TPT Employment Webinar: In conversation with Charles Coyle
5-6pm on Wednesday 19 August 2020
Join Thomas Pocklington Trust in conversation with Charles Coyle. Charles has had a varied career to date, having worked in education, the sight loss sector and currently working within the civil service.
Blind since birth, Charles trained to become a teacher but soon realised his passion was away from the classroom, and set about taking every opportunity he could find to change career. After working for RNIB and TPT, he made the move into Local Government and went from strength to strength. He is now a fully fledged civil servant working in central government.
Martin Sigsworth, TPT’s Senior Employment Manager, will be in conversation with Charles to understand his career journey, what challenges and obstacles he has had to overcome, what it is like working in the civil service and what advice he has for blind and partially sighted people looking to get on or progress their careers.
