Your next senior role in the hands of an expert.
And not just an expert outplacement consultant, interview coach and CV writer.
But one with many years’ experience on the ‘other side’, recruiting, researching, sifting and assessing candidates for C-Suite, Head of Service and Senior Specialist roles.
And one who cares deeply about clients, will empathise with your position, support you, and take the time and effort needed to give you the best chance of success.
If circumstances have led you to be looking for your next Executive (permanent or interim) or Non-Executive level position, the experience, gravitas and quality of service I offer will be paramount.

In the last two decades, a lot has changed in executive level recruitment. Automatic scanning systems for CVs, a heavy reliance on LinkedIn, competency-based interviews; these are additional skills you’ll now need to incorporate into your armoury.

LinkedIn profiles must be coded with the right keywords to ensure you’re found. And your presentation and interview skills must be up to scratch to meet the competencies on which you’ll be assessed.
Finding yourself at an unexpected stage of transition in your career can be daunting, distressing and have an impact on your confidence. I’ve supported countless C-Suite level, Head of Service, Non-Exec and senior ex-Military professionals through difficult times, building their confidence and giving them the best possible chance of a successful application and improved performance at interview.
How can I support you?
More heresy from me today. I hope you like it. It’s a plea for a new realism in job interviews. The tea’s in Boston Harbor. Ninety Five theses are nailed to the church door. There’s a man in green standing outside a post office trying to whip up a mob with poetry....
