Redundancy Support and Outplacement Services

In order to be market ready or ‘job ready’ the individual may require the following:

Coping with Job Loss

Our Psychologists and Counsellors are well equipped to assist people to come to terms with their situation and to sensitively work with them to the stage where they are ready to approach the job market. 

Professional Resume

Counsellors will work with the person to ensure that they have a professional, marketing tool that will assist the individual to sell themselves into the appropriate job.  How to use your Referees will also be addressed as well as how to write effective letters of application that address the job vacancy’s selection criteria. 

Interview Techniques

Our experienced interviewers will work with the individual providing them with interview strategies and ‘mock interviews’ to assist the individual to practice their skills.  A ‘sales presentation’ will also be developed so that they put forward their most positive and targeted information at interview.  Behavioural interview techniques may also be discussed and practiced. 

Career Evaluation and Career Plan 

To enable the individual to write their resume and perform during interviews the individual will undertake a career evaluation and formulate a career plan.  An analysis of the individual’s strengths and weaknesses, values, interests, personality and other personal characteristics will be explored.  These will be considered in the context of appropriate jobs for the person, the current job market will also be taken into consideration. 

Job Search 

Once the individual’s skills an interests are understood, job search activities can then be formed.  This includes how and where to apply for advertised jobs and strategies to access jobs within the ‘hidden job market’. 

Keeping motivated in your Job Search
