Job Search Coaching

Looking for a new role can be a stressful experience, knowing where to start and what might work, and equally, what strategies to avoid. Our coaches have a great deal of experience in this area, so you needn't be alone. Talking to someone with an understanding of your challenge, with hints and tips which relate to your particular circumstances can be an enormous comfort and they are available to help guide you through this process.

Our Coaches

Over the years, we’ve built up a great network of career coaches both internally and externally. We often run training sessions for our candidates, but if you’d like to use their services personally, please click below for details:

Julie Barnes

Julie has been coaching people through job and career change for over 10 years.

She started her career as a marketing graduate working in the healthcare industry where she worked on brand, own label and new product development. She decided to travel to Australia in her early 20s which was a great character building experience!

She pursued her career in marketing and started as a line manager which she quickly realised was her passion.

Her marketing career was in the foodservice and retail industries working for large blue-chip organisations.

In her late 30s she decided to change her own career and the catalyst was a walking and coaching holiday called The Big Stretch. Julie qualified as a coach in 2004 and took a big leap of faith to become self-employed in 2005. She now works in 3 main areas: Career Coaching, Outplacement and Leadership Development.

She works with a diverse range of international clients which she loves and has a great track record in supporting people to achieve their career goals.

Her style is to quickly get to know her clients so that she can help them to get clarity on what they value in their work and life and what they specifically want to get from their next role. This is often a creative discussion to crystallise the options and then refine these to the favourite options.

Once the client knows what they are aiming for Julie can help them with the practical elements of their job search: creating an effective CV, preparing a LinkedIn profile, job search strategy, preparing and performing at interview, building confidence and visualising success.

Nick Gendler

Nick has been supporting people through job and career change for over twenty years, first as a recruiter for market research professionals before setting up Workjoy in 2002, where he continues to support individuals in a very personal and individual way as a career coach and outplacement consultant.   

He is an expert in his field, helping job seekers with all aspects of their job search from career planning, CV design and networking to video interviewing, where he explores answering difficult questions and rapport building. The aforementioned skills lend support to Nick’s fundamental mantra; it’s not the person who’s best at the job who gets the job, but the person who is best at getting the job who gets the job. If you want the job, you’ve got to make them like you!

Nick is also a qualified counsellor and applies these accompanying skills when required to reach his clients on a deeper level, helping them to overcome personal barriers in their quest to secure a new role. Equipped with an MBA, Nick is no stranger to the business world and has a wide understanding of the challenges presented by different functional roles and organisations.

For a no obligation chat to see if Nick is the right person for you to work with, please get in touch by phone or email.
