How long does it take?

Each career coaching session lasts one hour, which includes time for your questions and any relevant follow up discussion or activities. For straightforward questions, we can help resolve your issues in a single session. For more complex questions, it may take several sessions to develop a career plan that you can then implement.

How much does it cost?

Each one hour session costs £95. There are no hidden costs – the price agreed at the start is the price paid. If for any reason you’re not happy, we’re happy to consider a refund.

We also offer a discounted rate of £75 for Conservation Careers Academy (CCA) members. If you’re not already a member, learn more about the benefits of joining the Conservation Careers Academy. You can get started for as little as £6 per month.

Our success stories

“After finishing my master’s degree in August 2020, I spent the majority of the following two months non-stop applying to jobs. I found myself getting nowhere (only receiving rejections or nothing at all) for every application I sent out and was also feeling overwhelmed by the number of applications I had set for myself to do in a given week. Having made no progress, I reached out to Conservation Careers and asked for a one-to-one session. Kristi responded very quickly and we set up a one hour session for a few days later. The one-to-one sessions do come with a cost but in my opinion this is well worth the insight and feedback. 

Kristi was very accommodating, making sure that I was leading the session, asking any questions or expressing any issues I was facing before providing insight and advice so that the session was tailored to me. Kristi’s feedback on my CV was extremely valuable and I was directed to resources available on the Conservation Careers website which I was unaware of. I took all the feedback on board and started to be more selective about which jobs I was applying to. The session also boosted my confidence as Kristi assured me that it wasn’t that I wasn’t good enough, it was just that I was either applying to jobs that I didn’t necessarily want to do or that the formatting of my CV needed some work. The results of this session were seen quickly with my applications getting more traction and I received interview invites within a month of the one-to-one. I was successful in the recruitment processes for one job in particular and was offered the job late last year. I am now employed in my first ever proper conservation job and couldn’t be happier. Thank you to Kristi and Conservation Careers for all your help!” – Julia Daly, January 2021
