About the Sessions

Sagent Recruitment would like to invite 12 female IET members to a series of facilitated peer coaching sessions. Each session will be 2 hours, with time for informal networking before and after.

  • Are you struggling to get noticed for your accomplishments?
  • Would you like to raise your profile in your organisation?
  • Do you need to refine your negotiating skills before asking for a promotion, or a new project?
  • Are you unsure how to navigate the politics and power structure of your organisation?
  • Would you benefit from clarifying your career objectives if you are facing major work-life changes?

Through peer coaching, female engineers working in different organisations can share ideas, learn from each other and build a network of peers. In a supportive, inclusive coaching environment, participants learn to ask incisive questions of each other and reflect on their behaviours and challenges in the work place.


It’s often easier to share issues about career development, balancing life in and outside of work, professional crossroads, etc, in a setting which is separate and confidential from your workplace. In informal but structured discussions, you can develop tools to help you address these issues confidently.

Using real-world examples participants can both give and gain insight into issues faced by women in the engineering industry, regardless of where you are in your working life. Each session will build on the skills discussed so far, so while it is recommended that you attend all six sessions to gain the most benefit, there is no strict commitment and you will not lose your place if you are unable to attend one of the sessions.
