Career Coaching

Take control over your career direction and proactively progress it

About Career Coaching

Our career coaching services are designed to support people who want to take more control over their career direction and proactively advance it.

Whether you are looking to improve your career progression within your current organisation, move to a new external role, or simply to explore your careers options; career coaching with an experienced careers coach can help you to clarify what you want and support you to make the change a reality.

Career coaching can help you to feel “more open” to career development options, position yourself for future opportunities, learn how to market your skills, and learn how to access the specialist information and resources you need to make good career decisions.

What a typical career coaching intervention includes

While every client’s coaching needs are different, and programmes of coaching are always made bespoke to meet individual needs, a typical career coaching intervention tends to include:

A matching process to find the right coach for you

Contracting around what you want from career coaching and how you will work with your coach

3-way contracting with line managers where appropriate

Up to 4 action-focussed sessions (more sessions available if appropriate) - typically 60 minutes in length

An appropriate time between sessions (agreed with your coach) depending on how you are using the coaching support

An evaluation process to assess the value of the coaching and its individual and organisational benefit
