My name is Tim McGavin, 72 years old, a family man, retired and living in Betty's Bay. I have many years’ of HR experience with recruitment in Corporations being a main focus. Finding the “right fit for the organisation” was always my most interesting and rewarding experience.

I am able to advise you and highlight your true value to a potential employer – producing a more appealing and creative CV (the facts) and introductory letter (your opinions, thoughts and aspirations).

I would charge a small fee of R100, with all proceeds going to a local charity. The age range? ….Age is just a number so it would be from matriculants upwards.

I have found that people understandably

  • feel that their experience limits them – “ once a salesman, always a salesman”!
  • often underestimate or don’t know their true value,
  • lack confidence in selling themselves - don’t understand what makes a good candidate and therefore underplay what they have to offer
  • are bored, want to move but not sure how, or, see unemployment as an impossible hurdle.

There are answers to these situations.

I would need approximately 4 – 5 hours face time, split into 2 3 periods. I would work in the vicinity of Overstrand – preferably Bettys Bay – and limit myself to 2 “projects” a week.
