The biggest mistake people make when they search for a job is that they work alone. As part of our community you will get more support whether it’s to prepare for an interview or find new business contacts.
We know you’re a busy bee. We decided to share all the content of the programme online, so you can access it whenever you want, wherever you want. You will get a handout for each lesson with challenges and exercises.
The workshops are designed to allow you to exchange with others while learning more about yourself. Each of them will be hosted by a different career angel who will share their insights and help you reach your goals.
I started my career in Finance 6 years ago in London. This was for me the logical move after graduating from a top business school in the US. I have been working in the corporate world since then. I had the feeling I was not at my place (this is why I changed 3 times of companies), but I couldn’t really understand why?
Last year I started a self-inventory to understand what was wrong with me! I realised that I wanted more from my job than only a 9 to 5 to pay the bills.
Through that process I made 3 important discoveries:
– No-one teaches you how to define and get a fulfilling job
– I wasn’t the only one who wanted to quit his job to find a job they love
– I love helping others and create communities
I interviewed dozens of coaches, entrepreneurs and people who love their job to understand how I could help others to also find a fulfilling job. It took me month to learn techniques, concepts I applied to myself. Today I want to share those with you.

Nathalina is a qualified Career Coach with a background in Investment banking technology; having spent 15 years previously with J.P. Morgan as a Programme and Project Manager. In 2007 she started her career transition to Career Coaching, after realising people development rather than systems development were where her passions truly lie. Nathalina now works privately with individuals who work for companies such as HSBC, Citibank, Barclays Investment Bank, J.P. Morgan, BNP Paribas, EY, KPMG, Deloitte, and Clifford Chance.
What struck me in this community is the desire from everyone to contribute and learn. Working in group offers a different dynamic than 1to1 coaching. People were very engaged and supportive in a truly sharing atmosphere . This kind of stimulation is harder to achieve if you do not work in workshop format.

Now, her mission is to empower more professionals to transition into a fulfilling career. She strongly believes the world would be a happier & healthier place if more people had fulfilling & passionate careers.
During our session we looked at ways to maximise opportunities. We worked on LinkedIn profiles, personal branding. People had very practical questions so I did share some of my personal experience as well as some of the techniques my clients have used for themselves.

In this program I help people to delve deeper into what is important to them and gain a new insight into the drivers in their life, and use this to make actively make choices about their career going forward.
You will have access to the online part of the course that would cover most parts of the workshops. However, if you want to deepen your understanding or get extra coaching (we can’t blame you for that), our career angels would happily organise a call with you. There is a cost to it £80 per call.
The course will be accessible on udemy.com I have created a private course and will share the password upon registration
You won’t stay on your own. We will organise monthly catch ups where you could get some practical ways to keep on track and stay motivated.
I will invite coach and entrepreneurs to join me. You will not meet recruiters as such, but the idea of this tribe is to share contact with each other including recruiters’ contacts.
We want to ensure you get the best out of this programme. We will therefore select people on how far they are with their search and how helpful this program can be for them. “You get out what you put in” is one of our motto, the success of our programmes is the result of everyone’s participation and desire to help their peers to move forward.
Well, there isn’t. You’re investing in your future, and if you feel the return on investment is not there, we believe it’s fair to give your money back. (so far we’ve never had to use it).
Our growth strategy is to build our community from our existing members, we prefer to spend our energy and budget at building great value that our members would happily recommend to friends rather than spending thousands of pounds in expensive PR.
