If you are feeling unfulfilled by what your work life or business is delivering for you, you are not alone. As leaders it has never been more complicated to get hired, thrive at work or scale your own business. But the good news is that you are in exactly the right place because at Executive Career Jump we are on a mission to end career-based misery.
Executive Career Jump was originally a side hustle. A passion project, a chance to pay it forward and the opportunity to help leaders in transition understand what they wanted from their careers and how to get it. Career Coaching was something I did in the evenings alongside being MD of an International Executive Recruitment company. I never saw it as a full-time gig and was firmly wedded to the perks of a senior corporate role despite often feeling stressed and empty.
But something was stirring in me. I was getting obsessed with the art of executive job searching, the power of personal branding and with trying to understand why so many of us were unhappy in our work. It became clear to me that the relationship we had with our jobs was broken and was affecting all areas of our lives. So in 2018 we created and launched our first digital course for jobseekers and the results were astonishing. With clear input people were able to understand themselves, brand themselves and sell themselves far more effectively and word started to spread about the impact of our work.
Then the unthinkable happened….in early 2019 my wife (and now business partner) and I were made redundant from our roles and found ourselves with a mortgage and two young children trying to work out what we should do next.
After many long nights, consultancy assignments and red wine talks, we decided to try and make Executive Career Jump work together on a full-time basis with humble expectations of enough income to cover our living expenses and an improved work/life blend – but then the pandemic hit, and the world of work changed forever.
We found ourselves at the centre of the storm trying to help people at scale whether they were on furlough, on the job market and or setting up on their own for the first time and in the process quickly became the most high-profile brand and career coaches in the space. New products were born, media appearances were made, and businesses started asking us for help on everything from outplacement to growth training to social selling.
Today Executive Career Jump is a movement. It’s a statement of intent that we will all get more from our careers and businesses, and we will no longer just accept job misery in exchange for job security.

Hi, I’m Sarah. I am a huge advocate for putting the “human” back into human resources and treating candidates with respect during the hiring process, so I am super excited to be supporting Andrew in his mission to end job search misery. A qualified career counsellor, I will be supporting with coaching provision, but I will also be focusing on the ECJ community to optimise the member experience.
Hi I'm Zoe and I facilitate the finance and assist with operational side of ECJ and am always on hand for all our Executive Career Jumpers queries!

Customer experience is a key priority for me and I like to give great service, one I would be proud to receive. When I'm not working, you will find me having adventures with my young children, and I have recently started the journey of learning to run, which has proved to be a real mind shift change for me.
