My name is Nicolette Wykeman (1968) and I came to London April 2009 as an expatriate partner. Having been the owner of a successful coaching company ‘2 Wykeman Coaching’ in Amsterdam for 5 years, I now found myself with expert skills but without a career. As such, I have spent the last years building specialist knowledge in the London career market- including as a business advisor for the Chamber of Commerce and obviously actively maintain and expand my knowledge. The beginning of 2017 I moved to Hove, in East Sussex, and I am settled as a career coach helping other expatriate partners in the same position by offering career guidance, setting up their own business and building and maintaining their social and business networks. Beside that, I work as an Associate Careers Consultant for different Business Schools in London.
London can be quite overwhelming and my company is here to connect you with the right people and companies in London and outside London. A good network will give you new ideas, leads and will open many doors.
I also contribute to the Expat arrival guide; working in London. On their website you can find also useful general information about living in London. Besides I run CV workshops at Focus; a community for expats and international professionals living in London.
