When the opportunity of a career move came along I had been working for the same company for many years so had next to no experience of current interview techniques.
Elizabeth was very patient, she helped me understand the interview process and offered me great insights into what the interviewer would be looking for, in both strengths and competency based questions.
In our first Skype session she helped me articulate my answers and understand how to best prepare for the interview. During our second Skype session a few days before my interview she offered me very constructive feedback on how I could improve even further and really helped me approach the interview with confidence.
Thanks to Elizabeth’s invaluable expertise and knowledge I was called back for a second interview and was offered the role!
I really cannot thank Elizabeth enough for all her help and I highly recommend her coaching to anyone who needs support with interview techniques.

Before I had a session with Elizabeth, I was unsure as to how I should approach a forthcoming assessment centre for a place on the graduate scheme of a Big Four accounting firm. I had a tendency to lose track of what I wanted to say, and I wasn't sure which experiences best demonstrated the key values of the firm. However, with her insightful suggestions and deep understanding of both 1-on-1 interview and group exercise techniques, I felt assured and confident in my approach to preparation. As a result of her coaching, I had a clear strategy going into the AC, and was offered a position on my first attempt. I would wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth to anyone seeking to hone their interview technique, build real confidence and bring out their full potential in the interview process.

Matthew was very useful in helping me prepare for a children's therapist job. After a few failed interviews, due to a lack of confidence and limited experience of interviewing, Matthew helped me build a structure around how I answer questions and also build self confidence about the experience I had and ability to talk about it. I felt much more capable to answer questions in my interview the following week and managed to land the job!

I highly recommend Matthew's interview skills coaching. Matthew was brilliant, I was able to really refine my responses for the Civil Service Faststream interview and build confidence. I was much better prepared for the day and I wouldn't have passed without his help!

I would highly recommend investing in Elizabeth's services if you are applying in a competitive application process such as the civil service. Having had one previous interview which I did not pass, I decided that it would be a worthy investment to better understand a competency based interview. Following an interview coaching session, on the next interview I managed to make improvements, enough to get me on to a reserve list at least. In time with the help of Elizabeth I managed to get on to a few more reserve lists until finally passing an interview with an offer. Her guidance is extremely helpful especially if you are coming from outside the civil service as she is able to provide direction and clarity on where to focus. This was important to me in order to remain positive and persistent in the applications. Thanks Elizabeth for your help!

Elizabeth’s insightful questioning and industry awareness has ensured my success in securing two positions that were important to me. Elizabeth’s ability to clearly decipher what organisations are looking for from the job description/ specification is helpful and the coaching/ questioning style used is thorough yet supportive. For me this approach works in building confidence and clarity and was a significant factor in my success.. Thank you Elizabeth.

I highly recommend Elizabeth's interview skills coaching and I plan to use her again in the future. Elizabeth was pleasant and generous with her practical advice and feedback throughout my 90 minute skype coaching session. I decided to make the investment after failing numerous Civil Service Grade 7 interviews. Elizabeth understood and shared what the interviewers are looking for at that level. Thanks to Elizabeth's coaching, I passed my interview and landed a G7 job within 2 months.

Elizabeth was extremely helpful in my preparation for a graduate interview. She had an extensive knowledge on both strengths and competency based interviews and was able to effectively articulate examples to aid my own understanding of them. Additionally, she was able to quickly and effectively delve in to my own personal strengths and weaknesses in and interview environment and help me improve my technique. I highly recommend Elizabeth for anyone else who is in need of advice when it comes to interviews.

Elizabeth's insight really helped me come to understand the new civil service approach after having left for the private sector. Her advise ensured that I was able to communicate my examples in a way that maximised the scorers I achieved. This resulted in my examples being concise and allowed me to remain adaptable to respond to the additional questions that now form part of the new approach.

I looked Elizabeth up after being unsuccessful with many applications for promotion. I had attended a few interviews but found my main problem to be not hitting the mark in the competency sifts.I was becoming quite frustrated knowing I had plenty of work experiences at the required level which wasn’t leading to interviews. Elizabeth spent time going through my applications and explained where I was falling down, and what I needed to do sell myself effectively and concisely.Following some important feedback sessions, and feeling like something had finally clicked, I was invited to interview on my first application. I was able to give a confident interview using my deeper understanding of what was required by the competency framework – a first in a long time! I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone experiencing similar issues.
