Career Development Consultation
This is the catch-all consultation for all job-hunting situations and is our most popular package. It consists of one face to face 2 hour consultation (or two x 1 hours via Skype) and is tailored to your needs. We assess your situation, discuss your career hopes and ambitions and devise an action plan, giving guidance on all aspects of your job search including CVs, Covering Letters and Applications. Follow up is given via two telephone consultations to ensure you are supported. Further support packages may be purchased if required. We will have a quick chat before accepting your booking to ensure this is the right solution for you.

CVs, Covering Letters, Applications, Interview Prep and Employability
If you’re looking for a job and want to ensure that your CV and Covering Letters are doing the job, or if you’re going through a blind application process and want guidance, then let us help you.
We won’t rewrite your whole CV but we’ll guide you as to what to write and ensure that you are on-point with meeting the requirements for the job you’re applying for and your career aims. This also applies to your Covering Letter or application questions.
We are also able to help with immediate interview preparation, whether it is pre-recorded (Hirevue), zoom/video call or face to face.
