WHAT IS CAREER COACHING?
HAVE YOU HEARD OF CAREER COACHING BEFORE?
If you wanted to get better at football, you may employ a football coach; if you want to get fitter you may employ a fitness coach, but what if you wanted to further your career? Who would you turn to? Well, this is exactly what we do.
Have you ever applied for jobs and not had an interview or even had a reply?
Are you passionate about football but are unsure which career suits you?
Do you feel stuck, confused or frustrated with your current career?
Have you just graduated from university and want support getting started?
We can help, we are a Career Coaching organisation working to develop people and help them access their ambitions within the football industry.
We are specialists in developing people and creating opportunities. We focus in on what you want from your future career in football. We have developed a model to show you how we work and how it can help you develop.
We have developed our own career development philosophy from the years of research and investigating how people succeed in their chosen careers.
All of our career services use our unique career development theory 'Career Tactics'. This has been designed to develop and progress people across five key areas:
Career development and progression is more than just a nice looking CV and gaining a qualification. There are many areas that you can develop and control to help you progress and access the career of your dreams. As you can see from the model above there are five key areas that we will help you develop and therefore help you access and succeed within your chosen career.
We think it is vital that you are working in all the areas within your career to help you to progress and achieve your ambitions.
We see too many people focusing on their CV, applying for vacancies with 100s of other people and crossing their fingers and hoping they will get the job. There is a better way! By developing Career Tactics that work for you we can push you and help you achieve your ambitions and beyond.
When we work with people we take a personalised approach. We assess their current practices and ensure they are developing the essential skills to see them progress.
WHY CAREER COACHING IS IMPORTANT?
Careers are important! What we chose to do for a living will define us and ultimately decide what car we drive, what house we live in and our lifestyle in general. Yet we spend very little time developing our career skills and considering how we can access the career we want.
You will work for around 50% of your life and it is important to spend time considering what you want. We have specific tasks and strategies to get this information from you and help you make informed decisions.
We have three main aims when working with people:
We support people to select the career in the football industry that suits them best. We work to broaden peoples awareness of what is out there, assess this to their aspirations to make the best informed decisions. We even help people create opportunities and careers that aren't out there.
Once you have an idea of what career direction you want to go into, we will work with you to start finding and creating opportunities. This will include working with you to design 'tactics' to get you into the right place at the right times.
Once you've accessed your dream role in the football industry our work is not finished. Our aim is to help you get to the top of the industry and make a difference. This includes us working on progression strategies and tactics to help you be the best you can be in your career.
Toby says, "I started our work in careers due to my own frustrations. I considered myself a 'frustrated' football coach. I felt stuck and lost in terms of how to progress and gain access to the career I wanted in the football industry. This kick started an obsession to discover how careers worked and what people could do to take control of their career.
For years I researched careers (completing a qualification in career development and guidance) and interviewing professionals working in the industry. The things I learnt changed the way I looked at career development and the different techniques you can use to progress. I left my teaching job and started Careersinfootball.com to support more people who are in the same position as I was. Our philosophy was developed through looking at career development theories and also developing our own."
Careersinfootball.com have gone on to work with people who have achieved great things and will go even further than they ever imagined.
It was an educated decision to not go into recruitment, nothing against recruitment agencies but we wanted to focus on the individuals rather than the organisations. We wanted to spend time with people to help them make informed decisions and go beyond just finding a job!
All of our services are personalised to each individuals situation and ambitions.
