Everyone deserves to feel seen, heard and valued

Careercake offers organisations access to content that gives people the confidence to rise to, take on and beat the challenges they'll face in the first decade of their career... ...ensuring they become happy, well-rounded and impactful individuals (that's the important part).

We create content on the areas they’ll actually face when in their career. The topics that no one else talks about.

You know, how to deal with the ‘firsts’.

How to pluck up the courage and speak to the MD for the first time.
How to get your ideas heard in a meeting full of loud people.
How to deal with your first disappointment.
How to become an ally to your LGBTQ+ team mate.
How to talk about anxiety with your boss.
How to deal with rejections and build resilience.
How to start liking yourself again.

We work with teams who genuinely care about their people and want to give them access to content to go on and build confidence in their careers. We do so by creating and sharing content that is developed by people who really care about their subject matter and care about our viewers.

Where it all began.

Following a decade as a leading recruiter, CEO, Aimee Bateman, felt a deep desire to help passionate jobseekers find and communicate their voice in a very competitive marketplace. She bought a second-hand camera from eBay and started making YouTube videos in her lounge.

The production quality was not the best (her cat made an appearance in one, as did a microwave lasagne) but the content was special. What she did was very obvious. She provided top quality careers advice, but her ‘why’ is what really captured people’s attention.

A few years later (and several millions of views later) our content is now viewed in over 42 countries and licensed by people-focused organisations who wish to power their teams to grow in confidence and become confident.

Our values are super important to us.

They are: Brave, Credible, Disruptive, Powering, Empathetic
