Information, Advice and Guidance for Employers (I.A.G.)

Career Management

The work environment is changing very quickly now and companies are focusing on the best way to find and to keep the “best people.” More and more, organizations are looking to develop their staff.


We help companies change their replaceable workforce to a renewable one by re-energising your employees and helping them realise their full potential.


We do this through a combination of career management, upskilling and reskilling your staff.

The outcome for you is increased employee motivation, productivity and retention.


Career management is a necessary tool to assist us in achieving both personal and professional goals. With good career management, we can make the proper and timely decisions along the way with confidence.


Smart employers support employees in their efforts to grow professionally.


Career planning is a subset of career management and it is the process of reassessing individual learning and development over a period of time.


Our holistic approach to training and personal development means we work with you and your staff to understand and deliver what both parties want or need.


Redundancy can be a difficult time and, with so many different offers of support for individuals and companies, it can be confusing to know how to access help for your staff. Many businesses have no previous experience of handling wide-scale redundancy programmes and are unsure of the best way to support the staff impacted.


Through our team of specialist advisers, we can offer support not only to you as you face that process, but also to those being made redundant, helping your staff on the first steps towards finding alternative employment.


We will work with you and your business to offer information, advice, guidance, support and training, helping those affected by:


Identifying their skills, experience and strengths

Helping them to understand the job market

Assisting in creating their CV and covering letter

Improving their interview skills and job search skills

Building their confidence

Offering careers advice, particularly looking at retraining, self-employment or returning to education

Managing the stress of change


We can also help with assessment centres, psychometric profiling and career coaching.


Such outplacement services can be tailored to the individual in order to meet their specific needs and timeframes, or alternatively offered in group sessions to suit your budget.


We can help you with your recruitment of staff in a number of ways:


Advertise your job with us for free of change

(we will promote it through social media and at events with clients)

Supporting you as you write Job Descriptions, Person Specifications and Advertisements.

Handling applications, sifting and interviewing first stage (or any one aspect of this)

Second Stage interviewing – with you – including setting up appropriate tests and skills assessment.


If you are an organisation that aims to tackle a challenge or achieve its picture of success, please read on.
