How I can develop your career plans

I am a qualified career consultant with over 17 years’ experience of helping people practically and spiritually in the process of choosing a new career:

  • Discover your calling in life or how to develop your career direction
  • Make the practical steps to securing a job, e.g. write a winning CV, refine a job search or create a great job interview pitch

Career planning topics that we could cover

Your career counselling would cover a range of topics covering all aspects of career planning. I would ensure that you experience a sense of progressing at a “healthy” speed through a range career-related topics, which are not limited to the following:

  1. Career exploration. I will help you to explore yourself, in terms of your skills, character strengths, personality, motivations and a few other factors and see which list of career choices offer you a good match.
    If you have a Christian belief (not essential in using the service) we can explore God’s promises for your life concerning your calling.
  2. Job search advice. This will involve job hunting advice that will get you in front of an employer as soon as possible.
  3. Marketing yourself to an employer, including CV writing & creating a persuasive cover letter, completing job applications and writing a personal statement, developing your social media profile that will drive interest in your direction (including LinkedIn)
  4. Overcoming “insurmountable” barriers to work. Each of us faces different employment challenges, some of which may include an inability to obtain employer references, physical or mental illness, lack of qualifications and finance or other personal circumstances.
  5. Job interview techniques. Many of us may be more-than-slightly-rusty at the dreaded-job interview. You will have the opportunity to “enjoy” role-play job interview practice and receive coach feedback on your responses during mock interview practice.
  6. Gaining an understanding of the labour market. We shall examine what the demand is like for certain professions, job entry requirements, location of jobs and other labour market info’ factors.

Linked In Testimonials

Don’t just take my word for it. Please take a few moment to check out some of the testimonials I’ve received from my clients:

“Charles’s direction and guidance has been and continues to be invaluable to me in formulating the future direction of my career and, indirectly but related, to my life in general.

Charles has a wealth of knowledge and ideas in his fields of expertise. He does not make snap decisions or recommendations and is a great listener which I feel is intensely important. Together with his passion and humility, he makes time to digest various aspects of my strands of thinking, personality, skills, goals and aspirations to fully understand my own character and objectives as well as my personal commitments which he always factors into his thinking and our discussions.

Thanks very much Charles! Hugely appreciate your help, direction and guidance.”
