Career coaching 

School leavers, uni students, graduates or career changers in your late teens to late twenties -
any of these thoughts and emotions sound familiar?

  • I don't know what graduate job or career I can do with my degree

  • I like the sound of a particular sector but I'm not sure how to get into it

  • I'm applying for all these graduate jobs but keep getting rejected

  • I'm unsure what to do post school 

  • I'm not sure how to get relevant work experience or internships

  • I've never got my graduate career going

  • All my friends seem sorted

  • I just feel a bit lost

  • I don't know what steps to take

  • I'm feeling a bit scared about interviews


Combine some of these thoughts together with the advice you might be getting from websites, careers services or your parents and friends. 

No wonder you're not satisfied with your progress.


There's too much going on in your head. 


You know you need to do something differently if you want things to change.




Coaching with me will help you

get some clarity about WHAT YOU WANT 

understand WHERE YOU ARE NOW

make a plan and take action to GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE

I would recommend Rachel to anyone that feels a bit stuck with job searching- whether you have no idea what career path to go down or know exactly where you see yourself but need some encouragement and direction. She is so friendly, reassuring and an absolute expert on how to get a job and I have really enjoyed working with her.

A typical 1-2-1 career coaching programme

  • We have an initial chat to find out what you are struggling with and what you want to achieve

  • I create a coaching programme specifically for you, on average lasting six to twelve weeks

  • Each programme involves regular face-to-face or online coaching, self-awareness exercises, templates, resources, how to guides, reviews of application documents and email/phone support 

Topics we might cover

  • Understanding 'YOU' - skills audit, your interests, strengths, values and ideal work environment

  • Researching and choosing career options

  • How to break into a particular sector or change careers

  • Evaluating paths post school or university 

  • Managing your mindset

  • Job or internship search

  • Networking techniques

  • Powerful CVs, applications and LinkedIn profiles

  • Succeeding at interview


My coaching approach

I combine coaching with mentoring and training depending on the results you want. Coaching helps you to understand yourself first. You'll then feel more empowered to move forward and create your own solutions.


I have extensive experience of recruitment, the graduate job market, different job sectors and career change  so I will share the relevant knowledge with you. There is a real skill to effective job search, networking, application and interview so if we are working together in these areas then I will combine training and coaching. Training gives you the basic knowledge but coaching helps you to recognise how to develop these skills further. 

What you'll get from

1-2-1 coaching

  • Space and time to make sense of your thoughts

  • Someone to listen to you without passing judgement

  • Emotional and practical support

  • Self-awareness about what's important to you, what you have to offer employers, your goals, your fears, your obstacles and your inner voice 

  • Clear action plans

  • Lifelong techniques, knowledge and skills to apply to career planning and job hunting

  • Progress in achieving your goals much more quickly and with much less stress than if you struggle on alone


Typically clients work with me over a period of six to twelve weeks, meeting every one to two weeks and investing £700-£1500 in a coaching programme to reach their goals. Each programme involves regular face-to-face or online coaching, self-awareness exercises, templates, resources, how to guides, access to my network where relevant, reviews of application documents and email/phone support 

I also offer shorter programmes with specific aims such as success at interview.
