Win a Career Styling Session With Debenhams & Open University

This competition is now closed.

We’ve teamed up with Open University to give away eight exclusive career styling makeovers, to encourage people to take the next step on their dream career path in 2017.

A new consumer poll from The Open University (OU) reveals two thirds of us will be searching for a new job this January and in addition to this, one in five of us are feeling completely lost and unsure of where to begin.

The polling further exposed that people are struggling to balance their personal and professional lives in today’s busy, fast-paced society, with a surprising one in four people finding it difficult to maintain what they see to be a positive work/life balance.

We’re partnered up with the Open University to empower these people, with the ultimate ‘Career Styling Experience’ to help people on career ladder in 2017.


With an hour’s expert career guidance combined with an hour’s personal styling session, giving tips for the workplace, the eight candidates will be guided to dress and act for success for that next big important interview or work meeting. Not only this, in order to fulfill that healthy work-life balance, participants will also receive one-on-one half an hour’s session with a life coach, to support those desiring to achieve that balance.

Claire Riding, Head of Careers and Employability Services at The Open University, comments:  “We all know that sometimes obstacles can get in the way and hold us back from starting a new job. We hope that by offering these Career Styling Experiences and highlighting the benefits of the OU’s flexible study offering, we will show people just how feasible it can be and inspire people to embrace a new learning journey this year.”

So here’s what you need to know…

  • Sessions will take place in our Oxford Street store on 3rd, 6th 10th February.
  • Good news for those of you who may not be around the London area, up to £80 travel expenses are covered.
  • You’ll receive 1 hour with a careers expert, a 1 hour personal styling session and half an hour with a professional life coach.

This competition closes Wednesday 25th January. Winners will be selected by Friday 27th January.
