Workshops/other servicesWorkshops

My company provides 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
  • how to manage stress and cope with adversity
  • building confidence
  • leadership skills
  • train the trainer – careers workshop
  • getting into medical school.

 

Testimonials from recent workshops:

“Useful session. Thank you, useful tips for application/interview. Highlights need to practice.”  F2 doctor, Kent

Train the trainer – careers support training workshop:

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. This was due to the fact I managed the doctors’ sections of a national careers website – 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. For example, national frameworks, policies and guidelines, career profiles.

I have worked on projects managed by Health Education England and NHS England.

E-learning modules

My experience in this area is in creating content for a career-planning e-module that Health Education England 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 excellent grammar and writing skills. Therefore, I can evaluate the quality of your work.

I also have expertise with CVs. Having worked as a freelance Careers Consultant at Imperial College London, therefore I helped with a huge number of CVs.

In addition, having worked extensively with trainee doctors, I know what it takes to make a good strong CV for your selection centre evidence folder.
