What is Outplacement Services and Who is it for?
Outplacement services provide total job search support usually to those facing redundancy. The service can be provided on a 121 basis or group workshops.
Providing practical and emotional specialist career coaching support that will enable an individual to navigate the competitive job market and move into appropriate new employment as soon as possible.
It also enables organisations to focus their time on business operations rather than divert often considerable time and energy needed to support leavers and the morale of the retained team.

“I’m the Founder of Your Interview Coach set up in 2013 when my idea to help both candidates and hiring managers through the complexities of the recruitment and selection process became a passion and a burning desire!”
The majority of my interviewing experience is from 12 years as an In-house Recruiter. 6 years within Manufacturing and Engineering and 6 years experience working in a Corporate Bank in the City of London.
Prior to being an in-house Recruiter I had hiring experience as a team leader in the NHS and then as a Manager in the Private Healthcare Sector. I was responsible for the recruitment for the South-East of England and this gave me valuable experience to move into HR.
