Why we’re different

Helping board members and senior executives make their next move

At Connor we do things differently.

We work with you for as long as it takes you to find your next opportunity

We give you as much support as you need. There is no limit to the number of meetings and no set time duration, which means that we are there when you need us the most. We have a flexible, individual approach, giving you a personal service We recognise that every person is different and will benefit from a service that is built around them. We spend time with you before the service starts to understand you and we tailor our outplacement solution to your individual needs

"Knowing your help wouldn't end before I found my new role was incredibly reassuring."

We blend coaching with executive outplacement

We are aware that the lines between executive coaching and executive outplacement blur somewhat and senior executives like you want more than just outplacement. They welcome the opportunity to work with a peer level coach and consultant who will finesse their style. Whether that be on communication approach, personal impact or any other area of interest, we will blend elements of coaching with the executive outplacement we provide you.

 

We take a proactive approach to your search

Networking, referrals and targeted approaches mean that many of our candidates will get an opportunity that isn’t advertised externally. These methods give you the opportunities to bypass the competition and increase the likelihood of getting an opportunity that is built around what you can bring to an organisation.

"Recruitment for managing directors is complex. You helped me understand today's job market and how to access it. With Connor's support I was offered a fantastic role with a great financial package"

We support you with your new opportunity

Our service includes onboarding, which means we will help you to adapt to and be successful in the first 90 days in your next opportunity. This is particularly helpful for long serving senior executives who are leaving after being part of the same culture for a significant time. It is also useful for individuals who are doing something different such as setting up their own business or taking on their first non executive director role.

We have the deep industry knowledge, understanding and resources to manage even large-scale, global outplacement programmes.
