What I do

How I do it

Where I do it

I’ve interviewed thousands of candidates and offered hundreds of new and exciting roles. I’ve also rejected thousands of highly experienced and extremely capable individuals who could of been offered these roles.


So what stopped these people getting that dream job or internal promotion?


In most cases it is inadequate interview preparation; and not having the conceptual understanding of what interviewers are actually looking for when they ask behavioural and competency based questions.


To me, the nature of an interview is very similar to playing a game.  If you understand the rules and if you put in the right level of preparation; you stand a better chance of winning and this is where I can help you.

I provide 1 to 1 interview coaching sessions to help you understand the interview process, improve your interview technique and help you build and shape your examples.


I’ll explain what companies are looking for, what types of questions they ask, why they ask them and what they typically want to hear.  


I’ll explore your experience in more depth to extract and focus on the aspects of your career that need to be highlighted; and work with you so that you can articulate and promote these experiences effectively to your interviewers.


I can also talk you though and conduct a full mock interview with you and provide help and guidance on how to improve.


The services I offer will always be tailored to suit your needs and will focus on either the specific vacancy/client you’ve applied for or on your general area of expertise.

For anyone thinking of using this service I will arrange a FREE initial 10-15 minute telephone conversation to understand your situation, your needs and answer any questions you might have.

From this we can collectively agree the type of session most appropriate for you and book a convenient date and time.


A typical session lasts c.90mins and would normally cover the following:

  • A re-cap on your situation, the role / company you are interviewing for and your personal objectives.

  • Conceptual overview of the interview process from both the candidate and company perspective.

  • A walk through of your CV and experiences.

  • Building your  interview examples using the S.T.A.R methodology.


Additional Services Include:

  • Full mock interview with feedback and advice.

  • 60 minute telephone / skype / facetime based service for those based further afield.

Face to face:


The most effective way for me to impart my knowledge and for me to see how you will act/react in an interview scenario.  Sessions can be arranged at a convenient environment near you.  

I am happy to travel c.1 hour from Malmesbury / Chippenham at no additional charge.


Telephone / Skype / Facetime:  Effective and efficient way of improving your interview skills from the comfort of your own home.  Great for those based further afield.
