Outplacement Solutions

Facilitated by experienced consultants, our Outplacement Programmes, Group Workshops and Stand Alone Services are tailored to suit the individual and designed with practical support in mind.

Programmes

“Core Essentials”

A comprehensive package equipping employees with the tools required to support them through transition from redundancy into the job market. This package delivers 4 x 60 minute 1:1 sessions, covering Job Search Strategies, Networking, Interview Skills, and CV Development as well as an additional half hour coaching session.  Facilitated by trained, supportive and experienced coaches, this is ideal for support staff through to mid-level management. Sessions can be held both on and off-site.

“Comprehensive”

Ideal for more senior members of staff this 6 x 60 minute package includes the development of a CV and Cover Letter, and can also cover a wide range of topics such as interview techniques, networking, managing recruiters, cold calling and career planning. Tailored to the needs of the individual, we are able to support, motivate and equip your employees through what can sometimes be an isolating and lengthy process.

Additional Coaching

For individuals needing extra support, additional one-off 60 minute coaching sessions are available.

 Group Workshops

Workshops can be an efficient and effective way to deliver support to a group of individuals or a team exiting the business. Delivered as either a half day or full day, each workshop is tailored to cater to your group's needs.

Working with a ratio of 1:10 facilitator:attendees, workshop modules can include CV and Cover Letter Development, Interview Skills, Job Search Strategies, Employment Agencies, Networking and LinkedIn.

All workshops are designed to be interactive, with attendees obtaining both informative and practical solutions that they can apply immediately.  

An additional half hour coaching session is available to each participant and built in to the workshop package.

Unbundled Services

For smaller budgets we also deliver stand alone services, for even greater flexibility.

CV Development

To maximise interview success rate, a compelling CV is an essential tool. Beginning with an initial 60 minute phone consultation, an experienced consultant will then develop a draft CV specific to the requirements of the individual within a turn-around time of 5 working days. Final touches are then added to ensure the end document is complete to the satisfaction of the individual.

LinkedIn Profile

To maximise networking and job search success, a profile that is up to date, professional, completed, aligned to the CV and fully optimised is critical. Reviewed by many employers and employment agencies looking to hire talent, it is imperative a LinkedIn profile provides the right information in the right way. We can create a new or update an existing profile.

Job Search Strategies

Knowing and understanding effective job search strategies is imperative in such a competitive employment market. Individuals re-entering the world of work can sometimes feel overwhelmed with where and how to start. Our expert consultants can de-mystify the confusion, providing practical guidance and support to the individual in formulating strategies and key action steps, increasing awareness of proactive measures and relationship management.

Interview Skills

A 60 minute interactive session with an experienced consultant; this option is perfect for any individual feeling anxious about an upcoming interview or re-entering the job market, and looking to build confidence and preparedness. Covering live job analysis; how to identify what an employer will look for; general and competency based interview questions; a useful formula to help keep on track with interview responses; and mock interview practise, our consultants provide the individual with constructive feedback, guidance and support throughout. Sessions can be delivered face-to-face (in Auckland) or via phone or Skype throughout New Zealand.

Additional Coaching

For individuals wanting extra support, additional one-off 60 minute coaching sessions are also available.
