Making changes to your organisation and letting valued people go is one of the toughest things you can face as a Leader or HR professional in an organisation. We are living in turbulent times and anyone facing job loss right now can find it frightening and overwhelming.
It is essential for your organisation’s reputation, to provide effective and empathetic support for your people who need to find a way to move on and we know this matters to you too.
What is the answer?
Conventional outplacement provides assistance to review CVs, look at options and brush up on interview skills and these are all essential parts of the process but may not always be enough to support people who need to re-evaluate, dig deep and make a successful transition to a new role, career or way of working when opportunities seem limited and competition is fierce.
Executive coaching can provide a lot more support in the areas of psychological transition and personal growth that underpin positive career changes but this is a more premium option.
Our flexible, high value career transitions programme enables you to take more ownership and, offers a lifeline to people who are facing an uncertain future. The step by step process underpins the personal journey that we all need to take when we are looking for new work.
We have brought together and distilled the expertise and experience of our team of career coaches, organisational psychologists, recruiters and change specialists to create a career portal that provides essential support and information and pulls together insights from leading thinkers in a digestible way. It allows participants to go at their own speed and focus on areas that are most important to them and means you can offer immediate, flexible support to your people when they need it most.
This could be used with staff who have been identified at risk in a supportive group environment or 1-2-1 with an HR or L&D professional facilitating the process or could be offered to staff as a self-managed resource who are about the leave the organisation.
We provide a wide range of resources to support them during their next phase of their career journey such as:

Top tips & videos
Links to CV templates and covering letter templates

‘I was introduced to the careers transition portal after speaking with a friend during my redundancy consultation period. It was a very difficult time as the redundancy came out of the blue and from a company I had been with for 11 years it was a big part of my life. I described the process I was going through to my friend of being very similar to the grieving process, a real rollercoaster of emotions!
The portal is full of really good advice, tips and videos. I personally found the Holland Code Career test very interesting and surprised at how accurate the results were; it gave me added confidence that I am going down the right career path. The sections on personal brand, your network and online presence made me really think and look at these things and off the back of it have actioned things which have already given me positive results. A great tool I would recommend to anyone whatever stage of your career you are at.’ Claire C ‘Marketing Executive’
‘The careers transitions portal is impressive. If you haven’t had an interview for many years or are looking for a complete rethink when it come to work there’s a lot to think about and lots of things that are new. The portal brings everything together in a friendly and accessible way and provides key tips and tools to help you move forward.’ West End Theatre Manager.
