Inspiring Career Change Example 


Tony was an experienced I.T. consultant at a career crossroads following redundancy with 10 years left to retirement. Here's how we helped him.     


From employment to contracting - Tony 


Tony was an I.T. consultant in his early 50's with over 30 years experience, who like many other people, had been employed all his working life and was made redundant in the downturn. We helped Tony to see what was important to him - his values, what his unique skills and experience were and how marketable he was. We shared new career options and ways of using his skills in different ways. He launched himself as an experienced, personable business analyst/project manager who could also mentor teams and deliver workshops, providing huge value to cash strapped cautious companies wanting to realise efficiencies and have value for money from their investment.


We helped him to have both confidence and a strategy to market himself as a contractor, a wise move in the market conditions and a great way of using his vast experience and knowledge. He secured high profile contracts including at the University of Oxford reviewing development lifecycle processes. This allowed the business systems team to provide the colleges with accurate and achieveable proposals and to manage projects in a more structured way.   

"If you feel your core skills and expertise are not fuelling your career effectively, or if you just hanker for some sort of change of direction, Rachel's guidance is invaluable. Her course helped me to look in on myself and understand what was important and what I was capable of. She gave me the courage to change and I can thoroughly recommend it."
