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.

I’m just completed the very slightly depressing read of the Institute for the Future of Work’s report on the spread of ‘Amazonian’ work practices – The Amazonian Era: How algorithmic systems are eroding good work. Their survey found that 55% of workers felt less valued by their employers after recent changes to work practices, while 49% felt less fulfilled. The report calls for a ‘human-centered approach to technology and a renewed focus on making work better’
Have you ever felt discriminated against because of the way you speak? Have you ever been told you needed to soften, or even lose, your accent, in order to get ahead in the workplace? Is ‘accent discrimination’ an actual thing? Well, the French government have decided it is, and have legislated accordingly. Should the UK follow suit, and add accent to the existing list of protected characteristics , or would that be a discrimination law too far?
Have you ever found yourself judging your internal experience by looking at others’ external demeanour? Or to put it another way, judging your behind the scenes preparations against someone else’s ‘highlights reel’? From a career development perspective, this is a mindset well worth avoiding.
