Meet your Career Coach

Hello, I’m Eleanor, the principal consultant at Living Career and I’d very much like to assist you in your career whether that is through choosing a job that relates to your strengths, making insightful career decisions, or achieving your next ideal job.

Let me tell you a little more about me:
I established Living Career in 2007 and have supported hundreds of individuals in one-to-one consultations and workshops. A decade later I am still filled with enthusiasm for the work I do.

Prior to founding Living Career I worked with students and graduates at the University of South Australia, The University of Warwick (UK) and the University of Sydney. I have also worked with school-aged decision makers, and managers and employees who were made redundant including the closing of the Mitsubishi factory as a consultant for Donnington.

I became a fully qualified Career Consultant in 2000 with a Postgraduate Diploma in Career Development, Masters in Career Development and Bachelors in Psychology and Behaviour in Organisations. I also hold the Certificate IV in Training and Development.

I keep my skills current through my membership of the Career Development Association of Australia, as well as continuous learning and networking with employers. I completed the SA Young Entrepreneurs Scheme.   

I have been a committee member of the National Association of Graduate Career Advisory Services (NAGCAS). I am an experienced speaker and facilitator; I have presented at conferences including NAGCAS, AGCAS, Australian International Education Conference.
