The Executive Outplacement Programme provides
an in-depth and personalised option for senior managers across the
UK. It is also appropriate for senior executives, middle management
and technical experts. The executive outplacement programmes are
normally delivered on a one-to-one basis, but can also be tailored
for smaller audiences or integrated into group outplacement programmes.
Our outplacement consultants normally provide the programme on site,
or at your preferred location, so your people do not have the inconvenience
of travel. The Executive Outplacement Programme is always tailored
to meet the specific circumstances and requirements, but typically
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.
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 three day period. However, where delivery
of the main body of the programme is to a small group (i.e. 2 or
more), confidential one-to-one consultation is provided for each
individual, in accordance with their needs (generally around 7 hours
each). 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.
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.
Unlimited Follow-up Consultation and Mentoring:
- The delegate will have access to his/her consultant to provide
a follow-on support service, to track his/her 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.
- On-line commercial database providing access to the unadvertised
