Been furloughed or in need of a new job? Wondering how you are going to find new opportunities, when every day companies are seemingly either laying off staff or freezing hiring to survive the coronavirus lockdown?

The term “unprecedented times” is banded about, but in the context of today’s UK job market it’s an accurate description. Where do you begin to look – and how do you go about letting organisations you want to work for know about you, when everyone’s at home working virtually, and you can’t meet anyone?

Thankfully help is at hand. Our experienced career coaches have supported professionals like to you to find fulfilling new jobs, in recessions as well as buoyant job markets. Accelerate the time it takes for you to land your next role, and maintain continuity of income, either by working with us one on one or through our new online group coaching programme, starting Friday 1st May 2020.

“Searching for work when unemployed is a fairly isolating task. Effectively the only feedback I received was through rejection. Coaching with The Career Coach was a way of providing me with structure, advice and challenge to maximise my opportunities in and around my search for work.

Coaching provided me with a set of tools to assess where I was in my search for work and what I needed to concentrate on to deliver positive results. It also provided me with a methodology to determine what type of job I would be most happy in, what sectors to concentrate on as well as enabling me to be resilient in my search. Above all it allowed me to feel ok about the downsides of job search – particularly the open-ended nature of the activity – and made me worry less.

I have been offered an interesting interim management role so I will be back to searching for my next opportunity after six months. However the difference next time will be that I have the tools and structure to be able to undertake this search as a result of the coaching that I have received”.
