Career Transition services are needed when an individual, voluntarily or involuntarily, leaves an organisation and requires assistance to:
- Define or re-define their career goals
- Gain new employment or establish a portfolio career
- Explore self employment options
- Plan and manage their new career
- Prepare and plan for a Portfolio Career
Directioneering recognises the stresses that departures place on both the organisation and the individual and offers a highly personalised, tailored approach that supports both parties.
We help the employer plan and manage the departure, providing notification support and training for both the HR function and line management. We are on site at the time of termination discussions and advise on the most effective and appropriate change management strategies.
One-to-one coaching is given to the departing employee to develop an understanding of their particular circumstances and unique needs.
By building a trusting, collaborative relationship with the impacted employee, we help them adjust more quickly to the change and start constructively planning and taking their next career steps.
Specialist support is provided for senior executives who may face their own particular circumstances or unique needs. A senior consultant is there to provide in-depth assessment of the executive’s career to date, analysis of the most appropriate options for which to plan, advice in identifying relevant career goals and strategies, and active support in implementing these strategies. Specific input is provided for those considering self employment, portfolio careers and board positions. Strategic financial advice from experts and comprehensive health assessment are also provided in addition to other ancillary services.
“Directioneering provided a thoroughly professional and supportive program for me upon my exit from the organisation after 11 years of service. They took me through a structured and well researched process to enable me to make sound and well considered decisions about my next steps. The result is I am now enjoying a challenging new role with great prospects.”
