As experienced Career Management Consultants our role is to support participants in coping with change and managing their health & wellbeing, enabling them to remain resilient throughout their career transition program and job search.

Our programs also assist client organisations navigate their way through the complexities of restructuring, planning for redundancies and ‘on-the-day’ support for departing and retained employees.

While a delicate time for organisations and employees alike, experience shows that when handled in a positive, well-structured and sensitive manner these periods of change and transition can ensure organisations remain an ‘Employer of Choice’ and their employees remain resilient and confident.

We tailor flexible programs to best suit the organisations budget and the individual’s needs and career aspirations. A designated Senior Consultant will guide the participant throughout their program spending much of the time in ‘one-on-one’ discussions either face-to-face or online.

With a strong emphasis on the individual’s mental health and wellbeing the program includes; evaluating the participant’s transferable skills, defining their career objective, preparation and reformatting of resumes, applications and cover letters, professional networking, self-marketing strategies, job applications, interview techniques and social media.
