Career Development and Outplacement

We are able to provide a range of support to organisations and individuals in career development and transition. This can include advice, guidance and training on career and lifestyle choices, CV preparation, conducting a job search, employment options, portfolio careers, self-employment, interview techniques etc.

Workshop success:

  • The revised CV and the tips you provided have helped me to get two interviews in the past couple of weeks for two exciting opportunities.
  • The network beat the recruiters as you predicted. Number 43 on the networking list lead to a series of discussions and then a job offer.
  • The ideas to improve my CV were great and the new finished one I am sure will be on top of the pile.
  • I was a little sceptical before our meeting – but how wrong I was! The last 45 minutes have been probably the most useful meeting I have had in a long time…
  • I really appreciated your general guidance and also your specific extremely helpful advice about structuring and content of my CV

Client views

I have to say (1) your flexibility and responsiveness have been really appreciated; and (2) the positive feedback on all of your support has been great (and has afforded me some reflected glory!).

Seriously the support has enabled a number of colleagues to properly move on, and in some cases to have already successfully secured new employment (despite being really rusty and unprepared) – so thank you.

Graeme Etheridge, IWM Change Director
We receive consistently good feedback and the absence of complaints is nothing short of miraculous.

I found that to be extremely useful and helpful. Barry is, to my mind, absolutely excellent at his job.
Declan C
I have just spent 45 minutes with Barry under the Directors Advice Scheme. I must admit I was a little sceptical before our meeting – but how wrong I was! The last 45 minutes have been probably the most useful meeting I have had in a long time. Barry helped point out the way forward for me, exploring many options and generating many suggestions.

Richard T
The advice on the various procedures in finding a new position has proved beneficial already. I have also presented the report that I was preparing when we spoke. This also appears to have been well-received – helped by your procedure suggestions.

I wanted to thank you for your time and the very useful advice you gave me when we met a few weeks ago.
Julian G
Thank you for your time earlier – some very useful information and ideas.

Our Experience

We have many years of experience in Career Development, here are some examples:

For the past two years or so the Imperial War Museum has been implementing a major change programme which has resulted in some redundancies and also in a need for career development advice for certain staff. We have assisted in making this transition as smooth as possible by providing individual advice to staff through a series of meetings tailored to the specific requirements of each person. The advice provided has included identifying career and lifestyle objectives, identifying skills, strengths and experience, preparing CV’s, conducting job searches, social media and online applications, interview skills including handling difficult questions, options other than employment and any other topics relevant to the person concerned.
For the past 17 years we have provided an HR Advisory Service to members of the Institute of Directors. This has included a significant amount of advice in relation to career development and job searches and running courses on these topics for directors seeking new career paths. See comments below.
