About Us

Helping you get to a better place

 

We are a team of executive career consultants who work to help people get to a better place in their careers.

History

Appleby Associates has been established in the market place since 2003 and comprises a team of talented executive career consultants with a wealth of experience having worked with more than 3,000 clients.

Professional

We work hard, and in a way that fits in around our clients’ busy lives, giving them the support they need wherever and whenever they need it. Whether that means before the start of the working day, out of office hours at 8.00pm or their home at the weekend.

Style

The result is a unique approach to career management in which the career consultant really has sufficient time and flexibility to provide a personal solution to each individual client’s specific needs and circumstances.

“Working with Dawn to plan my future career has been both enlightening and challenging. Dawn has helped me to realise what it is that I really want from my professional life and those aspects that I’m good at and enjoy and those that really don’t offer me anything in terms of satisfaction. Working with Dawn has given me the confidence to accept that what I really know deep down is the right path for me to follow.”

FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

WHO'S A TYPICAL APPLEBY CLIENT?

Our core clients are senior managers, directors, executives and professionals. Generally they are aged 35 and above and are looking to leverage their knowledge, skill and expertise into another role, sector or career.

The common denominator is that they take their careers seriously and recognise that to make the next move they could benefit from expert advice and support to help them navigate that journey.  All are looking to make a change and know they need support to make it happen.

WILL APPLEBY GET ME A JOB?

When it comes to securing a position, ultimately, we are not the decision maker or the hiring manager, so we can’t get a job for you.

Our role is to provide you with the structure and framework needed, fulfilling a catalyst/ facilitator role and we believe that no other company provides better outcomes, through a flexible and personalised approach.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ESTABLISHED?

The company was established in 2003 and have associates covering the UK and offering support internationally to clients overseas.

HOW MANY CLIENTS HAVE YOU WORKED WITH?

We have worked with well over 3,000 clients across all industry sectors.

CAN I SPEAK TO THEM?

Absolutely. One of our greatest sources of pride is the number of clients who are not just willing but keen to be ambassadors for our services.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AS A CLIENT?

You can expect committed, objective, non-judgemental support and guidance from a highly skilled professional in some of the most important career decisions you will make. You can expect to be challenged, pushed and guided. You can expect total support from a trusted advisor, who is accountable to you.

IF I AM BASED OVERSEAS, HOW DOES IT WORK?

In principle, exactly the same way as if you are based in the UK having face to face meetings with your consultant. The meetings are still on a one to one basis, they will just be remote.

WHAT IS THE BACKGROUND OF THE ASSOCIATES?

Each associate brings different qualities, skills and qualifications. All have been successful in their respective professions before deciding that they wanted to help other professionals in the development of their career. The common factor is that they are each dedicated to providing best in class support.

HOW MANY ACHIEVED THEIR CAREER GOALS?

Almost all our clients achieve successful outcomes. Many of them are in the job they always wanted, others are earning salaries they didn’t think they could. All are on a career path that has made a big change to their lives.

HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE?

Give us a call on 0800 009 6899. We’ll be happy to answer any questions, and if you’re interested, we can arrange an initial meeting.

The introductory meeting is free of charge and without obligation, lasts 1-1½ hours, and looks to help you get a fuller picture of what do, and whether you feel it’s right for you. The person you meet will be the person you’d work with, and they will take you through the programme, the deliverables and our approach. By the end of that meeting, you should have a pretty good feel for whether you want to take things further.
