What Individuals Say
John is a fantastic coach, I have never met anyone with as much dedication to his clients. If you are prepared to work hard then John will match that with his support. John helped me to understand my key skills and strengths. The work I have done with John will serve me well throughout the rest of my career. If you decide to work with him, it will be an excellent investment; I would say it is the best project I have ever worked on. Thank you for everything John.Ben Lawrenson, UK Retail Training Specialist (Audiology)
Working with John was a pleasure. I am in my early 30s and decided to change career. He not only boosted my confidence in what I have to offer but taught me skills that I will use in my job search and my life too.Liezl Bruwer, Digital Marketing Manager
I have had a number of interviews but had been unable to secure a position. It was then that I discovered John’s web site and decided to take up coaching sessions with him... and I never looked back.
I worked with him over a couple of months and the guidance and advice he gave has been invaluable. He has helped so much with interview questions, how to prepare and answer them and how to ‘sell’ myself....even voice projection! This resulted in a successful interview and a job offer within the field I wanted.
If you are willing to put in the work and be challenged I would definitely recommend John’s services... in my opinion second to none! Thank you JohnJoanne, NHS Project Manager
John helped me gain more confidence in answering general and behavioural interview questions and helped me get the job I wanted! I would highly recommend John to anyone for help with interviews and above all else - he really does care about his clients, which is hard to come by these days.James Lloyd, Mechanical Engineer
Wow! What a fantastic experience and immense pleasure to meet with John, real five star service! I’ve always found the interview process very challenging. I met with John on two occasions. He helped me greatly in preparing for an interview which included a presentation.
He taught me all the interview skills I needed to present well, and to answer all relevant behavioural and competency based questions. I couldn’t have been so successful in the entire interview process without his support, skill and professional expertise. I have already recommended him to friends and friends of friends. Thanks again John for all your support. Truly beneficial.Dave O’Toole, Investigations Operations Manager
An excellent Career CoachTerry Pickford, Pickford HR Consultancy
As a senior Captain with 25 years experience flying A330 aircraft for Thomas Cook Airlines it was a shock to suddenly find myself on the job market as a result of the company’s collapse. I had never encountered a competency based interview nor had one of any kind for a quarter of a century!
John was able to fill this gap with a blend of patient coaching and tough grilling. Because of his training I was able to perform well at interview and as a result, start with my new employer in ten days time. Great result! Thank you John.Capt. Richard Mann, Senior Airline Pilot
A disaster involving Britain’s oldest holiday company folding overnight left hundreds of their airline pilots scrambling for the best UK industry jobs opening up in the void. My 35 years of aviation helped me identify where I wanted to go but HOW was I going to get there? John was the key. With his guidance and advice, a solid vehicle of technique, skills, and knowledge was built to convey me through a competency-based selection procedure leading to a job offer with the market leader.Capt. Chas Martin, Airline Pilot
John's career coaching has been invaluable in helping me prepare for the job market following notice of redundancy. I thought I had prepared a relatively okay CV by following some online tips and advice. However, it was only after meeting with John and listening to his understanding of what employers are looking for did I then realise how abject my CV effort was! I now have a CV 'fit for purpose' and I've also received some great job interview coaching from John. Due to John's personality and enthusiasm the coaching sessions were never dull and I now feel much more confident about my future job prospects.Dennis Riley, Admin Manager
John is definitely the best career coach I have ever met and I would not hesitate in recommending him! It is not just the valuable advice he provides but the professional and personalised service he offers.
It’s not worth spending more time writing a CV on your own. With John’s help you will discover your strenghts and achievements which will make you stand out from the other candidates and shine during the interview process.Iliana Salazar, Director of Relationship Management & Compliance
John is an expert in his attitude towards business with a calm, considered approach to his work and support of others.Edward Edgington, Project/Performance/Change Management, Airbus UK, Broughton
When I failed to be re-elected to the National Assembly I faced having to prepare for my first job applications in over 30 years. John's advice and guidance proved invaluable to myself - from practical tips on the best approaches to consider down to the choices for CV layout.Aled Roberts, Welsh Assembly Member, Wrexham.
John provided me with essential career transition support through a number of group workshops and one to one sessions, which meant I really grasped the opportunities ahead of me and continued living the dream. John is inspirational, creative and the ultimate in motivational support, understanding the individual and assisting to find a positive way forward in quite often difficult circumstances. John helped me turn redundancy into sustainable success and happiness for the future.Liz Parry, M & S Money, Chester.
John is a highly knowledgeable and experienced consultant. He has worked with me over the summer of 2015 to get me fit for purpose so I could tackle the job market head on and ultimately get a senior position following redundancy. John has a direct approach, lots of drive and a real passion to help and develop people. I have no doubt that the work John carried out with me was invaluable and as a result my first application landed me a fantastic job! Thank you, John.Sharon Williams, Service Improvement - Housing, Health & Social Care.
A number of years ago I had a vision of providing consultancy support to small and medium sized companies which couldn't afford the fees of the larger consultancy corporations, but I didn't have a clear view of how I was going to achieve this vision.
John's coaching actually gave me clarity in a number of ways: Firstly, his sheer enthusiasm and his ability to develop effective relationships. Secondly, the simple skills and techniques he used to allow me to evaluate all my options and create a successful business model and last, but not least, he allowed me to reflect on my own plans and style to really improve my relationships with clients.Ray Roberts, Performance Matters.
John provided first class support that was a perfect match for my career transition needs. His integrity, expertise, humour and buoyant sense of positivity was a breath of fresh air. As a fluent Welsh speaker he was able to help me draft my CV in two languages – a must in this rural part of Wales. Every employer I approached commented on how different and exceptional my CV was. This raised my confidence level and spurred me on to finding a great job in my locality.
If you are thinking about the right next career move I would highly recommend using Johns services. Thanks very much, John.Bernadette Beddall, Engineering Administrator, MOD Centre, Llanbedr, North Wales.
I recently attended a Career Transition workshop followed by a few one to one sessions. They were run by John Evans and I must say they have helped me move forward in my life. John challenged some of my attitudes and beliefs and helped me become focussed on my next career path and he also instilled in me how important it is to research, plan and commit in order to succeed in the world of work.Mark Challoner, Photographer, Airbus UK, Broughton.
