In addition to the benefits of the Executive
Outplacement Programme, the Enhanced Executive Outplacement Programme
provides personal access to a live commercial database service,
providing valuable up to date information on market changes. This
database is a valuable tool to assist in accessing the 'unadvertised'
job market, sectors and localities. Combined with our methodology
for accessing the unadvertised job market, the information provided
via this source helps senior executives to market themselves intelligently
and effectively. To ensure that the campaign is progressing as planned
and, if necessary adjust or amend the strategy, the Enhanced Outplacement
Programme also includes a four hour, face to face, review some weeks
after the the initial consultancy. As with all our outplacement
programmes, our consultants normally provide the programme on site,
or at your preferred location, so your people do not have the inconvenience
of needing to travel. The Enhanced Executive Outplacement Programme
is always tailored to meet the specific circumstances and requirements,
but typically covers:
Preparatory Pack: -
The preparatory pack is normally dispatched within one day of your
order being placed. This provides introductory information about
the programme, together with the behavioural profiling survey, a
self-audit questionnaire, draft CV guide, plus tips and information
for getting started. This allows the individual to immediately focus
his/her attention to the task of repositioning themselves in the
market place and to maximise the effectiveness of the main programme.
Executive Manual: - Our comprehensive
Executive Outplacement manual is presented in a high quality binder
and provides 11 modules of quality information with detailed index
for ease of use. The information provided is not only relevant to
the job search and career development but also, as many delegates
have commented, applicable to many other aspects of business &
life. This manual provides detailed information and revision notes
on all of the issues, plus tracking sheets and diagrams. This is
complemented by industry specific and/or person specific relevant
Strategic Planning: - This includes identification
and qualification of key goals and preplanning exercises to provide
clarity and maximise the effectiveness of the planning process.
Good planning and monitoring is an essential component of the process,
and has a significant impact on the candidate's success.
Developing your Curriculum Vitae: - The
CV or resume is the candidate's 'calling card'. We provide step-by-step
guidance for each individual to develop a well structured CV, appropriate
to the position sought, which will maximise their chances of being
invited for interview. The finished CV is carefully evaluated by
the consultant to ensure high quality and relevance.
Understanding the Job Market: - It is
important to understand the status of the job market in your current
&/or chosen area. We also cover the unadvertised job market
and provide up-to-date information on the current market status,
together with lists of useful contacts.
6 Months personal access to ExecuBank:
This live commercial, business intelligence database,
provides a unique and vital competitive edge to the job seeker by
offering access to the 80% of opportunities that never get formally
advertised. The service taps directly into the live database compiled
by Mandis Information Services. Mandis services are used by; The
Sunday Times, BBC, Bank of England and others. The system provides
easy access to real time information about dynamic changes in the
top 100,000 UK companies. It provides an insight to those companies
that are restructuring, involved in mergers & acquisitions,
developing internationally, winning large orders, relocating etc.
A knowledge of these issues, coupled with the right approach, significantly
improves the probability of a positive result to a proactive approach
Behavioural Profiling: - Behavioural
profiling can assist the individual in discovering the kind of role
he or she is most suited to. The delegate undertakes a survey of
142 questions. The analysis examines the four major areas of behaviour.
It covers both the primary profile, and the environmental adjustment
that the individual imposes on his/her tendencies. Each individual
receives direct consultation against his/her profile and how this
could affect the selection process.
One-to-one in depth consultation providing
advice and guidance: - Usually the service is delivered on a
one-to-one basis over a period of three and a half days. The initial
programme spanning three days, plus a four hour one-to-one review
meeting some weeks later(see below). As with the executive outplacement
programme, the Enhanced Outplacement Programme can be offered as
an Integrated Outplacement Programme. In such cases, significant
confidential one-to-one consultation is provided for each executive,
in accordance with their needs (generally around 7 hours per person).
Delegates also have the advantage of a mentor to work with them
throughout their search, to provide advice, information and guidance.
CV tailoring, interview preparation, interview practice and interview
debrief are very popular and particularly effective at the middle
and senior management levels.
Marketing Yourself: - Viewing oneself
as a commodity is an alien concept to most people. We show the delegate(s)
how to apply the principles of marketing to themselves, and how
to conduct a proactive and effective marketing campaign utilising
traditional and the most up-to-date methods. This combined with
market Intelligence available via ExecuBank gives the executive
a vital competitive edge.
Transferable Skills: - In a shrinking
market it may be necessary to widen the field of options a little.
We deal with how and where the delegate(s) can reposition themselves
most successfully. The more senior the position the more difficult
this becomes, so close interaction afforded to these delegates is
Interview Technique: - Understanding
the objectives of the interview and how you can best prepare yourself
are both fundamental to success. These issues are covered in depth
with exercises to assist, and practice to perfect.
Consultancy, Interim Management and Contract
Roles: - Whilst this may be a preferred option for some, it
can also be a useful stopgap for others. We examine the pros and
cons and the practicalities.
Business Opportunities: - Information
on setting up as an independent consultant &/or on starting
a business is included, where appropriate.
Dealing with Stress: - Our unique approach
provides a cognitive appraisal of the mechanisms of stress and practical
techniques for overcoming these.
Follow-on Review Meeting: The
value of the follow-on review meeting has been highlighted by our
clients and consultants alike. Normally this meeting takes place
4-8 weeks after the initial consultation. An agenda is jointly developed
and agreed beforehand. Typically this busy meeting will include
such topics as: strategy review, alterations and enhancements to
the search, current applications, specific interview practice and
Unlimited Follow-up Consultation and Mentoring:
- The delegate will have access to his/her consultant to provide
a follow-on support service, to track progress and provide guidance
on specific applications and issues arising. Each
delegate can therefore get personal help as and when they need it.
Should any issue arise that is not covered in the manual, or the
delegate simply wants reassurance or advice, e-mail or telephone
contact is available. For the executive programmes, this support
service is unlimited in duration.
- Proactive marketing campaign by one of our experienced consultants,
additional face-to-face consultancy.
