All scientists wear white coats

All programmers are men called Dave

Technical people are all nerds – right?

Work with Me

Coaching session

Trying to navigate a tricky work issue? Unsure about where your career is going?

I am a qualified coach who has been in and around STEM people for over 25 years. I've been there, worn the lab coat.

Book in for a coaching session and we will unpack the issue, explore options and focus on the next steps.

Application clinic

Found the dream job? Need some advice on your application?

I've lost count of the number of CVs, application forms and covering leters I've reviewed. I've helped people sell themselves brilliantly on paper.

Book in for a clinic session and we will review your application. Together we can really make it shine!

Quick cuppa

Unsure if we would make a great team? Worried that coaching might be a bit 'fluffy'?

Well scientists are trained sceptics!

Book in for a quick virtual chat. Grab a cuppa (I'll be having coffee!) and let's talk.

What People Are Saying

Emma Williams was just what I needed! Her expertise of what postgraduate education truly involves helped massively in deciding whether to pursue a Masters degree or not. As a woman in STEM, I benefited massively from being able to talk to someone who understands exactly what careers in STEM are all about; a service I’d never had access to before. Highly recommended!



I recently made the transition from an academic postdoc position to industry. Stepping into unchartered territories, Emma was instrumental in helping me prepare for a successful interview at GSK. Providing me with an invaluable mock-interview session, she prompted me to organise my experience and academic achievements into clear, measurable, industry-friendly responses. She was flexible and able to fit around my busy work schedule, we first spoke over Skype and then met in person. I would highly recommend Emma for anyone in a similar position!


Senior scientist

Emma is an excellent coach. She is an excellent and sympathetic listener, giving me time and space to articulate my thoughts. She also demonstrated sound judgement in using what I said to help coach me on next steps and make further reflections. I would recommend her without hesitation.
