Your coach: Erica Hatfield

Erica is a career specialist for parents.

As an experienced Career Coach, HR Professional, Psychologist, Entrepreneur and Mother, she understands the ‘busyness’ of life and juggling family, work and everything in between can sometimes mean we don’t take the time to focus on our own needs. Her unique culmination of work expertise and personal life experience has equipped her to empower parents to redefine what’s possible and redesign their future using their unique strengths.

Why We’re Different

Hummingbird Careers was born from purpose.

We exist to empower parents to continue growing their careers alongside their families, and strive to create more equal opportunities through levelling the playing field for all working parents.

We are specialists with the sole focus of supporting parents transitioning their careers through parental leave and return to work. And in an unregulated industry, we stand out as highly qualified and experienced professionals.

We take a person centered approach, working intensively 1:1 to support the unique needs of each parent. We put parents at the heart of their career journey. That’s how we get the best outcomes.
