Career and General Coaching

Career Coaching

Career coaching can be broadly split into two areas - (i) analysis of you and (ii) conducting a job search campaign. Analysis of you involves identification of your skills, competencies, values and interests, and may also involve the use of psychometric tests (e.g. the OPQ or MAPP). Conducting effective job search campaign involves researching the market place, writing effective CV's, letters and emails and preparing for interviews, which can include coaching using CCTV if requested. Some clients take up all aspects of career coaching and others may just want help with for example preparing for interviews.

Toni has been coaching individuals on careers and job search campaigns for 20 years. This aspect of her work was built on 3 years experience of recruiting staff for wide variety of roles (including accountants, IT specialists, economists, chauffeurs, chefs, administrators etc.) for a major investment bank, training HR specialists in different sectors on how to conduct interviews and career coaching as a Senior Consultant with a large HR consultancy.
