Outplacement Services

The turbulent economy, combined with the intention of the Government to reduce the budget deficit, has triggered a period of dramatic and fast-moving change across the public sector. For many public service organisations, this will necessitate extensive staff reduction programmes. From our recent discussions with leadership teams, we know that having the capacity and capability to bring about this level of reconfiguration within the organisation and effectively manage the exit of staff is a major concern.

Our daily, hands on experience of preparing and recruiting candidates, as well as our expertise in job search skills, means that we can provide a fresh, cost effective service. Our extensive network of decision-makers provides a real-time ‘ear to the ground’ for candidates getting ready to market themselves to new employers.

We offer a core programmes that covers a mix of group and individual activity plus a range of additional elements, tailored to meet the needs of the individual. These include:

  • A workshop programme focusing upon the current skills required to job search effectively and market, including preparation for retirement or self employment.
  • One to one coaching sessions with participants to support successful career transition.
  • Online portal provision for participants to proactively manage their job search, tailored as required.
  • For certain senior candidates with clear transferable skills, a programme of pro-active, dedicated job search by our consultants targeting appropriate employers in both the public and private sectors.
