I provide a variety of careers and leadership workshops.
I currently run workshops for the NHS in career planning and in interview practice. My company has been employed on a freelance basis to run approximately 50 workshops in 2019/20.
These workshops can be adapted to the needs of your organisation.
I also run ‘Train the trainer’ type workshops to teach senior managers to give careers guidance/coaching to their junior colleagues.
Examples of workshops I run:
- planning your career
- CV/cover letters
- being successful at interview
- career resilience
- leadership skills
- train the trainer – careers workshop
- getting into medical school.

Conference workshops/ talks
Are you planning an event for attendees who wish to learn about the latest careers guidance methods?
I am available to speak at conferences on topics covering careers management and planning, supporting people through interviews, and leadership coaching.
Website content writing and editing
I have years of experience on working on websites. I was a senior manager in the NHS and managed a national careers website – the doctors’ sections of www.healthcareers.nhs.uk
I have completed a ‘design for the web’ module at the Open University.
Writing/proof-reading and editing
I can help to make your documents readable and in plain English, so that they are to a professional standard. e.g. National frameworks, policies and guidelines, career profiles.
I have worked on projects managed by Health Education England and NHS England.

I have been involved in creating appropriate content for a career-planning e-module that Health Education England has created for foundation doctors.
CVs and Cover Letters
I can make suggestions for improvements to your CV and/or cover letter. It is helpful for someone to have a fresh eye, to spot any grammar/formatting issues. My background of academic studies and my editing/copywriting experience mean that I have a better-than-average grammar and writing skills, so I can evaluate the quality of your work.
I also have expertise with CVs. I have worked as a freelance Careers Consultant at Imperial College London, and there I helped with a huge number of CVs.
I have also worked extensively with trainee doctors and know what it takes to make a good strong CV for your selection centre evidence folder.
£50 – £85 per CV or cover letter (depending on how much work is needed).
Send your CV/cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will let you know the price.
Please note, I will not write your CV/cover letter for you.
