Meet your Career Consultant…
Hey there, I’m Torie Robinson and I work with professionals to enable them to unleash their full potential, achieve their goals and fulfil their ambitions.
I will help you to make a career change / to get promoted and just make the most out of your career. Maybe you are bored. Hate your boss. Fed up of the company/industry. Being made redundant.
Let’s identify what your goals are and enable to you get there.
I specialise in the Finance sector and work with clients on all levels of an organisation – from MDs, Partners, and Lawyers, to PAs and IT consultants. If you’re ready to make a change, I’m ready to work with you.
Why I do Career Consulting
People often ask me why I do what I do, and the simple answer is to make a positive difference to people’s lives. Through my services, I am able to help people unleash their full potential and give them the confidence they need to take the steps they need to enhance their career, reach their goals, and maintain a healthy work-life balance.
So many of us will reach a point in our careers where we become lost and uncertain – but we know we need a change. We want to take that next step, but are unsure of the direction. Should we pursue our existing career path or try something completely new? If you don’t know where you want to go, how can you possibly know how you’re going to get “there”?
Helping my clients to define what they really want from their careers, clearly define their goals and then helping them to achieve these is what drives me. I am passionate about what I do and for me, it’s so much more than a job – I genuinely care about my clients’ success and seeing them achieve this is what gives me career fulfillment.
How I became a Career Consultant
I haven’t always been a Career Consultant. I’ve gained over 7 years’ experience in Finance, Banking, Management, HR and Recruitment, whilst sometimes working in roles that I didn’t enjoy, that were not fulfilling and which put me under immense and intolerable pressure.
I’d been promoted and seconded overseas – I thought that this was going to be my career dream, but for many reasons, it left me unhappy and unchallenged. This wasn’t where I wanted to be – but where did I want to be? I felt lost.
Taking some time off, I used my skills and experience to help some of my friends to get high flying jobs in London; providing recruitment advice, overhauling their CVs and LinkedIn profiles, and preparing them for interviews. And it worked. I realised that this was the next step I had been looking for– to help other professionals find and secure the jobs that they wanted-rather than the jobs they felt they needed.
So here I am – using my knowledge, experience and insight to help others avoid the career-based misery that I endured. And I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else!
