Outplacement for your organisation

Helping people leaving you to move on quickly and confidently


Outplacement provides employees who are leaving your organisation with practical career advice and coaching support to help them to make their next move. Our outplacement service can support you on a local, national and international basis.

Some providers just don't give you a personal service every time. Your partnership with Connor will be different – your people will receive individual care and attention.

Topics that are covered by our outplacement service include: career planning; CV writing and LinkedIn; targeting the job market; interview preparation; job offer and salary and benefits negotiation; and onboarding – the process of adjusting to life in a new role.

Outplacement services

We can provide: one to one outplacement support, which is popular for senior executives and individuals; group outplacement; or a flexible solution based on your requirements. Take a look at what's included in each case:

One to one outplacement

Flexible, personal support to those facing a career change:
