I help career-minded professionals, managers and senior managers achieve successful career transition through Career Coaching, CV & LinkedIn writing and interview support. 

Having a plan and a strategy to achieve your career objectives are key to achieving career and job success. Without this, you can find yourself making short-term career decisions which can lead to dissatisfaction, frustration and stress. Through coaching, I help my clients identify their short and long-term career goals and help them set a strategy to achieve these.  

I also offer an expert-level CV and LinkedIn writing service, and if interviews aren’t your strong point, interview coaching and mock interviews can make the world of difference. 

If you’d like to discuss how I can help, please get in touch and we’ll set up an introductory call. My contact details are at the bottom.

CV & LinkedIn Writing

CVs are skim-read, often in less than 20 seconds, so your suitability to a role needs to stand out immediately and include ‘keywords’ relevant to the role you’re applying for. Recruiters and larger companies sift CVs using software called Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and if your CV doesn’t match their keyword requirements, the system will automatically reject it.  

It is also important to have a high-quality, optimised LinkedIn profile that complements your CV as recruiters and employers will check out your profile. Your profile should not just be a copy of your CV but present you in a more personal, less formal style, helping people get to know you a bit better.

No two CVs or LinkedIn profiles are the same and my service is bespoke to suit your unique strengths and experience. I offer CV / LinkedIn packages as well as Coaching / CV packages (see below) or contact me to discuss your individual requirements.

What previous clients said:

“Excellent service and knowledge. Sandie was brilliant, and the CV is amazing. Thank you!” – P. Surrey, CV client

Coaching Packages

If you need support with career or job change, help with job searching strategy or support with interview preparation and practice, I offer Coaching packages which provide excellent value for money.

Packages include coaching, a high quality ATS-friendly CV and fully optimised LinkedIn profile, and are designed to help you prepare to make a career or job change, focusing on your strengths, aims and objectives, and developing a strategy to achieve these.   

The coaching sessions are fully flexible and designed around your needs, which we’ll discuss during a free introductory call.

What previous clients said:

Interview Coaching

These are some common areas that we often fall down on in interviews. If you recognise any of these, Interview Coaching will help you improve your performance and confidence:

  1. Rambling and losing focus in your answer
  2. Not confidently selling your strengths and skills 
  3. Not providing clear examples that show how your skills and experience match the role 
  4. Not taking credit for your own achievements

Successfully handling interviews is a skill in itself and it’s a fact that we get better at interviews the more we practice. With my Interview Coaching, I will help you become fully prepared for any interview and more confident in your answers. 

I also offer a bespoke online mock interview so that you can fully practice your answers and receive feedback to help set you on your way to success at your next interview. 

Interview Coaching Prices 

  • Interview Coaching sessions to provide advice and techniques to help you prepare confident interview answers: 1 hour: £85 / 1.5 hours: £100 
  • Online mock interview using latest video interviewing software to practice your answers and gain feedback: £195

What previous clients said:

“I want to take this opportunity to thank you immensely for all your help with the CV and the interview skills. I could not have done it without your input and my job search would have been prolonged without your help. I am forever grateful.” – K, CV & Interview Coaching client

“I got the job – thank you so much for all your help.” – J. London, Interview Coaching client

About Me

I’m a qualified Coach with an MSc in Career Coaching and 25+ years experience in Business and People Management, providing me with a solid commercial background and a wealth of experience in supporting individuals plan, develop and progress their careers.

My career started in Finance, working for a city-based Insurance Broker before moving to join Finance teams at Honda and Jardine Matheson. From there I joined British Airways and enjoyed a 14+ year career with the airline, starting in Customer Services and moving into leadership positions in Sales and Marketing, Training and Project Management.

Returning to work after a career break, I worked in the Education sector for a while before moving back into the business world, first as an Account Manager in the Employee Benefits sector and then heading up the Account Management team, working with multi-million£ companies and accountable for annual sales of £12-14m.

People development has always been my passion and when I decided it was time to make a career change, my aim was to combine my business experience and my coaching skills to help individuals find meaningful and fulfilling careers and I retrained as a Career Coach, gaining a Master’s in Career Coaching from the University of East London.
