Cate I wanted to drop you a note to say an enormous thank you to you and Ian for your support over the last few months, but particularly to you. From our first meeting at which you started to rebuild my morale, confidence and thought-processes you have been a huge help in the job-hunting process: particularly as it was my first time in over 20 years. From taking a fresh look at my CV and helping me to identify where I had added value, to preparing me for interviews by giving me the technique to focus my answers, you have been an invaluable ally in my campaign to get back into work. I think the best thing you have done though is giving me moral support and backbone when I needed it – either before going into yet another interview or reviewing one I’ve come out of to see how it really went – that has been invaluable and I am very grateful.
Cate was wonderful. She boosted my confidence and helped me aim for the jobs I really wanted (one of which I got, within just two months of looking). And she challenged me really constructively, honing my CV despite my conviction that it was perfect as it was – with great results. I don’t hesitate to recommend her.
I just wanted to thank you and your team for the proactive support which has enabled me to take control of my career and achieve more than I ever thought possible in terms of gaining access to a market most professionals see as a one way street. Your extensive recruiter network and ability to access “off general market” (hidden market) opportunities has proven invaluable to me and was the key differentiator to securing my next C-suite role in a completely new sector. Covering all aspects of candidate support from CV construction to interview coaching and ongoing holistic mentoring has set you apart in the market to my mind and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any senior professional looking to take control of their career. Please pass on my thanks to all your team.
Cate and I have got on very well. It was Cate more than anyone who managed to get across how the market was working and what I needed to do in front of head-hunters. I found her advice very helpful. She is also extremely good at managing morale, or at least that was my experience. I also appreciated her pep talks before interviews to make sure I remembered to ask what to expect after the interview.
I asked Cate to review the CV which I believed appropriately detailed my skills and experience. After a number of discussions and several meetings, where I was both challenged and questioned to some depth, my CV has now been completely re written. The document is now succinct and punchy with explicit detail and emphasis on my value and achievements. This has resulted in my first interview in years, giving me confidence and more important a clear sense of my skill set and value.
CH has been assisting me with my career move. Not an easy job in itself as my requirement was to move from one industry, which had been known to me for 20 years, into another! They have been absolutely terrific in helping me achieve my goal. Without them I am certain that it would have not only taken me longer but would have also been less successful.The well balanced mix of focus, empathy and no-nonsense approach all worked extremely well. In terms of communication, I found CH to be open, honest and sincere remaining focused yet supportive throughout this time – two attributes which I found extremely valuable. I very quickly learnt to trust CH and I believe that their experience, excellent follow-through and commitment to me all played a part in this trust.
