A career as a contractor:
Clare had been in permanent employment for 15 years when we spoke with her about an opportunity to work as a freelance contractor. Whilst the opportunity was interesting in a technical sense it also offered her a much better work/life balance.
We were able to guide Clare throughout her transition to a different career path. We helped her to establish a company through which she could operate as a contractor and ensured that the change was smooth in all respects. Whilst the role was notionally temporary Clare is still operating with the same client some 4 years later.
A career as a permanent employee:
Stephen was looking for an interesting career change. He had been operating comfortably with the same company for over 5 years and just wanted a change. An opportunity in Amsterdam seemed attractive as working abroad was always sitting in the background as one of Stephen’s ambitions.
We accompanied him to the interview and introduced him to other people that we had placed there, so he could hear 1st hand about their experiences with the company and what life was like living in the Netherlands. Stephen accepted his subsequent offer and has settled into life in the Netherlands. He’s been there for nearly 5 years now and progressing well and happily – still with the same company. We still meet up with him every time we visit.
