Working Transitions

What is Outplacement?

Put simply, outplacement services provide both practical and emotional support to individuals affected by organisational change – in particular, redundancy. Redundancy and redeployment can be a challenging and emotive time - for the organisation, the team left behind and, most importantly, for affected individuals.

Outplacement services allow individuals to understand and accept the change – and the rollercoaster of emotions that they may experience, fully assess the options available to them and move forward with confidence to a bright, progressive future.


It’s important to understand that everyone responds differently to change and that their needs and circumstances will vary.   Working Transitions take a flexible yet simplified approach to outplacement – offering tailored programmes with personalised support.   Just some of the support options available include:

Leading through change

Leading and managing through change is often overlooked when thinking about outplacement support.  For Managers, outplacement can be a ‘double-whammy’. Not only do they have to navigate their own feelings about the change and potential job loss, they also need to sensitively and professionally support their team during the most difficult of times.  Appropriate and timely training – via group workshops or individual coaching - can ensure leaders and managers feel confident to positively influence morale, staff engagement and performance of their team during transition.

Group Workshops

Typically run over a half day or full day session, workshops are facilitated by a fully trained career coach.  Fully interactive, each session offers ample opportunity to participate, ask questions and benefit from peer group support.  Sessions include Job campaigning, CV writing, Interview Technique, Social Media and Networking, Self-Employment and Active Retirement.

One to One Coaching

Bespoke and tailored to each participant’s individual circumstances, coaching is a valuable tool to support personal development.  Our fully trained, accredited coaching team are focused on helping individuals to achieve their goals.


Our market leading outplacement portal, PowerMyCareer, provides a wealth of tools and resources via mobile, tablet or PC.  Available 24 hours a day, the portal includes tutorials, exercises, video clips and webinars to accommodate the unique needs and preferences of every individual.


The world’s largest and most reliable e-learning resource containing customised courses designed especially to support career transition.  Amongst the hundreds of topics, individuals can access courses on Microsoft Office, Project Management and Professional Certification Courses.

A well-structured outplacement programme can quickly deliver benefits to a large number of employees – regardless of geographical location - at a relatively low cost.
