The Job Coach

Get the Job YOU Want!

Changing beliefs, empowering success!

In 2014, I left school leadership having been a headteacher for 13 years to pursue a second career in Change Work. Half a decade later, colleagues are still contacting me to coach them through the application and interview process. I really enjoy supporting colleagues to fully realise the skills and impact they have to offer an employer, so have since decided to offer this opportunity to a wider audience.

My clients are typically undergraduates applying to university or graduates looking to secure their first job or a significant promotion, who aren’t sure what to write in order to stand out from the crowd. Or, people who have secured an interview but suffer from performance anxiety. I teach you how the recruitment process works to ensure equal opportunities and coach you to:

  • Clarify what job to want and why
  • Research the right job for you where you can make a difference
  • Confidently complete an application form that turns heads
  • Write a personal statement that shows impact

Whatever your chosen profession, I help you to change any fears or limiting beliefs so that you shine even brighter and secure the job or promotion you want.

Having been a school leader for nearly 20 years, I love supporting Newly Qualified Teachers [NQTs] to secure their first teaching post, as well as coaching experienced teachers to ensure their next promotion.

Why choose Tanya?

Tanya is passionate about supporting clients to secure the right job for them, as she believes that passion leads to performance and performance leads to promotion.

During her seventeen years of school leadership, Tanya led the recruitment process for all new staff and recalls one occasion when she received 120 applications for just 4 teaching posts! She notes that, “A fair and equitable recruitment process requires you to read, score and rank every application. If applicants want to stand out from the crowd, they need to write a supporting statement that not only answers the Job Description and Person Specification in full, but also shows outstanding impact, vision and personality to hold the audience. There’s an art to writing a winning application, so please get in touch if you want to shine brighter.”

What our clients have to say

  • Although I have progressed up the career ladder over the years I have always struggled with speaking publicly, particularly in important meetings. I had the privilege to work with Tanya using NLP techniques, which made these situations, not only manageable but feel second nature- instead of feeling physically sick and shaking uncontrollably I was able to deliver confidently.  Tanya used anchors and hypnotherapy to reinforce my true ability to communicate in other situations, so I could tap into this at crucial times. After an NLP session with Tanya, I was able to confidently present an inset, as well as present to school governors. Not only did I feel empowered, but other colleagues commented made. I was amazed at the difference one session made to me and can't thank Tanya enough for the difference it has made.

  • I strongly recommend Tanya Bunting Coaching for anyone who is applying for a teaching interview or a new job. After being unsuccessful at interview, my confidence was knocked. I worried that I might never get a teaching job. After working with Tanya who coached me through the entire process from lesson preparation, to delivery and formal interview, I left feeling confident and ready to take on my next interview. Throughout the interview day, I felt calm and confident as I undertook the various tasks including a lesson observation, planning task, marking and the formal interview. I was the last one to interview and they called me sooner after I got into my car to leave. I was really excited to let Tanya know that I’d accepted the job.
