Our subsidiary HR consultancy, Forbury People, has a solution which will provide some really practical help to job seekers without incurring massive costs to the employer.
Employers are always concerned when they have to make jobs redundant and the effect this will have on the involved staff. Many larger organisations will retain an outplacement or career transition company to run either individual or group programmes to help people get back into employment.
However for smaller and medium sized companies the cost of these programmes can be prohibitive and staff are often left to fend for themselves. Given the current economic environment this means that these people now out of work will have an even tougher time finding a new job.
One of our Forbury People Consultants Ian Munro has been involved in Career Transition and Outplacement work for many years. He works with people at all levels in organisations from the shop floor to board directors. In conjunction with ourselves, Ian has written an e-book called "100 + Top Tips for Job Seekers". This e-book is filled with top tips about all the key areas of successful job searching.
These include: Identifying your ideal job, writing a fantastic CV, how to network (over 50% of all jobs are found through contacts), managing agencies, responding to adverts, interview technique, running a successful campaign.
We are able to offer this e-book at a £17.01 + VAT =£19.99, with discounts available for multiple copies.
This is a really practical way you can help your employees by giving them access to Ian`s top tips.
