Victoria made the change from a big 4 management consultant to CR Program Manager at a leading sustainable company.

The Challenge

How to start focusing my search in a sector that ranges from eco-tourism to green infrastructure?

I knew that I wanted to channel my energy and skills from almost 10 years of management consulting into an area I genuinely cared about. “Sustainability” seemed like the perfect option, but the problem was how to start focusing my search in a sector that ranges from eco-tourism to green infrastructure?

I had worked in the food and waste area for the Olympics as a secondee from Deloitte and wanted to explore how this could translate into a role in the impact sector.

The Solution

Shannon offered insight into the sustainability job market and tailored my CV with compelling achievement statements.

The first step Shannon guided me through was to demystify the sustainability landscape by breaking it down into manageable chunks such as sector, function, issues.  She then helped me to reflect and do some in-depth thinking about what I actually wanted out of a career and put together skills sets, work culture and interests. She offered insight into the sustainability job market and tailored my CV with compelling achievement statements translating my past experience for my new audience.

The Result

I was able to do a more focused search, gain better knowledge of the sector and design a clear personal story.

With Shannon’s help I was able to do a more focused search, gain better knowledge of the sector and design a clear personal story that in turn allowed me to launch my career in sustainability at the Sustainable Restaurant Association. She has since coached me into my current dream role as CR Manager at Costa Coffee.
