My Background As A Career Advisor and Coach

Hi, I’m Lyndal and I am delighted to introduce you to My Coach. As a career advisor, I am firmly committed to guiding you through the recruitment process so you possess the confidence and resources which will allow you to achieve the job of your choice.

I've worked for small local businesses and global companies such as Virgin and Mediterranean Shipping Company. I’ve been a Recruiter, a Travel Agent, a Trainer, an HR Advisor, and an Employment Coach. And I am quite adept at turning my hand to milking cows and driving tractors when the need arises!

I don't believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach and always consider what is right for you. My philosophy in life is to ‘be the best person you can be’ at all times and to live to your own set of values and beliefs.  I will work with you to highlight the ‘best you can possibly be’.

Having represented Canterbury in ‘Miss New Zealand’ early in my career, I understand the importance of possessing the ‘complete package’.  Skills and knowledge alone must be combined with confidence, professionalism, and above all - the right attitude.

As illogical as some of my career and life choices may have seemed, it is this exact combination of experience and skills that enables me to give job seekers and people wanting to change their careers the 1:1 attention they need and deserve.

Quality time with family is important and in my spare time I enjoy running. I've competed in 5 half marathons and 5 relays over the last 10 years in the Buller Gorge Marathon.

As a respected Career, Advisor, Employment Coach and an accredited Life Coach with over 20 years’ experience in HR and Recruitment, I have the experience, skills and passion to help you. I am a regular contributor to JetMag online and Leaving School magazine, and the highly successful Motivate Me New Zealand online Community.  I understand how HR and Recruitment Companies operate, what they want and what turns them off.

Now is the time to manage your career with my expert help. You will gain the attention of those making hiring decisions and acquire practical skills you can draw upon throughout your working life. I look forward to working with you. Let's book a time for us to meet!
