I have worked in the career industry since 2000 in a number of roles within the public service. My experience covers face-to-face career planning through to strategy implementation.

Working with clients I am able to offer CV development, job search support and career coaching. I also have experience in delivering career-related workshops, professional development seminars and conference sessions. I have been a team leader with reponsibility for supporting schools to develop their career programmes and still have a particular interest in the transition of young people from education to employment.

Overall I am most interested in people achieving their potential, whether that be through individualised support or through the development of appropriate career planning programmes.
