CareerEQ Director, Principal Consultant & Career Specialist.
Since beginning in the careers industry over 20 years ago Kaye’s experience includes HR consulting, career management coaching, and delivering and coordinating outplacement. More recently, Kaye developed the two online career self-assessments, Career Intelligence for working adults and CareerSmart for students through to their transition to work, and has trained many career practitioners in their use.
Kaye often writes (or is interviewed for) articles in key magazines and news channels on current career and job market trends. She was recently interviewed by NBR, on TVNZ’s Morning Report, and numerous times as a spokesperson for the Career Development Association of New Zealand. On radio, Kaye has been interviewed by Mark Sainsbury, Radio Live, ‘Nine to Noon’ by Kathryn Ryan, and ‘Afternoons with Jim Mora’ on topics of career/workforce issues and trends.
On-going learning and development
Being committed to on-going learning and development Kaye has an avid interest in psychology, sociology and the future of work. She has a Graduate Diploma in Career Development, is a Master NLP practitioner, has certificates in Advanced Supervision through NZAC, Enhanced Relationships Skills Training through the Imago Institute and is a Myers Briggs certified practitioner. She completed a research project in 2010 as part of the Masters in Career Development.
Kaye is a Fellow member. In 2014 and 2015 she was President of the Career Development Association of New Zealand (CDANZ). To be a Fellow member of CDANZ (FMCDANZ) a practitioner must have worked in careers for over 7 years and have made a contribution to the Career Industry. Like Professional members, Fellows are bound by a Code of Ethics which ensures that the practitioner is competent and works within an ethical framework. She is also a member of the Human Resources Institute of New Zealand (HRINZ).
CareerEQ today is very different from when it started in 2007. We now have consultants across Aotearoa New Zealand to support our growing number of business clients and individuals looking for guidance and support. Kaye now manages the practice to remain in alignment with its core principles:
We work holistically and are people-centric. Our team believe that our holistic approach to coaching delivers the best outcomes for the people we work with.
We make a difference. The people and the businesses we work with matter to us – as does the world we all live in.
We are committed to our own learning. All practitioners who work with CareerEQ are committed to their on-going learning and professional development.
