Career Specialist - UK
I have over 25 years’ experience in executive recruitment, career management and planning, and specialize in handling and advising on career transitions. I also work with London Business School as the Executive Career Lead for the Executive MBA programme working with a truly diverse group of post-graduate students.
Working for one of the leading career management firms I was a successful international head-hunter for clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to start-ups, mostly in the technology, financial services, consultancy and legal sectors.
During the 2009 financial crisis I became involved in outplacement to help people after redundancy and I realised that I enjoyed the process of helping people make challenging career decisions, rather than just recruiting executives. I realised that I was at my best when I was coaching outside of my normal recruitment remit. This led me to undertake an MSc in Career Management and Coaching.
Having tested out new possibilities I transitioned roles over two years from that of a head-hunter to become a full-time career coach whereby my clients benefit from my knowledge of recruitment processes and interview techniques. Now, rather than working on behalf of large corporates, I work with individuals to help them navigate the complexities of career change.
