FJ is a highly accomplished Executive Coach, with a wealth of experience supporting blue chip organisations within the financial services industry.
FJ commenced her journey at UBS in London, leading the company-wide contract recruitment division. From there, she moved to Barclays Wealth International, overseeing both UAE and Singapore recruitment. Her skill and passion for coaching became truly apparent at Lloyd’s of London, the world’s oldest and largest insurance market, renowned for their HR operations. Whilst there, FJ, along with her team, redefined the company recruitment process for both experienced hires and graduate schemes. The team reported directly to the CHRO and CEO and was responsible for presenting ideas to industry leaders who in turn, advised the UK Government.
This led FJ to begin her own HR consultancy and coaching practice, Clearview With FJ. Corporate clients have included some of the world’s most highly recognised and reputable organisations including GE Capital, Thompson Reuters, Ariel Reinsurance, BlackRock Asset Management and PricewaterhouseCoopers. She also took on the role of Executive Career Coach at the world-acclaimed London School of Economics.
With over 20 years’ experience in the HR and recruitment industry, FJ has mastered the skill of behavioural profiling. Her experience and exposure to date has repeatedly demonstrated that our career decisions are largely based on our experiences as children. For this reason, when working with students and young adults, FJ’s emphasis is on their environment, focusing on their individual desires, fears, peers, siblings and family, in order to truly understand their triggers, challenges and drives.
FJ discovered first-hand the importance of forward planning, when mapping out your career path. In her final year of school, illness impeded her studies and at the tender age of 17, all childhood aspirations and hopes for the future seemed to be falling apart. Whilst the support and encouragement from her family was unrelenting, support from her school was not forthcoming and the knowledge and resources to explore opportunities and options outside a conventional career path, were simply not readily available.
FJ, however, refused to settle. Her innate ambition, resilience, work ethic and determination enabled her to forge her own career path, resulting in being one of the most successful and respected women in her industry today. She believed in herself to fulfil her own potential and now, believes in others, to fulfil theirs.
This challenging start shaped her into the person she is today, with a business dedicated to facilitating, supporting, coaching and enabling the career ambitions of others. It all comes down to creating a clear view. It’s all in the name!
