Case Study
Sam came to me when she decided to leave her role as Business Director in a well-known advertising agency. She quite enjoyed her role but wanted more and felt that something was missing from her career. But she was unsure what it was and how to move forwards.

I helped Sam recognise what was important to her; understanding her skills and capabilities gave her clarity on what she would be suited to. Through our work together, she gained an insight into what drove her and the role she needed in order to feel fulfilled.

As fewer than 35% of jobs are actually advertised, Sam explored her existing relationships and extended her network to fully utilise the hidden job market and find opportunities that way.
She was unsure how to market herself, so we improved her Linked In profile and developed an impactful CV that went from being generic to specifically homing in on exactly what a potential employer would be looking for so that she really stood out.

When she was offered her dream role with a large international electronics company, I worked with her to improve her interview and negotiation skills so that she felt confident about getting a good package for herself.

If you would like me to help you rapidly move forwards with your career, then I would be delighted to talk to you.
