Whilst I managed Paul, I was always amazed at the level of empathy and passion he devoted to individual students who were seeking support in planning their careers. He is a truly warm person with a huge depth of knowledge who, most importantly, can help the most under-confident person to overcome the barriers they face to get the job they really want.
As my university careers advisor Paul helped me choose a path that suited my skills, personality and values. His thoughtful, empathic, person-centred approach is underpinned by his love of helping people reach their potential. I am very grateful for the guidance he gave me early on in what is a very enjoyable career.
Paul is one of the most competent, professional and friendly Careers Advisers I know. He has excellent guidance and counselling skills plus the ability to manage projects directly.
I found Paul in 2020 when I was considering my career options. He proved to be a great sounding board and source of ideas. He is highly experienced and offered me constructive and relevant advice which helped to quickly get me into a new position. I would recommend Paul to anyone who is in the job market.

From my experience of chairing interview panels, debriefing candidates post-interview, talking to recruiters about what great candidates do, and of course being interviewed plenty of times myself, here’s an observation.

Usain Bolt is famous the world over for his extraordinary athletic exploits. As the overwhelming favourite, he successfully defended his 100m title at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, running a mind- boggling 9.81 seconds. In the same race, US athlete Trayvon Bromell finished the race in 10.6 seconds-less than a second behind Bolt. As an illustration of how tight margins between winning and losing can be this takes some beating. It becomes even more incredible when you take in the fact that Bromell finished 8 th (and last) with six other athletes finishing between Bolt and Bromell!
Howard Gardner, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and William Damon, are three Harvard University psychologists who worked together to found The Good Project set up with the aim of nurturing excellence, engagement, and ethics in education, preparing people to become good workers and good citizens who contribute to the overall well-being of society.
One of the strands of their work is the idea of ‘good work’. Their thinking is that ‘good work’ is good for society, defining good work as satisfying work that gives us as individuals the chance to work for a purpose beyond ourselves, an opportunity to use and develop our talents and capabilities, and to work collaboratively with people who both challenge and support us.
