Biographical Info

Sinéad McCartan established Career Assist in July 2018, having previously named the business Application Assist when it was initially set up in July 2009. The aim of Career Assist is to help clients achieve career success through the completion of Job Applications, compilation of a CV, Cover Letter or LinkedIn Profile, Job Interview Preparation, UCAS Personal Statement service or Careers Advice. Other services include; Workshops delivered to schools and community groups, Free CV Review and a Dedicated Job Search service.

Based in Draperstown, Career Assist is at the heart of Mid-Ulster so is within easy travelling distance for clients who live across Northern Ireland. However, our services can be accessed from anywhere in the world as we believe distance should be no object. Consultations can be carried out by phone, e-mail or Skype and printed copies can be posted to clients Royal Mail First Class Signed For (chargeable).


Having previously worked as a Post-Primary Teacher and prior to that a Journalist, I thoroughly enjoy my current career as it enables me to help people who want to be helped to achieve career success. As a Teacher, it was disheartening when not everyone wanted to learn, now I’m doing what I love and helping people achieve career success at the same time. It’s like winning the lottery when a client tells me “I got that job”, “I got into Uni” “I couldn’t have done it without your help.”


People find it hard to talk about themselves and essentially sell themselves to an employer. I find clients unique selling points and put them on paper for employers/ universities to read. With a 100% success rate in everything Career Assist does, you are guaranteed a return on your career investment. After all, we spend most of our days at work, so it’s important to love your job and you’ll never have to work a day in your life!

Biographical Info

Hi, I’m Elaine I run CVFriends Ltd an online CV Writing Company, I work full time in a leadership role, finally I am a Mum to two amazing boys!

The most challenging experience in my career was returning to work after maternity leave. I felt isolated and out of touch, the organisation had moved forward, and I had changed. I was out of a business and strategic role for 8 months with my life being a whirlwind of bottles, winding, nappies and sleeping. It took time to reintegrate back into the corporate world and regain a career focus, I realised my career approach had to change. Prior to the arrival of my first son I would work at home in the evenings regularly with my sons I was unable to continue to do this and I found myself feeling guilty if I did work at night and guilty if I didn’t. It took a couple of years and a new extremely understanding and flexible boss before I was comfortable managing my career and home life.

I have a successful CV Writing Company called CVFriends Ltd, however I enjoy teaching and supporting people to write their own CVs rather than writing it for them. I think this is a more sustainable model for my customers, and I get significantly more job satisfaction from this. I have therefore developed Careering Mums alongisde CVFriends Ltd. This is where I will deliver online training related to confidence building, re-entering the workplace mindset, CV Writing, Interview Skills and Career Coaching. I want to be able to support other women to reintegrate themselves to the workplace, to have an excellent CV that demonstrates their achievements and potential, to have the confidence to sit in interviews and sell themselves, to re-build or re-enter a successful career fulfilling their ambitions.

Diane’s Dresser Personal Styling

Biographical Info

Hi Mums, I am blessed with 2 teen boys, a Labrador & we live in Donaghadee by the sea.

Our happy thing is to travel & see as much of the world as possible; I find this a great motivator to work hard & know the reward of quality time with my boys lies ahead!

I’ve worked worldwide in the business sector but then I reached a point when life took me on an unimaginably, different journey than the one I had planned.

After losing my gorgeous hubby to cancer & focusing on raising 2 wonderful, independent boys, I trained with Study In Style / London as a Personal Stylist & developed my own unique business: Diane’s Dresser … and I’m quite proud of myself for reaching this point!

At Diane’s Dresser, I advise on the colours, shapes & styles of clothing that suit the client best, with particular focus on her personality, lifestyle & who she wants to be going forward with her life. I believe that clothes should reflect & celebrate the person you are today, give you confidence & as Marie Kondo would say “spark joy”.

“THE WARDROBE WORKS” is a service I LOVE to offer because it not only de-clutters & organises the wardrobe but it also gives me a chance to get to know the client, as we work & talk about her clothes, her needs & what her concerns may be. We truly do get to the heart.

Thank you for reading X

Biographical Info

I am a mummy to Jude, Ollie, Jesse & Cole and wife to Paul. I worked in Event Management and PR for many years and absolutely loved it. I loved the buzz of events and I really enjoyed seeing how the profile of the business was being built, all over the world, from my PR efforts. But I needed more. I no longer felt challenged and after illness struck in 2016, I took the plunge and decided to retrain in Personal Styling, image consultancy and colour analysis. The London based training was extremely intense. Many people think a personal stylist is just someone who likes clothes. Liking clothes helps but it is a much more technical skill. The business keeps going from strength to strength and I have met some truly incredible women. I count myself so lucky. I often talk about how women evolve and their own unique personal journey but Evolve has set me on a path of self discovery too.

Biographical Info

Hi Everyone! I’m Louisa and I’m delighted to be part of this fantastic Mums at Work networking club!

My primary role is being Mum to my two young and very energetic little boys – Alexander is 3 and Jonathan is approaching 2.  My background is Account Management and Contract Management from the corporate contract world (office supplies, records management…) and I loved it and had every intention of returning to work after my first round of maternity leave.  Then motherhood arrived and bam! I had NO interest in returning to that environment or any job for that matter –  I just wanted to be Mummy! Our second son arrived relatively quickly after our first so again, I had maternity leave to enjoy and time to contemplate my future.  Thankfully, my other half Philip had an idea!

He no longer wanted to be an employee – after years in the financial sector and having recently completed his Masters at UUJ, he wanted to be his own boss.  He also aspired to creating a business that we could pass on to our sons down the line.  Long story short, an opportunity arose to purchase an existing business and we jumped at the chance.  This allowed him to be a Managing Director and I could get involved in a supporting role, bringing my sales and account management ‘expertise’ into the business whilst still having the flexibility to be around for the boys.  In December 2016, we started the process of buying Catering Equipment Services Limited.

Catering Equipment Services Limited (or ‘CES’) offers a one-stop shop for all your commercial catering needs – from cooking equipment and water boilers to refrigeration and microwaves, CES can service all your kitchen equipment and supply brand new equipment at competitive prices.  We aim to consistently deliver outstanding service and value to customers and by doing so, to enhance our reputation as the trusted market leader for the supply and servicing of commercial catering equipment in Northern Ireland.  Our customers include Public Sector clients; nursing homes; Councils; Education Authority; restaurant chains; bars and hotels; charities and churches.

I love what I do and I hope to raise the profile of our business through networking and connecting with women in the business community.  I look forward to being part of this community and supporting your business too.

Biographical Info

I work with clients in a variety of ways,  finding out what their struggles are and developing a plan to help them achieve their own individual style.

I help clients understand how to use their visual appearance to increase – confidence – to look and feel good by wearing the colours that flatter their natural skin tone, and to dress for their body shape, enabling them to develop a wardrobe of outfits that work together, saving time and money.

Having enjoyed running a successful hairdressing business for four decades I felt it was time for a new challenge, one that played to my strengths, working with people, listening and inspiring, but also helping people be the best they can be.

I trained with Gail Morgan at the Image House in London.

In March 2016 I stepped back from my hairdressing business to concentrate on Style by Iris.

You’ll never again say that you have nothing to wear.
