An experienced career development practitioner I am part of the Successful Resumes Network, one of Australasia’s leading CV writing providers. I work with each client to assist them in achieving their career goals. By combining current knowledge of the employment market and recruitment processes along with professional writing skills, I offer clients a complete solution to help them secure their next role. I specialise in helping clients:
• Secure a new role or promotion
• Change career direction
• Move company or industry
• Re-enter the workforce after a career break
• Navigate employment after redundancy
• Get a foothold in the employment market

I work with clients from every sector. My clients range from entry level students and skilled tradespeople to experienced managers and senior executives. I have been engaged by senior managers from New Zealand’s largest companies, from the public sector and other organisations. Wherever my clients are in their career I work with them to develop a solution tailored to their needs and budget.

I also facilitate business outplacement services with a client list that includes many businesses and organisations who invest in providing support to staff facing redundancy.
