Through affordable one-to-one coaching or group workshops, we will help you to develop the career confidence to grow your career in the way that's right for you. You will gain insight, clarity, ideas, inspiration and motivation, as well as expert advice on CV presentation, interview skills, work life balance, job search techniques and more.
If you've ever tried to drive somewhere new without a roadmap or a route plan, you'll know that, while instinct and intuition will get you so far you can end up wasting a lot of time going the wrong way, having to do three point turns in dead ends and realising you've driven past that particular land mark three times already, before you finally give up and end up either back where you started or somewhere else completely.
Latest statistics from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development suggest 54% of employees nationally are undertaking some sort of flexible working, and 69% of those working flexibly are satisfied or very satisfied with their roles. London is lagging slightly behind with only 52% of employees working flexibly so there is scope to improve this particularly given Londoners have the longest commute in the country averaging 47 minutes. Flexible working is open to anyone, not just parents and those caring for dependants.
Work life balance can seem an impossible ideal to achieve with technology making work accessible 24/7 and the fear of redundancy snapping at everyone's heels. The stress of never being able to switch off combined with working long hours, we know, is damaging to health, relationships and overall happiness.
