Goodson Thomas: Navigating Career Transitions Seamlessly

Navigating a career transition can be a daunting journey. Whether you’re seeking a new challenge, aiming to move up the professional ladder, or contemplating a complete career change, the process can often be uncertain. We have worked with individuals recently who have managed to transition, turning potential hurdles into opportunities for growth and success.

A common challenge many professionals face is self-doubt or uncertainty about where they best fit in the job market. It’s easy to overlook roles where you might excel, simply because you don't see yourself as the ideal candidate. As Craig Hampton-Stone, Managing Director of Cardiff Bus, shared, "I soon realised that the best approach was to transfer a share of the ownership for matching me with the right job to those that know best. While I may have looked at some roles and thought either I was not the best match, Goodson Thomas were clear from the outset on where I had potential for success in achieving a role that was right for me."

Our team of executive search experts use our experience to match candidates with roles that align with your skills and career aspirations.

We will guide you every step of the way. Darren Joyce, CEO, The Friendly Trust, highlights this point: "Goodson Thomas liaised with the Trustees and gave me the encouragement I needed to apply. A quick zip forward by 12 months and I am so grateful for the advice and support that I received from the Goodson Thomas team in successfully navigating my way through a career change."

We ensure that you are not only matched with roles that fit your professional profile but also receive the moral and strategic support necessary to excel in your new position.

Partnering with us transforms the often stressful and uncertain process of career transitioning into a structured and supportive journey. We identify the right opportunities, ensuring that you are well-prepared and confident in taking the next step in your career.

Liz Downie, Chief Executive Officer, Thrive Women’s Aid said: “As a HR professional with over 20 years’ experience, of which the last seven had been within Director and Board member positions I felt that I was at the right time in my career to take the next step to the position of CEO. The Goodson Thomas team was exceptionally supportive with this transition and was there every step of the way to give encouragement, advice and guidance. I would highly recommend the Goodson Thomas team to assist any candidate wanting to take the next step into a more senior position or moving sector. “
