I am passionate about helping aspiring professionals thrive in the careers they love. I know how recruiters think and I know how personal coaches work - so you get 2 for 1 with me! My career coaching is heart led, based on deep insights and working in alignment with your true values, strengths and motivators. I am all about results (and gimmick-free!) and offer a unique combination of deeper level work based on my training and practice as a personal coach with the application of specific recruitment knowledge and skills, including CVs, Cover letters, Applications, Interviews, Offers. My speciality is Interview coaching - my recent clients have secured roles in HSBC, Goldman Sachs, PWC, Oxford Instruments, Imperial College, Frontier Economics, Tottenham Hotspur FC – the range is phenomenal! I have also coached clients from employment into self-employment and launching their own business and those who have left their business and want to return to being employed. My 25+ years in international recruitment and education management business have given me the commercial acumen needed to integrate business coaching into my work as well and to confidently coach clients from various industries.
Hunting for my first job following my PhD felt like a much more daunting and unstructured task prior to Jelena's excellent coaching. I was focused on what jobs I could fit my skills to rather than what type of role would suit me. Jelena helped me to clarify what was most important to me in a career and to explore which companies did and did not share my core values. Finding positions that matched my values was key to allowing me to apply for jobs with confidence and enthusiasm. Moreover, her interview preparation taught me how to demonstrate my competencies and passion effectively. With Jelena’s help I secured the first job I interviewed for! A big part of this success was Jelena’s support in finding a role that matched me so well." - Will, Economic Consulting
Jelena is an excellent career fulfilment coach. She has the right balance of calm, empathy, support and challenge to support you to be the best version of yourself. She also knows the right assessment tools to help you reflect on your leadership style and builds on the results well to help you connect the dots. Just half way through the total number of coaching sessions I was able to secure a new role, having had specific guidance on application and interview preparation. Thank you!” -Oonagh, HR Director
“Jelena is an amazing coach! She is very professional, reliable and simply the one person who helped massively to overcome some patterns of behaviour that I couldn’t do with other personal and professional development work. Nobody coaches with such amazing variety of techniques and tools. She encouraged me to take ownership of my own talents in a very organised and objective way leading me to a new career path. I do appreciate the trust, clarity and confidence I’ve gained from working with Jelena and WhatWork.” -Maria, UK Financial Lead
