Jessica Pieri

Having spent the last 10 years working in Recruitment, Training and Careers Education, Jess started The Careers Lady in 2018. Working with schools, education organisations and employers has provided her with a broad range of knowledge across the early careers sector. 

Jess has her Level 6 in Careers Guidance and Level 6 in Careers Leadership qualifications. She has completed training sessions on behalf of the Careers and Enterprise company, UniTasterDays and several universities.

After the demand for support rose, Jess realised she couldn't do everything alone! The Careers People was born and now consists of a collective of careers professionals working together to support Schools, Young People and Education Companies across the UK.

Elizabeth Lloyd

I am a Level 6 Qualified Careers Advisor, with over 20 years’ experience in the Careers and Recruitment industry. 


I take great pride and enjoyment working in the Careers industry, raising aspirations and achievements of students and ensuring I offer the highest quality of information and support, to make informed and educated choices for their future pathways. I have worked in both state and independent schools, providing advice from Year 7 through to Year 13. I have substantial experience with UCAS as well as international university applications. 


I love to chat and explore the puzzle that is 'next steps' for students. I pride myself on being able to build a rapport quickly and students feel comfortable talking to me about their plans and options - even if they don't know quite what they are yet! 


Outside of work, I love tennis and play as part of a team for my local club. I also run regularly with a bunch of fabulous ladies – and yes, we chat the whole way!

Lauren Bugiel

Formally speaking, Lauren is TCP Team Administrator but we prefer the term "Queen of Newsletters" as her main responsibility is to create the weekly careers newsletter than is branded and sent out to over 100 schools (and counting!) each week.

Lauren completed her BA in Business Management in 2017 and alongside her part time role with us, she also works in Operations for a Recruitment firm.
