move, which left us with a skip in our step – looking forward to covering the length and breath of the UK.

A Van with a View – Edinburgh Castle

We’ll be back to conduct more diagnostic profiling tomorrow morning (5th September) – if you missed us today, be sure to pass by!

Day 1: Signposting Careers, Destination Edinburgh

Setting off from our HQ office in Wetherby, we enjoyed a scenic route up the A1, until we made it to our first Pit-stop location – Edinburgh.

Edinburgh this way!

We’ll be setting up bright and early on Castle Street tomorrow morning. Looking forward to meeting the Scottish masses and help to direct career paths and futures with the launch of our new, free app Career MOT!
