I sought Elizabeth's help when I was applying for a public appointment. Having always been employed in the private sector it felt somewhat out of my comfort zone, and due to being in my role for some time, I hadn't actually had an interview for years and was feeling nervous! Elizabeth was so helpful and talked me through all of the areas I could be challenged on in a mock interview. She then provided feedback and tips for improvement. I felt as confident and prepared as I could be when I went into the interview .... And was happily appointed following the process. I cannot recommend her enough and I will not hesitate to approach her again should I need further help in the future.
Elizabeth is an excellent coach with clear and insightful understanding of employer needs and candidate skills. I thoroughly recommend the Skills Clinic to scaffold, structure and massively sharpen up interview technique and quality of response. This will give you more confidence as well as understanding of yourself and your skills. As a result of coaching from Elizabeth for three different roles, I have been successful in portraying myself in the most authentic and optimal way possible, securing three promotions thanks to this input. Thank you Elizabeth!
I’ve really enjoyed working with Jane and noticed an immediate improvement in my communication and leadership skills. It was particularly useful to role play workplace challenges and get practical advice on how to develop new capabilities. I look forward to working together again in future!
I had one session with Matthew before my interview. His communication before the session was really good. The session itself really helped me to improve the structure of my examples. His advice undoubtedly helped me to succeed at my interview. Would definitely recommend.
Highly recommended. I used the Interview Skills Clinic after failing to get through a succession of Scottish Government and UK civil service interviews, and it worked! My coach, Elizabeth, is familiar with Civil Service and Scottish Government interview processes. She helped me to think critically about how competency-based interviewing works and to anticipate what questions might come up. She also worked with me to prepare a selection of answers, which she then honed through a mock interview. She was robust in her feedback and advice, which meant I really dealt with my weak areas and developed better answers that brought out my strengths. I was then successful in the very next interview I attended - thanks in large part to Elizabeth's advice.
Getting information about how Civil Service interviews work and understanding the methods was invaluable. A recording of mock interviews allowed me to playback and identify weaknesses and improve. I definitely would not have progressed without Interview Skills Clinic and just going in blind. Thanks.
As an MSc graduate trying to get into a competitive, COVID-affected job market, I turned to interview coaching after an unsuccessful interview. Elizabeth was lovely, very helpful, supportive and personable throughout the process, and gave me tons of useful feedback. More than that, the fact that you get recordings of the interview sessions to watch back is priceless as it really helps you gain insight into how you're coming across during interview settings. After two coaching sessions I attended a single interview and secured a job offer for the role I wanted. Interviewing is an alien process to most, so I would recommend coaching to anyone going through the process, especially for the first time - it saves you learning from your mistakes the hard way and missing hard-won opportunities. Undoubtedly, Elizabeth gave me the tools to come across well during interview and to sell my skillset and experience to the IV panel. I'm sure my job search would have been much longer without her!
I was privileged to have Jane as my coach during my preparation for job interviews. I was looking to progress my career and found the Interview Skills Clinic online. I found Jane to not only be professional but highly supportive and fundamental to building my confidence in the interview scenario. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Jane and would not hesitate to do so in the future. I recommend her to you as an interview coach without reservation. She has made a huge difference to the way I approach job interviews and I have succeeded in being offered my dream role...
For anyone who has never got why interviews don't go their way, I would highly recommend this company. I really stress over interviews and a run of bad experiences had dented my confidence severely. Jane made me go through how to present myself, raising a mirror to how I portray myself and giving me a valuable insight into what the interviewers need to fill their checkpoints. It was painful and exhausting at times, but her constant support and positivity encouragement gave me the energy to push through. Her pointing out my skills and experience made me realise I actually have a lot to offer! Happy to say that I succeeded with this interview. I am very grateful to Jane for all she did!
I had a couple of really amazing, to the point and productive interview preparation sessions with Matthew for the civil service jobs interviews. The result is 7 interviews, 4 offers, 3 jobs in reserve lists after passing all of the interviews, this speaks for itself. Looking at the scores and feedback, I would have fallen slightly short in civil service interviews despite being good at interviewing for "regular" jobs. The information from the sessions also helped me to polish my CV, personal statements and behaviours explanations. I ended up landing the position that I didn't expect to get, basically a dream job. Thank you.
