Two investing Non-Executive Directors are required for our client who are developing innovative personal career coaching services, based in London.

The Non-Executive Directors will be encouraged to become shareholders in the company to align the incoming non-Executive’s interest with that of the existing Directors who are all shareholders.

Business Concept 

  • Our client is a personal career coach that lives on Slack, powered by AI and a sassy attitude.
  • The company is a product-first team on a mission to make work better for everyone.
  • They help employees self-reflect on their careers, learn new skills, and have better relationships with their managers and peers in a way that's actually effective and entertaining so that employees don't feel like they're working. Think Duolingo but for professional development.
  • The company builds educational products based on behavioural science, organizational psychology, and professional coaching and deliver them in 10-minute activities via chat. Using AI and NLP they analyse people's responses and provide personalized insights, action steps, and progress over time in a beautiful dashboard.
  • The company’s first product is a Slack-based bot currently in private beta.
  • Here's what one of their recent users had to say:

“They help me think more strategically about my career, my strengths and weaknesses, and my goals. I like the daily task format - it really helps me retain the learnings much more than a one-off workshop. The 1:1 manager prompts helped me articulate my goals to my manager and improved our relationship. I have a much clearer idea of what I want to achieve and how to do it.”
