SECURING YOUR CHOSEN ROLE
I am an experienced interviewer, having recruited for a range of roles at different levels and managed Graduate Recruitment programmes. My years of working with employees have given me a sense of the subtle indicators which determine a person’s suitability for a role. I know how to make the right impression on an employer, starting with your CV and LinkedIn profile through to interview and assessment centre performance.
I have coached clients through the job search and selection process for organisations across multiple sectors and have a good understanding of different company cultures and contemporary selection practices.
Creating a message with impact
An inconsistent message creates doubt, whether it’s an application for university or employment. To help make a consistent impression it’s important to be clear on your unique qualities, skills and motivations in your personal statement, CV, cover letter and interview answers. I can help you achieve this.
Equally important is understanding the reality of a role’s requirements which are not always clear. I am experienced in translating competences and organisational culture into examples of skills and behaviours that make sense in your world. This helps you create insightful and tailored applications which promote the unique value you bring in a way that’s meaningful for the employer
Assessment Centre Coaching
Preparation for an assessment centre enables you to demonstrate the qualities an organisation is looking for and increase the likelihood of an offer. My coaching will take you through the assessment criteria and the behaviours required to meet them. I will help you participate effectively in group exercises and create the right impression throughout the day. We will explore any concerns you have or factors which may impact your performance and create strategies to help you deliver your best.
The structure will vary with your requirements and will typically involve face to face or video interview practice. If you are preparing for a specific opportunity, I will use the job description and company information to tailor the interview accordingly. I provide feedback on your answers, style and body language. What you communicate unintentionally through facial expression, the way you talk and the use of other body language has the power to undermine the messages you want a potential employer to receive.
I offer bespoke services to fit your needs and can coach you through all or any stage of your job search journey.
