Whether you're in the early stages of your career, a seasoned veteran, or at the top of your career, facing redundancy or feeling stuck in the wrong job is hard to face.


That's why we provide  Outplacement and Career Planning that's created to meet your needs.  Whether it's a large scale redundancy programme or individual support, you'll find answers to your questions.


We know the prospect of losing your job is frightening, stressful and can be soul-destroying.  It's particularly difficult if you've been employed by the same company for many years and either never had an interview or your last one was for the job you have now.

In times like this some people feel paralysed, lost, and lose confidence and self esteem.  Our work enables you to recognise your skills and strengths.  Our career direction coaching and programmes are developed to build confidence and bring clarity for your next steps.
