BMA Careers Coaching

One-to-one careers coaching

One-to-one career coaching gives you the chance to talk and be listened to by a skilled and impartial professional. Whether you are interested in career planning or making a change, a careers adviser can offer you the support you need to make the right decision.

BMA Careers have teamed up with The Careers Group Consultancy (formerly named C2) and their team of experienced medical career advisers to provide you with this service at a significantly discounted rate.


How will career coaching help me?

Career coaching can help you to explore and evaluate your options.

I couldn't believe how helpful and reassuring the advice I received was.

It can provide you with a detached perspective on your ideas and plans, and help you to make important decisions.

Furthermore, it can help you act on your decisions.

As well as career coaching, this service also offers practice interview sessions and CV and Application Review services.


How does it work?

As everyone is different, this service does not offer generic solutions but instead tailors each session to suit you.

Prior to a career coaching session, you will be sent a career discussion form which you will be asked to complete and return before the session. This will allow your careers adviser to prepare a bespoke session that meets your needs and requirements.


How much will it cost?

Remember - this service is available to BMA members only and at a significantly discounted rate.

Career coaching - 1 hour session: £145

Practice interview session - 1 hour session: £145

CV and Application Review - 1 hour session: £145


How do I book?

Call the BMA on 0300 123 123 3 or email us and quote your membership number.

We will put you directly in touch with The Careers Group Consultancy who will discuss how the service works and make an appointment for you.

The person I spoke to was very knowledgeable and approachable.
