“We wanted to help staff with their career development. The training and 1:1 personal coaching sessions delivered by Personal Career Management have helped staff take stock and assess their options, where they are heading and how they can get there. Personal Career Management are skillful, wise, flexible and understanding facilitators and I fully recommend them.”
Val Ward, L&D Manager, Historic Royal Palaces
“The Royal College of Psychiatrists brought in Corinne and her colleagues from Personal Career Management to deliver a series of 1:1 coaching sessions to our staff. Slots were quickly oversubscribed and feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Staff received preparatory materials in advance which allowed them to get the most out of their sessions, and reported being given a broad range of tailored advice that really helped shape plans for the future. We have gone on subsequently to book further sessions and are looking forward to another couple of batches this year. Would thoroughly recommend.”
Hannah Lucas, Royal College of Psychiatrists
“The feedback from everyone who participated in the programmes was uniformly excellent, including those who had initially been cynical about how outplacement services could be of help. Their high levels of expertise and knowledge enabled them to quickly establish their credibility. They were very skilled at handling people sensitively and had an approach that was positive, pragmatic and helpful. This was of great benefit to the staff. As a result, I would highly recommend Personal Career Management”.
Peter Andrews, former Chief Executive of LTGDC
“We have been very pleased with the level of service we have received and more importantly our employees report back that they too have been very impressed. One thing that has been really valued is the quality of coaching which has been to a depth people hadn’t expected and people have felt well supported in this space. This has been a critical factor in the success of our people. As a Company we have also felt well supported with the quick response to pick up some very individual and specific requests we have made and feel that the service has been flexible enough to meet our needs.”
Jo Cochrane, HR Business Partner, Capital One
“Personal Career Management provided us with a very high level of expertise; an understanding of the various issues associated with the individual aspects of redundancy, professionalism in their approach and undertook the administrative aspects themselves. We used a two pronged approach with them which included an ‘open’ workshop looking at the external marketplace and an overview of CV writing and interviews, coupled with a one to one meeting afterwards to address individual concerns and issues. The feedback on these sessions was highly positive and uplifting which is to their credit in such difficult circumstances. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Personal Career Management to anyone.”
Alison Heaney, HR Director, Travelex Currency Services
“Thank you for your assistance during what has been a very stressful and difficult time for the company. Your willingness to come alongside and assist in supporting members of staff who had become increasingly frustrated and worried about re-entering the job market has been incredibly beneficial to us as a company. I would highly recommend your services to any other company facing a similar redundancy situation and will certainly consider using any additional services your company provides in the future.”
Rachel Swift, HR Manager, Lansdowne
“We appointed Personal Career Management to carry out outplacement workshops for employees who were at risk of redundancy. The level of service, flexibility and professionalism was exceptional and we received nothing but positive feedback from the attendees. I would have no hesitation in recommending Personal Career Management and look forward to working with them in the future whether with outplacement, coaching or career workshops.”
Gemma Bicknell, HR Manager, Avnet
Corporate Case Studies
Following our decision to close down our Purley site we were very keen to support our staff, that were being made redundant, by ensuring that they had the skills to secure alternative employment as soon as possible. A fair number of our people had been employed by the business for over 10 years, some for over 20 years.
Clearly losing your job at any time is unwelcome so we wanted to find a firm that could run sessions to ease the transition for our people into the job search market. We chose Personal Career Management as they were passionate about what we wanted to achieve and, at the same time, were competitive on the pricing. I am delighted to say that the feedback on the sessions run by Personal Career Management has been first class. All staff came out of the sessions visibly more confident about their prospects. Not only did the team feel motivated by the session but they felt well equipped with the additional knowledge of how both recruitment agencies and employers use various techniques within their websites to scan CV’s and applications.
Whilst the sessions dealt with the practicalities of CV writing, importance of LinkedIn and interview techniques, very well, one of the consistent positives from the team was the confidence building element. A lot of the people came out very focused on what they can do, skills they do have, rather than the negative angle. This I believe has, already, helped a number of them secure new jobs. If you are going through a similar process I would recommend Personal Career Management very highly.
I also reached out to the team members, across differing levels, and asked for their feedback, which is shown below:
“Really powerful stuff which has transformed my approach to job hunting. So many useful hints and tips, must do’s and definitely don’ts!”,
“Brilliant workshop and a real eye opener to what employers expect to see on a CV nowadays.”
Richard Cartwright, Head of Service Delivery, Computershare
