Executive outplacement program

The Executive Outplacement Program is a three month multi-pronged approach to finding your executives and staff the type of employment they truly desire. This program runs over a 3 month period, of the date chosen by the candidate.

The program helps executives overcome challenges and builds their confidence in moving into their next career chapter. Outcomes by the end of the three months are: 

  • Creation of a resume that accurately reflects achievements and which targets roles suitable to the executive
  • Clarity over the direction the executive wishes to take
  • A recruitment search that is relevant to the needs and wants of the executive
  • An understanding of the hidden job market and how to utilise connections

All of the above are developed with personalised consideration of each executive’s own situation. A Hays expert will be dedicated to the program and provide individual attention by coaching, guiding, and supporting the executive through the program. The Hays contact will tap into Hays opportunities by liaising with our Executive Recruitment Consultants throughout the program.
