Madge is easy to relate to and quickly identifies your needs and drivers. Her interventions ignited thought processes which pushed me to explore my career direction in a productive and positive way.She has a very comprehensive understanding of what works in the corporate environment, and what detracts. These insights, coupled with her ability to unlock preconceptions, is hugely valuable.Through the efforts of The Change Initiative I felt confident presenting myself as a marketable product once again, which I’m delighted to say resulted in securing a new and challenging job.I came to The Change Initiative wanting guidance and change, and they delivered.

About Us

The Change Initiative emanated from the Executive Search industry.

We have spent many years supporting HR Directors and CEO’s in their search for talent, and we know what they want to see in candidates. 

We also know, why people don’t get hired.

Even the most qualified and experienced of candidates have fallen foul to the recruitment process. It’s simply a case of ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’.

It is because of this that The Change Initiative was formed, to provide expert insights into how and why employers choose one candidate over another. 

When you understand the rules of the game – you are able to compete more effectively than those who don’t.

The Change Initiative tailors its programs to support individuals embarking on a career change. Whether proactively gearing up for a promotion or facing retrenchment, we have the knowledge and facilities to support the process and provide a distinct advantage.
