If you have been made redundant and your company are offering you a redundancy package as part of your settlement agreement, you may be able to include career coaching costs in your redundancy pay. Going back out into the job market can be a daunting time and career coaching supports individuals through this process. Whether you want to explore career options and be clear and focused about what next or need support in the job search process, working with a career coach on a career management programme can help.
By including career coaching services in your settlement agreement, also known as Outplacement, you will also make tax savings at the value of these services. This also does not come off your £30,000 allowance when part of a settlement agreement. So including outplacement services now rather than after a few months trying it alone can save you thousands.
With today’s challenging job market and so many job seekers going for the same jobs, working on a 1-1 basis with a career coach can increase your chances of job search success in the following ways:
1. Get a well written CV targeted at the jobs you are applying for and ensuring it gets noticed.
2. Access to online job resources and a research manager helping you to compile company and head hunter lists to target.
3. Learn how to make the most of social media and how it can benefit your job search.
4. Get practical interview training to increase confidence and help tackle those difficult interview questions.
These are some of the ways outplacement services can help you to move into your next role.
