Why choose us?

We understand

We know that as an executive, you face unique challenges in your executive job search and as a result, your needs differ from those of other professionals. We’ll work with you to overcome any obstacles and accelerate your job search. We want you to land your best senior level role yet!

Personalised 1:1 career support

Our personable, flexible service is tailored specifically for you, ensuring you receive precisely the right career support for your individual needs and circumstances. Whether you’re seeking your next role or a complete career change, we’ll work with you to reach a personal solution that satisfies you.

Sensible fee structure

We believe there is no justification for some of the exorbitant fees charged for career coaching services. We aim to be highly cost-effective to ensure our comprehensive, fully bespoke career coaching service is accessible to all senior executives. This is an important investment for you or your company, and we believe in providing value for money, with innovative approaches to your job search. We work with those executives funding their own coaching programmes, and with those where we work as your outplacement provider.

Recruitment industry insights

Understanding recruiters can help you, big time. We help you to learn what other senior level candidates won’t: understand the perspective of senior-level recruiters, headhunters and hiring managers enabling you to build stronger candidate/recruiter relationships. Our recruitment industry knowledge derives from independent research and frequent conversations with a great many recruiters and headhunters globally over the past nineteen years. Our philosophy? ‘You’ll know what we know after working together’.

Collaborative and empowering approach

Our collaborative approach to coaching is characterised by a process of mutual inquiry and constructive reflection. What’s more, our pragmatic executive career coaching programmes will stand you in good stead for your next role and for future roles as you further progress your career. With our ‘teach a person to fish’ style you will develop job search and networking skills and strategies to last a career lifetime.

Professional network growth

We know how valuable peer connections can be; our peers have both experience and contacts to be in a position to potentially facilitate your professional development. That’s why we want to help you to grow your professional network and share strategies, tactics and insights. As a client, you will be granted access to Executive Connexions LinkedIn Group where senior executives get fresh perspectives on how to accelerate career success in today’s competitive market.
