Client - The Essential CV Makeover For Mums Coaching

Amy A

I reached out to Becky having met her during maternity leave. Becky was extremely friendly and struck me as someone who knew her stuff. I wasn’t wrong. Becky supported me in re-working my cv, bringing out all the key elements and tailoring it to the job at hand. Becky worked with me flexibly and at pace. Becky helped increase my confidence at a time when I was returning to the covid workplace after a year off and enabled me to feel I could go for promotion, despite having been away. Becky puts you at ease and gives you the confidence and tools you need to press ahead to where you want to be. I would definitely think about calling on Becky again in future and would recommend.

Moving forward

Deborah S.

As a mum of a three year old, working with Rachel really helped me focus my mind on my career aspirations. Our sessions provided quality time to discuss ideas, work through obstacles and clarify my thought processes, from my working style and values to the practical requirements of taking the next step.

Time out to reflect

Yvonne M.

I found it really useful to have someone to support me who was objective and creative in discussing different ideas. It was helpful to take time out and reflect on what my work/life priorities were and I had a clear action plan to work on following the coaching programme.

Focused my thoughts about returning

Anna M.

Becky really helped me focus my thoughts when I was thinking about going back to work after my first baby. She helped me with my flexible work options and gave me the confidence to know what I was entitled to ask for. Nothing was too much trouble and it was lovely to have the professional support over such an important time.

Direction and clarity

Charlotte C.v

Rachel's advice has been invaluable and given me so much more confidence about my future career, how to search for roles and the flexibility I would like.
