Bespoke 1:1 Consultation Services - Osborne
Bespoke 1:1 Consultation Services

The Background:
A Further Education organisation based in the Leinster/Greater Dublin area, 14 roles across the company were made redundant due to a restructuring project and market conditions at the time. The individuals affected by this restructure were a mix of levels of experience and seniority. This organisation reached out to Osborne following previous successful projects in order to provide support on a personal, 1:1 level.

The Actions:

Osborne offered up to five 1:1 consultations to each individual. No group workshops took place due to the various experience levels. It was more appropriate that each person was spoken to on an individual basis to get an understanding of their mindset and how they see their career going forward. Each individual was at a different stage in their career across various departments ranging from Sales to Marketing to IT and more.

Each session was completely bespoke and personalised to the individuals needs. This allowed the freedom for each person to take the programme at their own pace.

The key topics and supports in the sessions covered:

  • CV Assessment
  • Identification of Skill Gaps
  • Job Search Techniques
  • Interview Preparation
  • Counselling/Psychotherapy
  • Financial Advice
  • Networking Skills & Advice
  • Psychometric Testing

At all times throughout the programme, there was a Dedicated Coach available that the affected individuals could speak to at any stage should they have any further questions or queries.

The Results:

All 14 individuals following the programme were equipped and ready for the next stage of their careers and their lives.

  • 57% of Attendees were Employed within 6 months of the programme.
  • 14% of Attendees decided to take a Career Break following the programme.
  • 7% of Attendees took a New Path in their career.
