Career Transition

Helping organisations to successfully support their talent at critical moments

With more of the population in work for much longer, employees’ circumstances can change numerous times over the course of their career. This provides an opportunity for organisations to boost their talent strategy and employee value proposition by supporting their people at the points where there is both greatest risk and opportunity – points of transition.

Connor’s career transition services are about helping organisations and individuals make the most of the changing world of work. Whether you’re an organisation wanting to tap into a new pool of talent and engage in succession planning, or an individual looking to take the next step or a change in their career, we’re here for you.

We recognise that everyone’s circumstances are different, that’s why we tailor our approach to every individual, providing customised support to both individuals and your organisation.

"Connor has a passion for what it does and truly cares about the people they work with. I would definitely recommend them."
