Global Career/Transition Coach
Lucy Foster has served as a global career and transition coach for IMPACT Group since 2012. She enjoys sharing her international relocation experience, local knowledge, and consulting skills with the individuals she serves. She holds a Certificate in Personnel Practice (CPP) from the UK Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, and she is experienced in recruitment, HR general practices, and outplacement. Over the years, Lucy has coached a wide variety of professionals, from corporate leaders to new graduates.
Lucy spent much of her childhood and early career in Russia, where she worked for the British Embassy in Moscow. This experience provided her with valuable insights into the challenges of living and working in a foreign – and sometime hostile – environment. She then moved to London, where she worked as a recruitment consultant and helped job seekers successfully navigate the job search process. Many of her clients were new graduates and women returning to work after having children. Lucy assisted them with identifying their professional requirements and career aspirations.
Her next position was in outplacement, which formally introduced her to career coaching and helping people manage change in a positive way during major life transitions.
Lucy is British born and holds a degree in Politics from Newcastle University. She lived in Dubai with her husband and two children from 2010 to 2015. She now lives in the UK with her family. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her children, reading, and playing golf. She also loves to travel and takes as many holidays as possible!
