    I had the pleasure of working with Vicki through a job change I didn’t know I even wanted. After four rounds of interviews – each punctuated by Vicki’s advice, coaching and feedback – she helped me to negotiate a good package for a great role. I couldn’t have been happier with the whole process from start to finish and always felt that Vicki put significantly greater weight on whether the role was right for me than simply trying to fill the role.

    I turned to Vicki for help planning the next stage…let’s call it the ‘autumn’…of my career. Her straight-talking approach and pragmatic outlook totally resonate with me and the outcomes were just fantastic. Vicki created a personal coaching plan around some specific practical goals and flexed this as needed throughout the process. The end result is regained confidence and eyes wide open to the fact that there’s still so much more in life to come.

    Vicki is a great recruiter. She understands what a client needs and is creative in how to respond to that. Instinctively she knew that the role she recruited me for was right, despite the fact that it was in a different sector. It was about fit, and Vicki had the instinct to recognise that. She was supportive through every step of the process, from the initial call, to interview prep and feedback, through to job offer and first week. So supportive. So kind. So lovely. I can’t recommend Vicki highly enough.

    From my first conversation with Vicki, I knew I had made the right decision by asking her to be my career coach. Vicki is approachable and asks the right questions to enable you to focus on the things that are important to you for your next career move. Throughout our sessions, we identified key strengths, as well as how to overcome imposter syndrome which many women returning to work suffer from. She provided fantastic support during a particularly difficult time.
