Are you an executive, a leader, or a professional seeking a meaningful career change?

What is career coaching?
Career coaching helps you to explore your options and make the right decisions when considering, or faced with, change at work.
Most of us experience periods of change during our career. Sometimes it’s strategic and straightforward, at others forced and unwelcome. In both scenarios, a bfpeople career coach will help you to understand your strengths, options, and navigate your personal development and future career.
Using a combination of discussion and information from a variety of written and psychometric exercises, your career coach will work with you to help you see and think about things in a different way. This is likely to include:
Why use bfpeople career coaching?
bfpeople has been working with people for nearly 30 years. Our experience of recruitment, assessment and coaching, coupled with our in-depth knowledge of the jobs market gives you access to the most up to date and relevant career coaching expertise available.
While many people choose career coaching after losing a job, we also work with individuals who are proactively taking control of their career. Ambitious people want to manage their career through increasing their self-awareness and developing a positive career plan.
You might want to explore making the move from corporate life to self employment, or a start up operation. An objective analysis of your strengths and suitability is an invaluable element of your planning and decision making process.
We have worked with hundreds of people facing career change. Many sponsored by their organisation as part of a package to leave, and others who are taking responsibility for their own career. We work in all industry sectors, both private and public, and with people who are in, or seeking to secure, leadership and management positions.
What’s my commitment?
All bfpeople career coaching programmes are bespoke – you are never tied to a long term commitment. Sometimes you only need one two-hour session to make a breakthrough that works for you. Sometimes it takes a little longer. We will discuss your situation and objectives with you at the outset, agree a plan, a timescale and a cost. Our solutions-focused coaching style means that we don’t spend hours on reflective navel-gazing – we concentrate our efforts on finding solutions rather than problems, and on developing strengths rather than worrying about irrelevant weaknesses.
Most sessions are conducted by Microsoft Teams and can be held out of work hours. Face to face sessions can be arranged subject to geography, logistics and availability.
The initial discussion is always free of charge.
