UK career coaching and UK job search support

Job Search Support & Career Coaching

If you are a professional seeking work in the UK, you’ll be keen to ensure you find a job quickly and one that will advance your career in the direction you choose. Understanding how the local job market works and how to approach job hunting in the UK will pay dividends on helping you get the job you really deserve.

The UK job market is highly competitive and more dynamic than many other places. For example, there are over 11,000 recruitment agencies! This makes it challenging to get in front of the right people at the right time. UK recruiters also tend to prefer candidates with local experience so it’s often hard to get to the top of their preferred candidates lists and sell your skills in the best possible light.

Understanding how to market yourself, build networks, and avoid potential job search pitfalls is critical if you want to quickly establish a successful career in the UK.

We have partnered with a UK career consultancy, BITE Consulting, to offer various types of support depending on your needs:
