When you are looking for a cost-effective way to make a career choice.

You feel stuck. How are you meant to decide what career will make you happy? You’ve looked at job sites but aren’t sure how you match up, maybe you have some ideas but aren’t sure how they could work?

I’ve helped people make a career choice for over 25 years. Helping people get clear on their natural abilities makes it easy to shortlist jobs to explore further. You can’t rely on self-report tests; you need to go deeper.

I use the renowned Highlands Ability Battery, to confirm natural talents and ability and provide you with a shortlist of jobs to explore that match and thus help you make a career choice.

Step 1: Your Career Story (30 minutes)

It’s rare to have a conversation with someone who will truly listen and reflect back on your life. This session includes completion of a personal information form and a review of 3 exercises: Character Strengths, Personal Values and Saboteurs which you complete and return at least one full working day before our session (For a Monday session this should be returned by Thursday evening).

Career assessments

Step 2: Assessment Stage

The Highlands Ability Battery

The ‘Gold Standard’ to objectively identify natural abilities and talents. This is not ‘self-report’ but you completing objective work samples so we can clearly understand your abilities. The assessment takes you 3 hours and can be done in a number of sessions from your home computer. You must complete at least one full working day before our 2 hour feedback session (For a Monday session this should be completed by Thursday evening).

The Strong Interest Inventory

 The Strong Interest Inventory is based on the idea that individuals with similar interests are often attracted to the same kind of work and are likely to be successful in a work environment that reflects those interests. You receive your report alongside comprehensive guidance notes.

Session 2: The Ability Battery Feedback Session (2 hours)

You receive several PDF full colour reports

  • Main Highlands Report – 21 pages
