Career entry advice and support; offering guidance on launching a successful new career

Have you just completed your education?

Are you uncertain about what the future holds?

Are you concerned about the job market?

Are you unsure what you’d like to do?

Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed and slightly anxious?

If you are looking for support then I can help you. I have over 20 years’ experience as a Recruitment Consultant and am an accredited Executive Coach from Henley Business School, which is ranked as one of the top 30 business schools in the world.  I have successfully worked through the last two recessions and use my in-depth knowledge of recruitment and my expertise as a coach to give you help and guidance to come up with an effective career plan for yourself.

For example, did you know that over 60% of jobs aren’t advertised or posted online?  This means that if you are only looking at advertised roles, you are going to be missing out on the “hidden” job market.

I often see badly presented CVs, poorly communicated achievements and a lack of knowledge about navigating the market.

If you work with me, I can help you to:

Get an idea of which direction to go in (what do you really want to do?)

Identify your potential and motivation

Map out a career path and identify the stepping stones

Effectively communicate your achievements in your CV

Market yourself on Linked In

Start to build an effective network

Navigate the “hidden” job market

Having an enjoyable and successful career is one of the most important things you can do for yourself.  To achieve this, it is essential to have the very best knowledge and support on your side.
