A 23 year career in recruitment means I can help you develop your skills and advance your career from a recruiter's perspective. I can also help you uncover the missing link that is stopping you moving forwards and draw out those forgotten skills and gifts. I see things from the perspective of a recruiter, parent, business owner and divorcee. My clients include people who have never worked, people with PhDs, artists, parents, CEOs, healers, creatives and entrepreneurs.
This is like a massive secret I found in my own career. I used to watch successful people and see how they behaved; I started to realise that what made people listen to them or take on board their ideas was confidence. How do you get yourself some of that?! My role is to support you and help you build confidence in yourself and your abilities - whether you just want to be able to speak up on a Zoom meeting or start your own business ,we will work in partnership to get stuff done. If there is a critical voice sitting in you shoulder telling you that you can't, we will sort that out too!
Finding A Job
I have a unique approach to finding work, which is fueled by two decades in headhunting and a need to feed two kids. I can guide you where to look and who to contact in the HR department. Don't wait for the perfect job to find you - create it, research it then go get it! Rethink work; some people are more suited to 2-3 part time jobs, rather than one full time job, for example. Finding our purpose, might not mean ditching our job and living in a yurt; it could mean taking on a voluntary role on a Saturday morning to fulfil that part of us.
Purpose is a big word. Why the hell are we here ? What's it all about? I certainly don't have the answer to these big questions, but I can have an open conversation with you, regardless of your beliefs, about finding YOUR purpose. Following things that light you up is a good indicator of your purpose, but how do you integrate it into your life? What would you fight for? What makes you excited? You don't have to quit your job and go and sit on a mountain to live your purpose - we can find a less extreme way to find it!
Be the leader of your own life; I am a recruiter and a Mum and my superpower is never giving up! Learn to create the job you want, instead of reacting to job adverts or life circumstances. Turn set backs into growth opportunities and turn your "mistakes" into your USP. Take the bull by the horns! If we have spent a vast majority of our life relying on others, it can be scary transitioning into being the Director of our own life. But you don't have to do it alone; let me help you discover who you are and who you were all along.
Independence does not have to mean living in isolation, never asking for help and living frugally. It's not a punishment. It means having a sense of creating a life yourself, for yourself. Often, if we have relied on others for money, confidence or reassurance, to find that for ourselves can be scary. We can talk through your experiences and put together a plan of action that makes YOU the main character.
That awkward moment when you're not working and someone asks you what you do - have an answer ready that feels authentic and doesn't diminish your role in life.
Improved Communication Skills
Meeting with a coach gives you an opportunity to speak to another adult; the amount of times I have bored my post person to death because they are the first adult I've spoken to all day!
If you are struggling with the name of your logo, or how to find a web designer; what school to send your child to or what is the best book on Autism; brainstorming with someone who has a sympathetic ear and creative mind can take you out of the indecision.
