Read how 'Ace Your Interview' helped this lawyer land a great new opportunity after two unsuccessful interviews

‘S’ had been unsuccessful at two different interviews and couldn’t work out how to change their approach to show their potential and land a new role.

'S' realised they had to change how they were showing up at interview so they enrolled in  'Ace Your Interview' 

After completing the online modules and talking through their approach in our 2-hour coaching session, they learned a totally new way of preparing to impress at interview.

 Here's what happened next.... 

 One week later, 'S' sent me another email....

A little bit about me...

My mission is to ensure that talented and ambitious lawyers have the coaching and mentoring that I never had when I was a lawyer. I want to see all my clients get the fulfilment they deserve from their career and enjoy all the knock-on benefits in their personal lives of being in a role that aligns with what's most important to them.

I develop a bespoke coaching programme for each lawyer to reflect their goals and objectives because a one-size-fits-all approach is simply not the way I work, nor will it work for you. Whether you're:

  • feeling at a crossroads in your career, uncertain which next step to take, or even what you actually want from life
  • wanting to make an impact in your current or new role so that you get that promotion you deserve
  • looking for a new role, but it's been years since you updated your CV and besides you don't want to go out of the frying pan into the fire

I can help you clarify your thinking about your long-term career aspirations so that whatever you decide to do today is advancing your career in the right direction.

Clients tell me that it really makes a difference to them knowing that they're talking to someone who gets the high-performance, high-blame culture in so many businesses these day and everything I have learned during my 25 years in the legal profession as a lawyer myself, then Head of Recruitment and Careers Coach at two Magic Circle firms and 15 years of coaching lawyers at all stages on their career really adds value to our coaching relationship.

I look forward to supporting you too on your professional journey.


"After being invited to a first stage interview with a US firm, I was very fortunate to have found Paula on LinkedIn to help me prepare.

The preparation tasks she sent over before the coaching session were very useful as all the questions helped me to start thinking about ME and MY skills and what I can bring to the table. I started drawing out my experiences in a subtle manner.

The coaching session was the most valuable experience I have had.

During the coaching session, Paula helped me streamline my responses to potential interview questions. I was actually focusing on answering the questions instead of waffling!

As I don’t have a conventional background and with law being a second career, Paula was brilliant in helping me identify how my previous career consists of strengths which interviewing partners would see as an asset.

I was told by so many that moving from in-house to private practice was impossible as I did not have the right skill set, Paula helped me explain how having trained and qualified in-house would be useful in transitioning into private practice.

Paula shifted my focus and instilled confidence in me and as a result of her advice and guidance I secured a role in an international law firm!

Thank you Paula for your guidance - I will definitely be coming back to you in 12 months when I am looking to make my next move."
