There is no substitute for having ‘hands on’ experience of hiring and managing people in business, both in boom times and during a recession. I have been Managing Director of a successful financial service business and always enjoyed the ‘people’ side of the business, particularly mentoring and developing talent.
I have furthered this interest by gaining a qualification in Executive Coaching, through a process of classroom learning and actual coaching a wide range of clients.
My work in Executive Search has provided me with an understanding of the demands of hiring managers in many industries. There are key qualities that employers like to see, regardless of the industry.
