Ian Hannah

CEO at Hanacker Limited 

I have known James for nearly twenty years. More recently, I engaged with him to guide me on selecting my next move from a range of entrepreneurial and more traditional corporate roles. 

James and LifeWork provide a very pro-active and engaging approach. They do not merely assess and advise; they provide a clear roadmap and are highly responsive right up to completion The whole process took less than three months. 

I would strongly recommend James and LifeWork to anyone who is at a junction in their career.

Jonathan Davies

Managing Director Advertiser Partnerships, Eurosport and Discovery Channels at Discovery Networks International

I worked with James when I was at something of a career crossroads. He has a no nonsense, forthright style and uses probing but insightful questioning to get right to the heart of the core issues. James has a wealth of experience across all aspects of the search and hiring process which he readily brings to bear. He is punctual, highly efficient and very generous with his time and level of contact. 

I can't recommend his services highly enough.

Berhanu Kassayie

Consultant North Middlesex University Hospital

NHS Trust

Jacky is remarkable. She coached me at a difficult time helping me to discern for myself what I am capable of and how I can best utilise and communicate them in moving to the next phase in my career. Here knowledge, listening skills and the tips and ideas she comes up with were invaluable.

Ann Rappaport

Senior Business Analyst - Aatra Limited

Jacky has recently provided career coaching sessions for my 2 sons aged 14 and 12. After the sessions, both sons spontaneously said how well planned the sessions were and that she "obviously knew what she was doing". The oldest son had a real spark in his eye as he described a possible career path that they had explored and he seemed really encouraged about the GCSE choices he has made. Both boys said they would really like to have Jacky as their career coach at school, as they had found it very easy to talk to her and a very positive experience to be coached by her. 

As an adult, I have also spoken more informally to Jacky about my career choices. The overwhelming feeling is of speaking to someone who has a lot of knowledge, great warmth and enthusiasm for getting the best for you as an individual. I would recommend Jacky highly.

Patricia Diaz

Writer and Mindfulness Consultant

I have requested Jacky Moran from Life Work to give career advice to a friend of mine who has been wishing to define a clearer path regarding her working life in UK. Jacky took great care in listening to her experiences of life and work and helped her with appropriate information to map her options for re-training and improving her chances of employability in the fields of her interest. In addition to her skills ​as a career advisor, Jacky also has the ability to communicate with her client in Spanish which in this case helped my friend to feel more confident and relaxed during the interview. I would definitely recommend Jacky’s service to people in similar situation to my friend.

Isabella Woolford 

Career changer/ student 

Jacky provided me with amazing coaching at a pivotal point in my career. She gave me clear and actionable advice regarding working in the third sector, as well as on how on to develop my freelance work through training and qualifications. Thanks to her advice I have been able to develop new income streams and establish myself as a freelancer.

Jacky has expertise in abundance and most importantly knows how to deliver this in a practical and motivating way. I wholeheartedly recommend Jacky's services.

Sanja Dujmovic Potnar

Consultant- Facilitator International Climate and Sustainable Development Agenda


I have known Jacky Moran for 20 years, as an ex-colleague, a friend and most recently as my career coach and mentor.

My job situation became unstable and following months of furlough, I found myself looking for work again.

Jacky’s approach from the start was very systematic, with a lot of focus. She came to each meeting with a planned agenda on what should be the key priorities.

Jacky helped me identify transferrable skills and she encouraged me to showcase them when exploring the world of self-employment. Further, she provided invaluable resource material on changing career, along with building a strong personal brand.

As a result of her guidance and encouragement, I have recently been offered a temporary contract as a consultant in the field of environmental and climate change sustainability, which will be an excellent springboard to permanent work.

Jacky also recently provided career counselling to my teenage daughter in her transition to post-16 education, which has helped her immensely.

I thoroughly recommend Jacky as a career consultant with great interpersonal skills who brings a very broad and deep range of expertise to the table in any engagement.

North London November 15th 2021 Sanja and her 15-year-old daughter were Jacky's client
