My approach combines world-leading executive career management practices with my own unique expertise and practical experience of consistently securing roles from the 'unadvertised' job market over a 25-year period. In fact, 9 out of my last 10 permanent and interim roles were secured this way. I share my practical experience, not BS theory and never a 'one size fits all'.
I don't believe executive search insights should remain the preserve of just the most senior business executives who can afford exorbitant fees but that these industry secrets should be made available and affordable to anyone at any level.
The items below are therefore by way of example and can be run as separate sessions, in combinations depending on individual needs and budgets or as a complete end-to-end program.
This is need and capability dependent but can range from one-off sessions for specific needs or for more in-depth guidance, they can be planned and conducted over a few weeks of up to 3 months. Either way, it involves 1:1 online zoom sessions, face-to-face meetings where required (subject to Covid-19 restrictions), all associated resources and assignments, plus unlimited email and telephone support as necessary during the agreed time-frame.
We go deep and personal, probably deeper than you've ever gone before and we'll uncover career and even life-changing insights that lead to breakthroughs aligned to your deepest desires, aims and ambitions. This is where so many people get it so wrong from the outset, which impacts all subsequent steps. It can derail your potential to succeed before you've even started your job search. We make sure you avoid this pitfall.
We'll build you as the brand, your unique skills, strengths, preferences, accomplishments and options to create a laser focus on the best direction for your job-hunting campaign. We will create a clear compass that will guide you.
Based on the above, we then create a powerful CV & Messaging, which can be easily adapted to each and every opportunity you uncover or create, along with a summary profile piece and associated covering letters, emails, messaging as required.
There are many options to 'go to market' with, from the obvious social media channels and advertised vacancies to company websites and recruiters or head-hunters but the most overlooked and critical ways to get the inside track on future job opportunities and bypass the competition is through the 'unadvertised job market or 'hidden' job market as some people call it.
We will prepare you for the toughest interview questions so you breeze past them effortlessly in the interviews. This can include intensive interview training and mock scenarios to ensure you approach any and all situations with unshakeable confidence.
In certain cases, it's not always the best deal for you to accept whatever is put on the table so where required we will cover negotiating strategies and tactics that get you the best overall deal and still keep your new employer happy, and probably even more impressed and pleased they made the decision to hire you.
We will treat your job search as a 'special project' because this is what it is. We'll therefore track your progress, make adjustments and improvements if and as required along the way. The magic doesn't happen with the end outcome, this is just confirmation of following the process
You’ll leave this process with a specific roadmap and action plan that will help you market yourself in an innovative and impactful way to either land your ideal job, go freelance or if desired, start your own business. Whichever your choice, it's designed to be one of the most life-changing processes you're ever likely to go through, the skills of which will stay with you for life.
Once you've secured your ideal role, you'll want to make an impact and continue to do so as you progress your career. This being the case, you have the option to book one-off sessions around specific needs as they come up or to retain my services for regular reviews and development around leadership and business strategy relevant to the challenges and/or opportunities you face.
