Of the two job applications she wrote for me, both got me interviews

Before I started working with Suzanne, I was in work but looking for a new post that was commensurate with my skills and experience. I had been feeling bored and frustrated with little idea of how to get out of the rut I was in.

Before we spoke, I was concerned that Suzanne might not understand the kind of work I was looking for, that she might talk like a “recruitment consultant” and offer nothing of value. That the changes to my CV might not bring results.

Suzanne is fun, supportive, knowledgeable, generous, and astute. Thanks to her I now have a rock-solid CV and flexible LinkedIn profile.

Just having so many recruiters knocking at my door now has boosted my confidence greatly. I have had 100% value from her. Of the two job applications she wrote for me, both got me interviews.

I’m so sure of Suzanne’s value that I’ve already recommended her to a few of my colleagues.

She encouraged me to go for it when others hadn’t and now I’m working in exactly the organisation I wanted

I came to Suzanne because I wasn’t happy in my role and kept flitting between hugely different career paths. I was worried something was wrong with me because I wasn’t fitting in at work and seemed to be pushing in the opposite direction to all my colleagues. I was stressed, isolated, misunderstood and worried I was going a bit crazy!

I was originally concerned that Suzanne would tell me to stop chasing my different dreams, but she completely understood me and encouraged me to go for it when others doubted me. And, in a few weeks I am moving country to start my new role in exactly the organisation I wanted.

Her assessment really helped me understand the type of role and organisation I am best suited for. It helped me see that I am obsessed with quality and doing things right – but that this isn’t always possible and not the way most people think. She showed me that I need a role that supports and encourages this part of my personality.

I also feel more confident about the skills I can bring to an organisation. Suzanne made me realise something about me that I didn’t know before; that if I can’t do something immediately, I’ll invest all the effort required to learn it. Recognising that this is a valuable skill that not everyone has makes me feel like I can try moving into different career paths, without having to go back and study first.

Suzanne also helped me to prioritise and delegate some things in my current role that I had been putting off, making time for what I actually want to do and things I am good at.

Suzanne brought great value in return for my investment with her. She was very responsive and reassuring when I needed it the most. She also helped to reinforce my strengths, which was so helpful when I was getting batted down as the ‘odd one out’ at work.

If you’re reading this and you have lost trust in yourself and are not sure what value you are bringing to the working world, working with Suzanne is a great way to remember who you are and what’s unique about you.

I was moved to see how clearly Suzanne saw me

Suzanne bought out in me the truth, the light on my real ambitions and what I wanted to do with my working life. In the complexity of my story and my career she was able to find the path I needed at this point of my life. Her sense of analysis and her vision touched me deeply, I was moved to see how clearly Suzanne saw me.

Beyond being professional, she identified my intrinsic nature, she saw, understood and expressed my needs at many levels. I am so grateful to have worked with her, with her warmth, kindness and accuracy
