Sessions with Victoria are invaluable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services. She focuses the mind, challenges preconceptions and instils a real sense of confidence and ability to bring about a positive outcome. Analysis of strengths and weaknesses is just the start, as Victoria always looks to the wider picture and sets things in context. By asking unusual and sometimes difficult questions, and offering guidance as required, Victoria ensures total preparation and the results speak for themselves.
Victoria played a key role in my successful transition from (military) service leaver into my new corporate career. She clarified my key transferable skills and personal strengths, enabled me to present my very best self at interview, helped to manage my confidence throughout the process and allowed me to calmly and confidently close my very next role.
Victoria is a very valuable asset to have on side during any transition and / or career development opportunities. Her skills in interview preparation are unique. Be prepared for home truths, challenging questions and excellent techniques to respond. In addition, her interpretation, pithiness and use of clear language in my CV strengthened it immeasurably, resulting in a document I was proud of and which received significant praise from a number of organisations.
Worked with Victoria at a significant cross roads in my career. I was transitioning from an owner/director position in a family business back into a large corporate environment. She prompted me to reflect on my career, build a roadmap for the future, and released my full potential. I got the job!
3 months after working with Victoria I was considering 3 different positions that were all a considerable increase on my salary at the time. I ended up taking a promotion internally at a far higher level than I ever thought possible.
Victoria helped me when I changed career from an elite sportsman to an office role. The approach she instigated got me more interviews and interest and she also helped with my interview technique. I had 3 interviews and 3 offers before finding the perfect role for me.
Her approach during the processes was inclusive yet honest and unambiguous. This is perfect for ex-Service people who need to translate their many accomplishments into the world of business.
Victoria transformed my CV and coached me for interviews that just released my natural confidence. Not only have I moved into the next level in my career, I also now have the confidence to aim higher.
Victoria helped me prepare for the Civil Service Fast Stream interview and assessment centre (for which the competition is stiff). She was a real godsend: calm and professional who also gave honest and hard-hitting advice that others would shy away from. She gave a piercing evaluation that hit on some serious points, took me through the interview step by step and really grilled me! It was invaluable to my resultant success - there is no way I could have passed that interview without her help.
Victoria helped me transform a good CV into a highly polished document which could compete with the best and she also helped to translate my military experience and skills into something that was recognised in the business world. Thanks to Victoria’s work, I have been accepted for a number of interviews.
She has a unique approach to reviewing your experience and takes the time to understand you in order to bring the best out of you.
Victoria went above and beyond and provided professional advice with tricky interview questions and helped me deal with an uncomfortable situation in the workplace. Her advice had a positive impact and I was blown away at the transformation.
Victoria rewrote my CV and coached on interview techniques. She was absolutely professional and efficient, delivered to the deadlines we agreed and provided sound, plain and savvy advice. Her ability to listen and then bring clarity to both the writing and the delivery of the CV is a hallmark of her abilities. She is an impressive performer and the work is excellent value for money.
Victoria transformed my CV would be an understatement. She helped to translate my scientific endeavours into business achievements. What stood out was her professionalism, insightfulness, out of the box approach and her result driven enthusiasm which helped me redefine my career path.
After struggling for three months to find work, Victoria reworked my CV and taught me crucial interview skills that enabled me to find work within two weeks of our first meeting.
I was able to secure a new role within a few weeks of enlisting Victoria’s assistance.
I received exceptional support from Victoria when considering a change of direction in my career. Her coaching approach allowed me to identify realistic, incremental goals and an achievable action plan to help me reach them.
Victoria really quizzed me deeply in terms of my previous experience and next move - ranging in various subjects such as technical competency to work/life balance. As a result of this thorough assessment, I believe we attained the right fit.
You genuinely changed the game for me - loads more interviews and had 3 offers at one point!
Such has the impact that Victoria has had on my career that I have kept her in my corner as a key asset, career coach and counsel to enable me to successfully navigate the nuances of a successful corporate career.
