I have 20 years experience in the corporate world leading and developing teams of people. Key parts of my role have been coaching and developing individuals on their careers, interviewing hundreds of applicants for junior to senior management roles and designing and running assessment centres. This experience, alongside my own career progression, gives me a unique insight into what secures a job offer, the common mistakes almost everyone makes at interview, how people stand out and what makes them enjoy their jobs. I'd love to share all this knowledge with you, so that you too can launch an amazing career. A career you will love.
