Using our extensive experience in the non-profit sector across recruitment, consulting, and training, we have developed a unique and specialised third sector career development programme that offers a number of services designed to help you achieve your career goals.
We can help you spruce up your CV and/or LinkedIn, perfect your interview technique and support you with cognitive behavioural coaching. Additionally, we have a bespoke package to help those individuals that would like to make the crossover into the non-profit sector.
Organisations are facing difficult times and career transition following organisational restructure can be a stressful and time-consuming process for organisations and individuals alike to face alone. Our bespoke outplacement programme supports staff across all levels of seniority to make a successful transition to the next chapter of their professional life. We work with each individual, blending our not for profit experience with cognitive behavioural coaching, practical job skills and career support.
Services are tailor-made according to your needs and are carried out via Skype and email.
