If you keep selling yourself as your current job, you will get another job like it. There is an alternative. Whatever you have done so far, we can help you to begin looking at creative alternatives and find a different way forward as well as being much clearer about how you do a CV, fill in forms and communicate at interview.
Our first question will be: What needs to be different by the end of the conversation? Then we will do the work which you need to do so that you will
- be much clearer how to describe your skills and not your job
- look at your skills more generically, be able to communicate them more effectively and have ideas of where to start looking for new possibilities, if appropriate.
- have clarity about how to use evidence in forms and interviews
- understand how to approach the next form
- have received honest, supportive and developmental feedback
If your challenge is the interview, you will practice different approaches and receive live feedback.
This is about getting the right job for you. We will help you to present your gifts and skills as you really are, with evidence. No spin. No techniques.
You’ll know you’ve got there because
- you will have new ideas and will begin to stop feeling trapped
- it doesn’t take a long time to start looking at things differently
- it will be a huge relief when you start feeling that you are making choices.

“I needed to find a new post but also transfer to a very different sector. After the makeover, I was able to identify my transferable skills, create a resource file as the basis for applications using STAR analysis examples, and was able to create an effective short CV which could be amended for each post I applied for. I also understood how to plan my job search as a project, carefully managed at each stage. Now I understand thevalue of carefully unpacking each role I have undertaken and trying to see it in another language so that it can be transferred. I also learned the value of identifying and cultivating what Claire called ‘angels’ ie networkers who would promote me
Without any doubt, the 2 hours I spent with Claire were the most important I’ve spent with anyone in the last 6 months; and that includes seeing another consultant for similar help/advice.” JB
