Assisting International Development & Humanitarian Aid Professionals in Career Transition through Coaching
Having worked in various international contexts, I can relate to the challenges people face in the field. My mission is to assist mid-career professionals who wish to transition into this challenging yet rewarding international development and humanitarian sector. My journey taught me that there’s no single and linear way to move into humanitarian and international development work. Each of us has our own path to discover.
One also needs to be aware that a need to leave the field at some point can emerge. The next destination may not offer career opportunities in international development and humanitarian areas. The transition from field life to home involves many complexities (reverse culture shock, unemployment, etc.), of which some may be totally unexpected.
For people whose careers have spanned many years and different countries, finding ‘home’ and transitioning into retirement life may also present unique challenges.
I work with the international development / humanitarian professionals in career transition, including:
- Mid-career professionals who wish to transition into international development / humanitarian careers.
- International development / humanitarian professionals who are transitioning into new roles.
- International development / humanitarian professionals considering leaving the field and looking for new career paths (finding a job in the home country, starting a small business, etc.)
- Spouses & partners of international development/humanitarian professionals who are looking for flexible careers.
- International development / humanitarian professionals transitioning into retirement.
I also work with other expatriates and immigrants who go through cross-cultural career transitions.
I look forward to assisting you in finding ikigai and creating a new resilient career.
