Career assessment is usually offered as a 1:1 service where one of our experts will discuss their career journey with each individual. The impartiality of this process coupled with a different perspective and guidance from a trained professional is always positive and helpful.
A session considers predictable options for the future plus other choices which the employee may not have thought of. Our advisers are skilled and knowledgeable in a variety of industries and sectors. Their experience can help to identify different job roles, career paths, or a change of direction which is not always apparent to the individual.
Our expert consultants audit and identify each employee’s abilities and skill set, this includes experience and skills acquired outside their current role. These may be transferable, and our advisers can identify opportunities in the same industry or adjacent careers, skills gaps, and retraining options. Employees feel valued by the provision of this service.
CV preparation is a big part of outplacement services. Our experts help employees update their employment resume with the most up-to-date formatting and presentation. We rebuild from the ground upward creating a document that ensures each individual will be on the interview list when it comes to the selection process for a new job.
Our consultants also assist with drafting application letters, and we have a range of templates to cover almost every scenario which can be tailored to suit the specific circumstances by your employees.
We assist individuals who want to create or update a LinkedIn profile which can be a crucial element in developing new opportunities and competing successfully for the best jobs. It allows employees to maximise their opportunities on this site which has its own jobs board and is regularly used by recruiters looking for new staff.
Interview Advice and Presentations
Our expert consultants cover every element of the interview process from what to wear to which questions to ask. Workshops include mock interviews with feedback and constructive advice to improve performance. We help with question-and-answer preparation for a specific employer and role so that a candidate makes the best possible impression.
Our consultants work with employers in a variety of sectors and industries and are fully versed in all the different interview techniques and assessment processes.
Psychological support is offered to all employees regardless of the length of employment or seniority. Losing a job is a difficult and anxious time and your employees will be appreciative of the support that outplacement services can offer on an emotional and psychological level.
Feelings of confusion and rejection are not uncommon. Our consultants reassure, advise and guide, rebuilding confidence and replacing any negative feelings of rejection and worthlessness with a positive mindset. This is achieved with a mix of practical and emotional support.
The Employment Document Library
Employees will have access to an extensive virtual document library so they can undertake their own research in addition to the support they receive from our consultants.
The library contains CV templates, pro forma application letters, and a wealth of information about employers, recruiters, and different industries. There are useful webinars on how to handle job applications and hone the best interview techniques. This remote tool can be offered for a six-month period by which time most employees will have moved onto a new role.
Extras for Senior Staff and Executives
Your business can choose enhanced outplacement services for senior staff, managers, heads of departments, and executives. This includes a dedicated outplacement consultant with unlimited 1:1 support and extensive help and advice on all aspects of job relocation including evaluating new job offers.
Higher level outplacement support also offers help with negotiating and drafting new employment contracts plus proactive company research. This is where the outplacement consultant will search for organisations and businesses which may offer an employment match and approach their recruitment services with individual employee resumes.
