We can chat through your current situation and figure out where you are at and which service is the best solution for your current career transition challenge.
How much does it cost?
It varies depending on the consultation or program. The longer the program, the more the program is discounted.
To make it manageable, we can look at an instalment repayment plan (starting from £75 p/m) or I can accept settlement by credit card. I will always try to find a route through to make it workable for you.
I realize that it can be financially unsettling during your career transition, however, this is an investment in your career that will serve you well beyond your next step career move. And let’s not forget these services are designed to help you secure your next step career move (+ higher earning capacity) quicker and more effectively than if you were transitioning alone, which means earning sooner too as well as better propositioning your value and the package you deserve, rather than the package you can get.
I am confident that my services will make that vital difference you need them to and you will see immediate value in the return on your investment.
If I take up your services, am I guaranteed a job at the end of it?
I think it would be flippant even reckless if any career services provider claimed to do so.
However, my services will certainly make a big difference and will provide you the tools, strategies and knowledge to sharpen up your job search activity and achieve your next step career ambitions far more effectively and much quicker than if you were job searching alone. This expert guidance and support will also set you up beyond your next move.
You can’t unlearn or undo the toolkit, knowledge, protocols and strategies you will discover. Have a look here to see some before and after stories from clients I have worked with recently.
I’m not sure if my CV is any good?
No problem, I can take a look at your CV and feedback my ‘warts and all’ CV critique. This is a free service. We can chat over my feedback at a time to suit you.
All sorts of reasons! But essentially, it will make a big difference and you will turn a corner.
I have a 360-degree insider insight into all aspects of job search and career transition.
I successfully ran my own recruitment business for 11 years and have worked in HR and hired in industry prior to this. I have been head-hunted and I have also been a job-searching candidate. I have insight into every aspect of career transition and most essentially I know how the system works, keeping very close to the sector.
I also see transition, turnaround and progression in everyone I support. I find my coaching work particularly rewarding, seeing career challenges overcome and next step career objectives achieved.
CVs are absolutely integral to your career transition. It’s your calling card and represents your personal branding. Remember, you are competing and your career trajectory is determined by your CV.
If you have an average CV you will be perceived as average, no matter how brilliant you actually are.
Your CV should define your brilliance and expertise – everyone has brilliance; in fact, this is part of my robust CV recraft service - to dig deep beyond the surface of your career and draw out the positive contribution you have made in the workplace, this is what I call the CV sizzle! This is the information Hirers really want to hear about and converts a flat CV to a high-impact CV. The number of times I have said “Why isn’t that in your CV” and the standard reply “I never thought of that”..
CVs can give you a huge competitive advantage against job-competitors, particularly in a crowded market. Your CV can tip the balance between the shortlist or the "no" or "maybe" pile.
If you want to set more career opportunities running; demonstrate your earning potential and value to a business so you can have sensible salary negotiations; set an interviewer’s positive mindset about you, before you even step into the interview room and trigger positive interview discussion, it’s worth investing your time.
If you want to stick with average results, then stick with an average CV.
How does the coaching session work? Can I just book one coaching session?
Of course. My coaching sessions last typically 90 minutes. We may run over, but that’s fine by me. This time will be focused on you and the career transition challenges you face.
All my coaching sessions are conducted on a one-to-one basis, they offer a safe space and will remain confidential. Covid permitting we can meet face to face at my office in Nottinghamshire, or if you prefer, we can meet virtually via Zoom.
We can meet at a time to suit your schedule, I’m totally flexible.
Can I get this level of support from my Leadership Coach or Wellness Coach?
Probably not, as their expertise is in a different field.
My expert, bespoke professional services are purely focussed on everything Job Search and Career Transition.
This customised support can be immediate and practical help, for example – what buttons to press, action planning and mapping, devising strategizes, working with recruiters, building your own campaign, maximising LinkedIn; or they can be transitional, working on clarifying and achieving career goals; or the support can be mentoring, check-in guidance, sense-checking as well as repositioning your mindset and building your confidence.
