OUTPLACEMENT SUPPORT 

Bloom offers personalised support and guidance for employees who have recently been made redundant and/or who need assistance in making a career transition. ​ Individuals faced with the prospect of finding a new job may be feeling a mixture of emotions: fear, trepidation, anger, stress, sadness, or possibly excitement and enthusiasm. A change in employment brings about different reactions from different people and everyone’s journey is unique.

Having experienced a redundancy myself I am acutely aware of the spectrum of emotions that people can experience and one thing I know for sure is that support is crucial during the career transition period.  I offer employees compassionate, sincere, professional support to help them navigate through their career transition and to explore, identify and define what they want for their future.



During my outplacement programs I facilitate the process of self-exploration and discovery to determine people's career preferences and work with them to understand their unique circumstances, thereby tailoring programs according to their individual needs. 

 

I focus on helping individuals explore the following:

Emotional Support / Mindset Management/ Identifying Values, Passions and Purpose

 

  • Working through the individual’s emotional reaction to news, how to communicate to friends and family

  • Assessing the current situation, what are the core priorities right now? e.g financial, emotional etc

  • Identifying what concerns and fears about the future exist (real or perceived), and ways to overcome them

  • Identifying limiting beliefs and potential barriers to success

  • Exploring Core Values & Beliefs to work out what’s most important and what drives you 

  • Clarifying personal preferences, wants vs "shoulds", situation assessment (financial, emotional etc)

                       

Building Confidence & Defining Goals       

     

  • Skills, knowledge and strengths inventory – what do you do well and how do you do it differently to others? What makes you unique?

  • Promoting your unique selling points/developing a personal brand

  • Articulating SMART goals for the future - i.e where do I want to be and what needs to happen in order for me to get there?

 

Developing Job Search Skills

 

  • S.T.A.R Model

  • Interview skills coaching

  • Utilising recruitment agencies

  • Understanding and responding to Key Selection Criteria

  • Developing cover letter content

  • Exploring education pathways for new career options

  • Networking, identifying job leads and harnessing social media, e.g LinkedIn

  • Understanding the application process and what recruiters are searching for

Confidence is a mental game. As a mindset coach, I will work with you to develop your awareness of your strengths and help you articulate your unique selling proposition so that you truly understand your value.

Step out of your comfort zone 

Explore the possibilities ahead of you. I can help you examine your options and explore what opportunities may be ahead of you. Step out of the nest and come exploring with me. I will be there with you all along the way.
