Certificate of competence.  

When you apply for job you’re up against loads of other people with similar CVs, but what if you could provide evidence that you are the one candidate that can guarantee that you have the right skills?  

We don’t think that it’s good for the industry that competent, intelligent, effective Engineers find it so difficult to secure employment because they are lacking experience or evidence of their competence.  

In our experience, the length of time served as a site engineer is not necessarily an indication that best practice is always applied and correct record keeping procedures followed. We believe that if you can demonstrate the right skills, abilities and attitudes to us then you will make an excellent site engineer.

We believe it is in the interest of both the employer and the candidate that there is a means of proving the candidates ability specifically in relation to setting out tasks.

The Setting Out for Construction Certificate of Competence certifies that you possess all of the requisite practical skills for the jobs that you need to do every day on site and means that you can land your perfect job, no sweat.

Career planning.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Have you made a strategic plan about where you want to be eventually?
  • What career move do you need to make now so that you are on track for your dream job in 10 years time?
  • Have you actually pinpointed what your dream job is?
  • Is your plan aligned with your personal values?

Have you stopped to think about these questions properly recently (or ever)?

If not, you could be putting yourself at risk of stress, anxiety, depression or burn out and at best, not achieving your full potential.

We can offer you NLP coaching to help you find the answer these and other important questions.  Once you’re clear about where you’re heading, how your destination aligns with your personal values and how exactly you’re going to get there, then you’ll be amazed at how easy it becomes to secure the position that is exactly right for you.

Interview preparation

We can help you prepare for you job interview by skype coaching.

You can learn how to gain instant rapport with your interviewers and put them at ease and make sure that you are presenting yourself in the right way.

The key to interview success is being confident about your strengths and articulating them well. That doesn’t mean putting on an act. It means being genuinely confident and having all the your strengths on the tip of your tongue. And in order to have them at the tip of your tongue you need to first of all find them and believe in yourself.

We’ll also help you use the interview as an opportunity to find out whether the job is right for you, not whether you are right for the job. In order to do this, you have to be clear about what makes you tick and what your long term goals are.  If you’re not clear yourself about these things then that will come across in the interview and could instil doubts in the interviewers themselves.
