Testimonials

Kieron, Parent - 18 year old school leaver apprenticeship student / aspiring to work in Financial Services

Nadia has been helping my son apply for school leaver apprenticeships in the FS Sector. Her experience, enthusiasm and knowledge of the industry and processes used by employers have been invaluable and the online sessions they've had have been incredibly useful in building his confidence, giving him structure and quality content for his interviews and providing a huge support amount and encouragement. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to get onto the first rung of their career ladder.

Paul, Parent - 18 year old school leaver apprenticeship student / aspiring to work in Financial Services

Nadia provided an excellent service for my son in preparing for Apprenticeships. She carefully went through interview preparation, researching an organisation, building a network and generally encouraging and supporting him to be confident in a situation that would be new to most 18 year olds. She is very enthusiastic and shows a lot of passion for supporting young people.

Julian, Parent to recent graduate looking for career guidance for his son

It was great to see Nadia giving her inspiring webinar ‘Nail your Interview’. Our son has just left university in what has got to be the toughest environment ever and will need all the help he can get. I firmly believe Nadia has helped him move from a rather shambolic venture into the job market, to a structured, considered and far more successful journey. Since applying her recommended techniques and practices, he has secured job interviews he would most certainly not have been considered for previously. Nadia’s webinar reflected her extensive experience and was ’’channeled’’ into giving motivating and practical advice that could be put in place immediately. I would highly recommend Nadia to any school leaver or graduate looking to fulfil their potential with job search assistance and interview skills – it worked for my son!

Sana, Computer Science undergraduate

As a student attending Nadia's "Nail your Interview" webinar and listening to all the useful knowledge she had to share, it is clear that her passion lies in helping to empower young individuals hoping to enter the highly competitive job market. I was able to leave with invaluable information which will help me with any future job applications. Thank you, Nadia! 

Jordan, recent Graduate

Nadia has put extensive time and effort into helping me attain a summer internship. Really getting to know my attributes and weaknesses, Nadia was able to provide me with the best advice and steer me in the right direction to kickstart a successful career. I would highly recommend Nadia to anyone in the same scenario as I was in a year ago. Her recent voluntary webinars highlight the commitment and desire to help out her clients. Thank you for all your help.

Amanda, Parent, 2 undergraduate daughters

With two daughters at university, it was fantastic to listen in to Nadia’s recent “Nail your Interview” webinar and hear her impart such valid and excellent advice on how to take the first steps along the (often overwhelming) path to your preferred career. Her unquestionable enthusiasm to help young people be successful; the passion with which she imparts her messages; and, moreover, the relevance of her advice based on her many years of experience both within the business/recruitment world and as a parent herself, made attending her webinar an invaluable experience for both my daughters and for me. To date, my daughters’ careers advice has been mainly based on online profile assessments carried out at senior school, with little advice on the application process itself. To access such excellent, comprehensive and comprehensible careers advice, all within the space of an hour, has truly been a godsend. My daughters now have direction, are already proactively pursuing Nadia’s recommendations and I, as a parent, cannot thank her enough for her support, which I know will be ongoing.

Richard, Parent, 6th form student considering university and apprenticeship options

As a parent of a student seeking high quality advice on potential careers in business and finance, Nadia provided excellent advice and guidance, ensuring my son had a good understanding of the paths to his preferred career and the best options for success including potential university options. She continues to provide links to interesting options and avenues we hadn’t previously explored. Very professional and highly proactive.

Natalie, parent to Oxford English undergrad student

Nadia’s passion and support in her role as Mentor to our daughter was excellent. I always found Nadia to be approachable, v friendly and supportive of my daughter and myself when my daughter was applying for internship programs. Nadia never let things slip through the net: she would always bring to our attention any upcoming and application dates/deadlines, plus she’s very up to dates on lots of internship programs companies run for students. This was the most valuable information! It saved a lot of time reading through all the websites etc..she was a big help in navigating the sometimes tricky application process. I also appreciated her sense of responsiveness towards any outstanding issues that needed to be resolved fairly quickly, and kept to strict company deadlines. Nadia gave our daughter many valuable interview tips and suggestions, plus she is very straightforward, professional, polite and most importantly very honest. She gets things done, she’s a closer! I look forward to continue working with her as she supports our daughter, and hopefully our other two children once they are ready to start their job search : I know our kids will be in good hands!

Nadia is very honest and friendly I highly recommend her services to anyone just out of university applying for a job , I especially liked how personal the experience was making the process more detailed and fun.

Nadia’s seminars and Q&A sessions have helped me greatly in my preparation for the graduate role search in consulting in the upcoming autumn.

Meg, incoming analyst at Deloitte

I first started working with Nadia when I needed some help and guidance on how to pave my way towards the world of consulting. Nadia has strong expertise in the finance sector which meant that as a career's coach, she had a whole plethora of resources and great insight into the industry. In the first two hours I met with Nadia, I learned more about consulting and increasing my employability than I thought would be possible! Nadia's experience in this line of work shines through from her clear cut plans, strategic thinking and great insider tips. The best thing about having Nadia as a career's coach is that the sessions are completely personalised and tailored to the individual's needs - it didn't feel like I was having copied content regurgitated at me but rather Nadia would listen to exactly what I had done, figure out where I was lacking, provide guidance, support and a whole range of varied and accessible resources. Nadia is a bubbly personality who is passionate about helping others to succeed. We regularly keep in touch and I look forward to continuing to work with her as I get closer to jumping on the career ladder. If you're an undergrad that feels lost about what to do or how to get started, Nadia is the woman to go to!

Harrison, Geography Graduate

Nadia's tailored service in mentoring made the job application process focused and efficient. I was recommended her services through a friend and was pleasantly surprised with how friendly and personable she made the experience. After receiving very little feedback from the jobs I was applying for it was incredibly positive to hear some real feedback in how I was approaching applications and interviews and, importantly, where I could stand to improve. Her help shaping my CV and cover letters was incredibly beneficial in adding value to my application and improving my chances of traction with employers. Nadia's insightful honesty and constructive advise helped provide me with the direction needed to ensure no job opportunity was wasted and her thorough preparation assured I was confident and ready for any interview. Would absolutely recommend her services to anyone who is in need of advice or direction in the application process.

Taylor - FinTech Graduate Applicant

Nadia was absolutely amazing, she helped me with all aspects of my career journey. From the initial phone call we tailored the specific areas I needed to address in finding a graduate job. From day one my understanding of what’s needed to successfully land a job increased. Nadia helped me with everything from increasing the quality of my CV and cover letters to helping me find roles I would genuinely enjoy post-education. The area I felt most beneficial was in preparing me and boosting my confidence before interviews, I went in with a clear mind and prepared for the questions ahead. I couldn’t recommend Nadia more!!!!

Neneh - HSBC Global Banking and Markets, Cardylitics

Nadia has played an important role and has been a key support throughout my graduate application process. After finishing university, I still didn’t know what career path to follow. I had regular meetings with Nadia, where she helped me identify my skills, what I enjoyed doing and highlighted career options where both my skills and job satisfaction would be maximised. My classes with Nadia boosted my confidence and helped me be fully prepared for interviews and assessment centres. Following receiving a place on the graduate HSBC Global Banking programme, Nadia advised me on the advantages of working in the different banking sectors and the career progression, connections and bonuses associated with each.
