My Story

Hi, I’m Eleanor.

Social People Coaching and Consultancy could be described as my third baby, and one which has been born out of a need for flexibility which wasn’t present after my second child was born.  I work flexibly around my two little people and now couldn’t imagine working any other way.

Having always been a career girl, I didn’t ever anticipate working anything other than full time.  However, when life changes for the better it is often time to reassess and at this time I saw many things through a different lens.  That career girl and mum of two now makes for a very powerful combination.

 I have experience of working flexibly in a senior corporate role following my first maternity leave and after working freelance as a social media manager for two years following my second maternity leave, I am now back to what I love the most – combining my skills and experience to support people with their career and business success.

My background is HR, I am (and always have been) fascinated by people. I also understand business and how to get the best out of people.  Another powerful combination which has helped me to enjoy a senior HR career in financial services leading diverse teams and contributing to business success.  Over the years I have supported countless people to achieve their career goals and aspirations and have delivered tangible business results.

Combining my unique blend of extensive HR experience with my coaching expertise, supported with my strategic social media insights, I support you to reflect on what is important for you from your career and or business.  Together we will explore how this is best achieved.

My own flexible working journey now enables me to coach, mentor and ultimately empower individuals on their own career journey, be it on an employed basis or by carving flexibility through self-employment.

I hold the following qualifications and accreditations:

  • Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resources Management
  • Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)
  • Barefoot Coaching trained Personal and Business Coach
  • Member of the International Coaching Federation and I follow the ICF Code of Ethics
