Established following a pilot programme in 2011 MKEA is the trading name for Careers-Action a not for profit Charitable Incorporated Organisation run by people with personal experience of redundancy, unemployment and executive job-seeking. Volunteer subject specialist speakers provide our training support services and help us achieve our objective of helping you and each other undertake a job search and get back into work or start a new business.

An organisation led by and operating with volunteers and no paid staff we need to continually raise funds and rely upon the goodwill of our guest speakers and management group and leaders, Melvin Hurley and John Dale who all provide their services free of charge. We hope that, if you find MKEA helpful you will consider providing a donation or committing to making a small regular direct/debit or standing order to help fund our work.

Membership of MKEA is free of charge and includes access to our full range of training, information and support services. Our meeting agenda can be found under the "Agenda" section of this website agenda on the left-hand side of this page.

Redundancy and unemployment is probably the most stressful, frustrating and lonely period you will ever encounter during your career. Your confidence will be undermined, self-doubt will set in and you will certainly wonder if and when it will all end. Despite what you may think now your future is in your hands, it is up to you to take control and make things happen. Establishing a structured job search is essential unless you are extremely lucky and secure employment in the first few weeks you are likely to face a period of many months and increasingly around a year before you get back into work. This is where MKEA is able to help.
