Penny Langstaff, Interview Coach, Apply and Succeed Ltd

The values that are important to me






Hi, I'm Penny 

I’ve set up Apply and Succeed to provide you with advice and support on any part of the job application process. There are 3 coaching options, but any of the content can be combined or mixed - basically, whatever you need support with is what we'll focus on. For most people, 1 hour’s coaching enables them to implement changes or polish up their skills to achieve positive results. My advice and guidance is always professional but in a relaxed and informal setting, so think of it more like a conversation and discussion than formal tuition!

You can read more about me here or if you’d like to find out how I could help, please do give me a call.  You're under no obligation to proceed and it might just help you find out whether coaching's going to be right for you.

How & Why Coaching Works

  • You receive dedicated one-on-one advice that's all about you and your applications. Online information is broad and could apply to anyone.

  • I look at every aspect of your application and then focus on what needs changing. We work together to turn negative outcomes into positive ones.

  • You get support and advice that will increase your confidence.  Many people have all the knowledge and skills to succeed, but lack self-belief.

  • I provide on-going phone/email support for 7 days following coaching to ensure you have continued help and advice

"Hi Penny.  Thanks so much for your help last week, it made a big difference for my confidence and I really think it helped me in nailing the interview!"

"Penny took me through an in-depth review of my skills and experience, the transferability over to a new role and provided clarity for me on what type of roles I should be applying for.  Going a step further Penny then linked through to how everything should be reflected in my C.V and LinkedIn profile.  I gained valuable insights and information I will be implementing.  A fantastic communicator and very authentic in her approach"
