I am a qualified career coach with an MSc in Organisational Behaviour and a Diploma in Career & Talent Management from Kingston. I am also a mother to two small children. I took a career break after 15 years in executive-level recruitment and interim management. My last corporate role was as Director of the HR Practice at Alium Partners. I did a lot of soul searching when it came to returning to work and made the decision that if I was going to spend time away from my children, it needed to be for something that I loved. So with a long term passion and genuine interest in careers, I re-trained as a career coach specialising in women’s careers and women returning to work after a career break. I am very passionate about the value that those who have taken a career break have to offer and I coach women on both a one to one basis as well as in group workshops on how to build confidence and to create a plan for a successful transition back to work.
