By the time we work with individuals with outplacement support many are battered and bruised by their experience of redundancy.  Confidence can be low and many are anxious about an uncertain future. When we work on helping individuals to process…

I highly recommend Coaching from June to help you navigate through your career and get the best from it for you and your company. I have taken steps in my career developments that I would have otherwise missed if I had not taken on coaching sessions. One of the key areas I had concerns about in my career this time last year was if I was a natural leader or not and the impact this would have on my role (and the future role!), and results for my company.

Coaching has allowed me to work through challenges and situations to realise my natural leadership style, and while doing so, develop as a leader. I have more confidence than ever and a heightened sense of self-awareness while working. Looking back on the past year, I see how coaching has kept my focus on formulating and executing action plans to achieve the most successful working year of my career to date. 

Thank you June!

As part of a recent redundancy package I was lucky enough to have the support of June’s career coaching services to help me search and apply for a new job role.

On making contact with June I was offered an introductory one-to-one Skype meeting where we could talk informally about my situation, discuss what I was looking for in a new role, and where best she could support me in the hunt for a new position. Following this initial meeting, June was able to offer me help in a number of areas: periodic one-to-one Skype meetings, support with searching for a suitable new role, help with updating my CV, and interview coaching sessions; all of which I took her up on.

I personally found the one-to-one coaching sessions to be the most helpful of the above services.  Without the periodic career sessions I think there is a tendency to drift and lose focus in what you’re actually looking to achieve, and what specific things you should be doing to land a prospective role;  in this regard having a work-coach to check-in with from time-to-time really helped me re-focus my activities and plan what my next moves should be.

Should anyone else be looking for some employment support, whether that be because of redundancy, or just because they feel they would like a little help with moving from one job/sector to another, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend June’s excellent career support services to them.

When we were in the unfortunate situation to be restructuring this year, I was looking for support for those impacted, to help them process the change and to be best prepared for the future. Sometimes the approach to outplacement from bigger providers can feel a little like a sausage making machine, and I wanted something more personal. Wildwood Coaching’s approach was flexible – tailored to the individuals needs which was ideal given it was a small number of employees with diverse personal circumstances.

I have received positive feedback from employees receiving the services and many have found new roles quickly. On a personal level, I have found June a pleasure to work with – she is interested in understanding our business so the service fits – and throughout, she has been reliable, professional and genuine – providing regular updates throughout so I can track overall status and costs.

This has been a difficult exercise for the business and Wildwood Coaching has made a real impact to how it has been delivered, and how it has felt for those impacted by the changes. A huge thank you from me and I would definitely recommend your services.

June helped me navigate through quite a tough time in my career. Throughout the coaching June provided support and asked the right questions to guide me through the process of finding new work. Her style is friendly and reassuring and the sessions helped guide me through my negative experiences. Her sessions helped me build confidence and helped me to show myself and then potential employers my brand and skillset. In addition, June is well planned, punctual and a good communicator. June also has a great network of people within HR and recruitment which helped my search immensely.

I connected with June on LinkedIn as from her profile and the work she has conducted, I could see that she would be a useful contact to have.

Some months later our Company was in the unfortunate position where, due to some restructuring we needed to also make some redundancies. I contact June to see whether she would be able to assist us to provide some much needed support to those employees affected. She was extremely responsive to my needs, tailoring a programmed just right for our business – being patient with me with my changing needs and always coming up with proposal that would work for us. The feedback I received from the people who attended the face to face workshop was excellent, with many commenting that she had brought a different dimension and forced them (in the nicest way!) to look at what they could do differently and to provide the with not only practical tools to support them in their future career goals, but also the mental fortitude needed to achieve these goals.

I would definitely recommend June and her colleagues as they provide the right level of support when a business is going through any restructuring programme.

This is a LinkedIn recommendation which can be seen on June Hogan’s profile here.

I was recently made redundant and fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to have an in office workshop on overcoming the job loss and career coaching to help me look for new employment.

The workshop was a chance to work with colleagues on finding out more about my character.  My strengths, weaknesses and explaining about the tasks I have come across in everyday life.

The career coaching was helpful in finding out about my personality profile so that I felt more confident.  I also managed to complete my LinkedIn profile through additional coaching.

Another area on which I was coached was interview techniques.  After a couple of meetings by video, I was more confident in going into an interview than before.

I would highly recommend using Wildwood Coaching for any needed career support as their classes are useful with their friendly and helpful staff and after class support.
