We work with clients who, through choice or circumstances, are actively seeking a new challenge and help them navigate the current job market.
Our approach is always tailored to the individual. We work with clients to understand their specific needs and expectations and develop bespoke plans to prepare them both technically and mentally for their next appointment. This builds confidence ahead of interviews and helps deliver the desired results for the individual.
We use a range of tools and techniques including CV review, 1-2-1 coaching, Career Coaching and Interview Preparation as well as a range of assessments. These enable us to identify key development areas and work with you to improve them.
FAQs about Executive Outplacement
Our approach is not ‘one size fits all’- we work with clients to understand what their individual needs and expectations are. We then develop bespoke plans that align with their personal needs and deliver the desired results for the individual.
The large majority of clients who request our outplacement support are people who have spent many years in the same company, have moved through the ranks and have never been externally interviewed for a director level appointment.
They can also be in a state of shock or otherwise low in confidence, having thought they would remain with their former employer until they retire. With our 30 years in executive search, we are fully aware of what a ‘great’ director looks like within the consumer industry and we will work with individuals to prepare them both technically and mentally for the market, so that when they go for an interview they can do so confident they have the tools to succeed.
A minimum of four 1-2-1 sessions are required. Dependent on budget, ideally six.
Our clients trust us to find the right person at the first time of asking
I’m a huge advocate of Tony and recommend him very strongly. Our relationship spans 10 years, which is testament to his personable way, his expansive network and his proactive approach to executive search.
Tony gives excellent advice, considers all angles and prepares candidates for success through precision planning. From my experience, Tony is the go-to expert in his field and is always my first point of contact!
I have worked with Tony at agp for many years both as a client and a candidate.
Tony has in-depth experience and knowledge of the consumer industry which enables him to really understand the client’s and candidate’s needs and requirements in the interim market. This expertise has translated into great quality interim roles and candidates.
On a personal level Tony is friendly, approachable and responsive which makes him a pleasure to work with.
Past experience has always given me the perception that dealing with a head-hunter can be a long and time consuming business. However, with agp this certainly was not the case. From the initial discussion through to the final interview it was quick, efficient and enjoyable.
Tony is honest, open and easy to talk to. He gives you straightforward feedback at every step and a great deal of support during the whole process. It’s more like dealing with someone you have known for a long time, rather than a business transaction.
I also found that if Tony promised to call you or send something to you he did and it happened on time. You were never left hanging around, uncertain of what should happen next. He delivered everything as promised and in a most professional but friendly manner.
The final thing that surprised me was that Tony does keep in touch. He doesn’t just leave you to get on with it, he’s more like a trusted colleague than a recruitment consultant
