I’m Tristram Hooley. I am a careers expert and am available for comment, editorial and opinion pieces, speaking opportunities and other things that interest me.
I’m interested in how career interacts with politics, policy and technology. I believe that career guidance should be a central part of the education and employment system and that it can be a force for social justice. I post about all of this stuff on this blog.
I am Chief Research Officer, Institute of Student Employers; Professor II, Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences; Professor of Career Education at the International Centre for Guidance Studies, University of Derby; Visiting Professor at Canterbury Christ Church University; a director of NICEC; a Winston Churchill Fellow and an editor of the Career Guidance and Social Justice website. I am also Chair of Adviza and on the board of the Career Development Policy Group and the International Centre for Career Development and Public Policy.
I and have edited one special issue of the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling and am currently working on another. I have edited three special issues of the NICEC journal. I review for the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, Industry and Higher Education, the London Review of Education and the Journal of Teaching in International Business.
I am available to supervise or examine doctorates. I am currently supervising doctoral work on:
- Careers, career guidance and the gig economy
- Graduate career transitions and social media
- Employer engagement in higher education
- Careers education in schools and the future of work
- The return on investment of career education and guidance
Researchers that I have supervised have completed theses on the following subjects.

- Communities that care: an insight into male career patterns in a small neighbourhood
- How teachers conceive their role when working with Generation Z pupils in a technological learning environment

I have examined seven doctoral theses (2 PhD and 5 professional doctorates).
