My coach was excellent. With his guidance I applied and was successful in obtaining a job that I was nervous even to apply for. He provided tips, talked through options and provided a calming presence during a stressful time.

I would highly recommend him and this service to anyone looking for their next role
My coach has been a wonderful help - he inspired me and gave me a boost of confidence when I needed it most!

Well recommended to drive Adzuna forward, by showing that it is more than a job site - it is a reliable and valuable 360 degree tool.
I felt really comfortable and secure having the awareness that there is someone wanting to help. I am very grateful to my coach and Adzuna for creating that comfort space for me.

Looking for a job can be confusing and frustrating and having the opportunity just to discuss your issues with a professional can be very helpful.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can career coaching help?

Whether you’re just starting out, or looking to change careers, our career coaches will be a dedicated ally in your job search, bringing unbiased, expert advice and a contagious passion for helping you realise your career goals.

What is the role of a career coach?

A career coach's role is to support you with all aspects of your career progression, from creating your job search strategy, to reviewing your CV and guiding your interview preparation. Just like a sports coach doesn't play in the game, your career coach isn't going to conduct your job search for you - it's up to you to win the game! Instead, think of your coach as a great resource to help you strategise and plan for success.

What is the difference between a life coach and a career coach?

A career coach supports with practical advice on how to improve your CV, nail an interview or develop an actionable plan for getting your dream job. A life coach, on the other hand, helps you answer the more existential questions and works with you to set personal goals.

Will this cost me anything?

No. Adzuna career coaching is absolutely free. Really. We're making career coaching available to everyone, no matter what your means or what stage you’re at in your career. Our Company Mission is to help people find better, more fulfilling careers - if we succeed in helping our users achieve their career goals, we're also achieving our mission as a company.

How do I get the most out of career coaching?

The most important thing is to be ready to think in new ways about your current situation and willing to invest the time and energy needed to get the maximum outcome. You will be challenged in a safe environment, so don’t shy away from dreaming big. Your career coach is on your side!

How should I prepare for a career coaching session?

Before your session, have a think about where you are currently in your career, where you want to be and what challenges you're facing. Take notes and have these with you on the call. Make sure your CV is up-to-date and that you've run it through our ValueMyCV tool. Set time aside in a quiet place for your call and make sure to be on time! Remember, career coaching involves commitment and effort - after your session, your coach will prepare an action plan for you to follow, so be prepared to dedicate some time to work on these. Be open, honest and willing to commit to making changes to help you get to where you want to be!

What questions should I ask a career coach?

Your career coach is an expert in job search and career development and will listen to your concerns without judging. You can ask practical questions about CVs, interviews and ways to boost your job search - or more open questions like "how can I find more fulfilling work?" or "how can I find out more about the tech industry?". Always remember that you are the leading expert on your own career. Questions like "what job should I do?" or "which qualification should I get?" are ultimately ones that only you can answer. Rather than seeking simple answers to big questions, work with your coach to create a structured plan and set the time aside to put it into action.

Will my career coach find me a job?

Your career coach will empower you with the structures, techniques and insights that you need to take your career progression into your own hands. We'll help you strategise and support you every step of the way, but we cannot find a job for you or connect you directly with employers - that's up to you. You can make good and regular use of Adzuna's search function to connect with a constant stream of new opportunities and apply the strategies you have agreed with your coach to make the most of them.
