Executive Outplacement

Helping board members and senior executives make their next move

At Connor we understand that career transition for senior executives is complex and that’s why we do things differently. Our executive outplacement service is exclusive, confidential and has a track record of helping senior executives to secure the right next opportunity.

While other providers typically offer a time bound service, we take a fundamentally different approach.

We work with you for as long as it takes to find your next opportunity. There is no set number of meetings and no set time duration. This means we are there for you when you need us the most. Whether you are looking to pursue a corporate career, set up in business, establish a portfolio career or not sure what to do next, we have the expertise to make a real difference.

Bespoke, flexible and built around your unique needs

Our executive outplacement service is completely bespoke, flexible and built around your unique needs.

Companies look at recruiting executives in a similar way to acquiring another business. It’s important to demonstrate how you will provide your next employer with a return on investment and reduce their risk.

We will match you to a peer level consultant who has the right experience, style and approach that suits you, we do not leave these things to chance.
