Conversations with an experienced coach to explore, challenge and support you to achieve your career goals and objectives.

There is no minimum requirement although we recommend a minimum of 3 sessions for the best results. Some of the areas we can cover together include:

Discovery and Self Assessment: The ultimate value of a career can be determined by how it delivers fulfilment in the context of your life aspirations, values, goals and ambitions. We help you to decide what motivates you, what you enjoy, are good at and most importantly, where you want to be in terms of your future career. 

Preparation: We will work to ensure that you are well equipped to realise your career goals providing guidance on leadership skills, interview preparation and support with offer negotiation.​

Job Search: Options and Opportunities — £120 per one hour session

The job search process can be confusing territory and often requires a determined, structured and proactive approach. We will leverage our experience in executive recruitment, our research skills and knowledge of different job markets to elevate your job search.

 

We will carry out in-depth, detailed research on your behalf to identify different career options, appropriate live job opportunities, relevant recruiters, useful job sites and target employers for you to approach directly. We will provide information and insights tailored to your goals, expertise and experience. Where appropriate, we can introduce you to appropriate professionals in our network enabling you to access the unadvertised job market where unique opportunities can often be found.

We recommend at least one Coaching Conversation before the Job Search process begins, followed by 3-4 Job Search sessions for best results.
