My mission is to help every client get the job they want. Through one-to-one sessions, either in person or through video and phone calls, I listen and translate their wishes into achievable goals. I help them focus on what is needed to get where they want to be.
After graduating in the Netherlands, I worked and studied in Germany, then lived in the US, before settling in Swansea just over 15 years ago. In each country I was fascinated with the diverse ways people search for and get jobs and I learnt to be flexible, how to network and how to adapt my CV. As a result of my CIPD (Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development) studies and my work in Human Resources I developed a good insight into how recruitment works, and my passion to coach people was born there.
Since 2009 I have been helping people through practical coaching in CV and Application writing, and teaching job interview techniques. Very often people come to me feeling that they are “doing something wrong”; empowering them through coaching makes the significant difference they were searching for. English is not my first language, but that has proven to be a benefit as it makes me even better at picking up spelling errors in a CV or application form, and gives me a heightened awareness of cultural habits and norms. This has proved particularly helpful for clients not originally from the U.K.
You might feel stuck with your job search or you might have attended one or two job interviews and had the feeling they didn’t go very well, but not be able to pinpoint what exactly you should do differently. Contact me for a free strategy session to see how I can help you.
As a coach I take my responsibilities to my clients very seriously. I have been an Associate Member of the CIPD (Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development) since 2009, and I am bound by their Ethical Code; I commit to maintain an honest and confidential working relationship in my time with you as my client.
