Career Programmes

Who are my career coaching programmes for?

My career coaching programmes are for anyone who wants more from their career.

Typically, my clients sit within one of two categories: experienced professionals considering a career change, and students and graduates looking for an internship or graduate position.

Career Programme for Professionals 

The average person has over twelve different jobs in their lifetime, and it’s very rare that we start our career on the exact path that we want to stay on for life. A career change could mean anything from a starting a new job at a different company, to a complete change into a brand new industry, to setting up your own business.

There are many important elements to shifting your career, from developing your personal brand to widening and deepening your network. Career coaching provides structure and guidance to plan and execute a career change into a role you really want, even if you don’t know what that ideal job looks like just yet.

Career Programme for Graduates 

As someone who led graduate recruitment teams in the corporate world, I recognise it can feel like a tough market for graduate job seekers at the moment. But each year, many are successful in securing graduate places in their dream company. How can you set yourself apart from the hundreds of other graduate job seekers to land the job you really want?

I have been helping graduates secure their first professional job for years, and in 2019 I launched a bespoke career coaching programme in partnership with Jake Schogger, a qualified Magic Circle lawyer and Founder of City Career Series. The programme is aimed at students and graduates targeting careers in areas such as Law, Finance, Investment Banking and Professional Services and covers topics including online applications, interviews and assessment centres.

What can career coaching programmes help with?

My career programmes bring together my experience in corporate recruitment, executive coaching, and business school career consulting to offer a flexible but structured  programme that can help you:

  • Get clear on your career motivators, values, skills and strengths
  • Develop a strong personal brand demonstrated through your CV and LinkedIn profile
  • Learn how to network authentically and deepen your professional relationships
  • Succeed at recruitment exercises such as interviews and assessment centres
  • Build confidence and assertiveness at work
  • Plan and execute a career change
  • Set up your own business or go freelance

What exactly does a career coaching programme involve?

I offer a range of services that sit within two main categories – coaching and consulting. Typically I will flex between these two styles depending on your goals, preferred way of working, and what stage of the career programme you’re at.

When you’re feeling stuck, or lacking in motivation or confidence, Coaching uses questioning and feedback to raise your self-awareness, confidence and accountability.

If you’re applying to jobs and want real recruitment insight, Career Consulting offers detailed and specific feedback on CVs, interview technique and job search strategy.

A career programme also includes access to a range of tools including self-reflection exercises, a workbook to track progress, a guide to strategic job searching, and email mentoring between sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's expected from me as a client?

A career coaching programme is an investment, and I want to make sure you get as much value from it as you can. The contact hours are only one element of the programme, and how you engage with the exercises, resources and challenges you set yourself will also determine your success.

In order for this to happen, you will need to nudge your comfort zone. Whether this is through networking, seeking feedback, or trying something totally new; nudging your comfort zone is a great way to improve your motivation and confidence.

Re-framing failure is also an important part of developing professionally. Nobody likes the idea of making mistakes, but our careers are full of them. This is especially the case if you’re applying for jobs – rejections are inevitable. Failure might feel painful, but objective reflection (rather than wallowing in self-criticism) of our mistakes can lead to our biggest insight and learning, actually accelerating our growth in the long run.

Throughout the programme I will offer insight, structure, and detailed and honest feedback. However, the results you get will be determined by your own commitment and pro-activity. Like many things in life, you will get out of programme what you put in, and I encourage you to aim high and be open-minded about what you can achieve through small, consistent steps forward.

How much do your career coaching programmes cost?

A standard career coaching programmes costs £1,560 (total). This includes access to a range of products and services, and a payment plan option.

I also offer pay as you go coaching in 90 minute sessions, which is a charged at a higher hourly rate relative to the full career programme. I typically only recommend this option if you have a one off specific goal, for example preparing for a single interview.

I also offer a premium career coaching programme for those looking to work together for a full year.

For further details on any of these options, get in touch through the contact form below.

When and where will coaching take place?

I am available to coach during the day Monday to Friday, as well as some evenings Monday to Thursday.

I have coaching space available at no extra cost in both east and central London, and conduct many of my sessions through Skype. Coaching sessions can take place in your office, if your employer is aware and comfortable with this arrangement.

I'm interested in coaching but don't feel ready to commit yet. What can I do?

This is a very common fear of people contemplating shifting their career. People rarely feel ready – I certainly didn’t when I started thinking about my career change – but there will never be a perfect time. People also tend to delay starting something if they don’t have clarity of the exact end goal. We rarely know exactly what we’re looking for before we start – but we have to start somewhere.
