A journey starts with one step in the right direction!

Career Consultation

Kcoach offers specialist advice to career changers, new graduates, NGO/VSO returned volunteers, overseas workers and people in transition with a focus on international development.

You can make assumptions, spend hours going down blind alleys and simply wasting your time and money or in a one-off consultation you will gain clarity about what you can do to improve your employability and plan a strategy to reach your goals.

Your consultation is a tailor-made conversation that will help you gain insight into your particular situation and you will get advice on what you need to do. Based upon your questions it gives you:

  • Advice on improving your CV and applications.

  • Web based resources and job sites to help you.

  • A strategy to achieve your goals.

  • An expert opinion from a neutral outsider.

Based on your guidance, I created a new resume. Prior to speaking with you I had applied for 14 roles, and heard back nothing. I sent the new resume out to a few jobs to test it: out of the 7 applications I made, 4 progressed to the interview stage, and I was offered 2 roles!

You might like to read more comments from previous clients before you decide to buy.


We can talk by phone, Skype or meet face to face in south/central London. I am very experienced working with many international clients by Skype, phone and email. (Overseas clients make the call.)

For your convenience careers advice sessions are available day or evening time and also some Saturday mornings.


If emailing with an enquiry, please include your name, phone number, and the nature of your enquiry and also attach a copy your CV, details at contact.



Your straight talking was refreshing, although not always what one wants to hear.
TA - International Manager


Advice offered is based upon 20 years sector experience of the thousands of people and their questions; it's also based on professional experience of working in the sector, in the UK and overseas, and in providing information about jobs in International development and recruitment.

I can't advise on specific specialisms, but can advise and set you on your way through my expert sector knowledge and straightforward style. I expect you to be committed and serious about moving forward, however I can only guide - you have to do the work!

Ongoing Help When You Need It!

If you need a follow-up session or longer-term career help, then you can get extra help as required. In coaching we'll start to consider your longer-term career goals and what you need to do to achieve them within your time frame.

Over the years many clients have dipped in and out as they have needed support.


Fees are payable by PayPal or by bank transfer and are required before a booked session.
