Start a CONVERSATION with me by completing the form below.
I’ll be in touch to request the INFORMATION I need from you to get to grips with the situation you’re experiencing.
I’ll assses the situation for FREE and tell you whether I can help. I can’t guarantee any outcomes but I can give you an indication of what kind of RESOLUTIONS are open to you.
How Can I Help
My extensive experience working in HR means I know what businesses are looking for and therefore, how you can stand out and best present yourself, from application through to interview stage.
Furthermore, I can help you to formulate your new career path, ensuring your goals, ambitions and work-life balance are not only considered but are front and foremost as you gear up to relaunch your career.
Who Do I Help
A return to work should be exciting but many people find that once they start preparing their CV and researching the jobmarket, jobseeking becomes a process-driven function that separates employees from employers.
I’m here to armour you with the confidence, knowledge and conviction you need to embark on the next stage of your career. Therefore, I typically help those who:
Have taken a career break
Are returning to the job market after being a stay-at-home parent
Are returning to work after illness
Want to make a change in their career path
What We Will Do
I say ‘we’, not ‘I’, because this is a partnership. I’m here to hold your hand and guide you, advise you and give feedback but this journey is yours and you’ll steer it as we unravel what it is you want from your next role and where you want to be in your future career.
Self-belief can be very low after a poor exit from a previous role or a return to work after a prolonged absence. I help you craft your CV by identifying your experience, drawing out your skills, focusing on your competencies. We will also do some interview preperation.
If you need support getting back into the workplace, whether that's working out which opportunities to go for or putting together a portfolio, I may be able to help you.
The best way fob jobseekers to get in touch is to fill out my contact form and I will get back to you to arrange a proper chat ASAP.
