Redundancy

We work with both organisations and individuals who are unfortunately being made redundant and we have a number of redundancy and outplacement packages to suit individuals and organisations.

Redundancy 

On being made redundant you may want to get straight back into a similar role, alternatively you may want to change career or it can be an ideal opportunity to consider your options before moving forward. 

Stirling Careers Consultancy also offers support following settlement agreements (previously known as compromise agreement). Stirling Careers Consultancy works with organisations and individuals to understand their needs and provide bespoke solutions to help you manage the transition process.

Being made redundant can feel very lonely and daunting, particularly if you have not applied for a job for some time. Understanding the contemporary job market and planning the way forward can be challenging but careers and outplacement services can guide you through the process step-by-step. The thought of looking for a new job writing your CV, making applications, preparing for interviews and developing your sales pitch to prospective employers can seem quite daunting.

Being made redundant is an ideal opportunity to take a step back and reassess your options whether it be returning to learning, voluntary work, assessing other career opportunities or setting up in business.

All the research suggests that people who are being made redundant are more likely to make a successful transition to their next destination if they are helped through the process.  

Careers and Outplacement Services

Stirling Careers Consultancy offers careers and outplacement services for organisations making people redundant and for individuals who are also being made redundant who may need help with the transition process.

Stirling Careers Consultancy Settlement Agreement

Stirling Careers Consultancy outplacement services can provide the practical and emotional support needed for your job search in a competitive and challenging marketplace place.

We have a range of outplacement options to support you in your transition to a new role/ destination:

What do we offer?

A One-Off Career Review

This is a programme for those who know exactly the types of roles they are looking for next.  Working on a one-to-one basis with your career consultant, this programme provides lots of practical help, support and guidance needed to secure your new role in a very competitive job market.

Stirling Careers Consultancy provides a range of job search workshops which can be a cost-effective outplacement solution where numbers of staff are being made redundant from organisations.  Stirling Careers Consultancy works closely with your HR team to provide bespoke training solutions.

  • Application forms
  • Interview techniques
  • Mock interviews
  • Choosing a career
  • Career management

Larger Scale Redundancies

The above workshops are supported by one to one career coaching sessions, where clients can confidentially explore their career options with a trained career coach and given an agreed action plan to take away. These sessions will help you understand what is out there, both learning and work-now and in the future. It also helps you to aim high and achieve your potential. These workshops and coaching sessions can be delivered on-site or at an alternative venue.

How we work? 

We will meet with your Human Resource Department or senior member of staff to understand your training requirements.  We will then write a proposal outlining a programme of support and costs.  

Once the proposal has been agreed we will then agree costs, dates and times and Stirling Careers Consultancy will prepare a service level agreement to be agreed by both parties.  Once the service level agreement has been agreed and signed and before we deliver the training we ask all attendees to complete a short pre-seminar questionnaire.  

With career coaching sessions we ask all those requiring career coaching to complete a short questionnaire and return it to us along with their CV. This is to ensure that the time spent together is used to its full potential. A career coaching session takes an hour.  

If Stirling Careers Consultancy needs to do any follow-up research afterwards it will be emailed through to you afterwards.
