After graduating, (NC History 1997) I took an MA at the Courtauld Institute before getting my first job at Christie's Auction House. I had always fancied doing a PhD, but couldn't afford it at the time and didn't think I had enough 'life' experience. So I worked in an Executive Search (headhunting) company in London for 5 years before leaving to do PhD. That resulted in becoming a Lecturer and Research Fellow at King's College London, writing a book and becoming an expert on ageing, identity and the lifecycle. Although I have never left that expertise behind, I have combined academic work with other work rather than being a pure academic. I ran the Education & Public Sector practice of an Executive Search firm, and I have spent the last 3 years in an offshoot of Cabinet Office that connects Whitehall with
the world of business. I am now setting up my own business that offers coaching to those going through life and career changes, I am helping roll-out a program to offer coaching in prisons, and I am also about to become the Commercial Director of a startup in the AI /
psychology space. I feel like I've done a lot of different things in my career to date (I'm not even 40 years old yet!), but that there have also been lots of common themes along the way.
