My Journey to Becoming Your Career Optimiser

My Passion For Career Branding

Having spent the past decade growing companies ranging from startups to Fortune 500 across 3 continents, I know what it takes to secure a new role for an applicant. But it was working with blue collar workers in Sheffield, UK that had a profound impact on me. From handwritten CVs to the challenges of digital job applications, I saw the need for tailored career support at a grassroots level. This realisation ignited my passion for career branding and career development, leading me to pursue exhaustive research, courses, and connecting with global thought leaders to fine-tune my expertise.

The World Went Remote

When Covid hit and the world went remote, I had my international network reaching out for support. That's when I knew it was time to grow and create Your Career Optimiser. I began to support professionals in the UK and across Europe. Relying purely on word of mouth, my reputation grew internationally and I have now secured new roles and promotions for professionals in over 20 countries across Europe and North America.

Global Recognition

With over 12k global followers, my goal is to become a leading voice in strategic career branding by working with thought leaders around the world to create pragmatic solutions that will help people take control of their careers and achieve more. As I move forward towards this goal I am delighted to be recognised with the numerous awards I have won and being certified by The British Association of CV Writers.
