Virtual Outplacement Services

City CV delivers outplacement support services virtually, giving you maximum flexibility. 

Covid-19 means businesses are faced with difficult downsizing and restructuring decisions, alongside restrictions in offering face-to-face support to their employees. That’s why we have invested in making all our outplacement career support services as flexible and accessible as possible. With City CV, you can offer your people a range of virtual, online support to help them transition to a new role quickly and confidently.   

With virtual outplacement services your employees are not constrained by office hours or location. They can schedule their outplacement and career development learning around their work, family commitments or healthcare needs. It also means you can still support them if they are currently unable or reluctant to travel.

How does virtual outplacement work?

We match individuals with the right consultant or coach to meet their needs and provide personalised guidance and support via video calls. We offer a global service that is not restrained by geographical location. After all, industry experience and coaching expertise is far more important than where your consultant is based.

We have invested in innovative technology so our group workshops and webinars can be run online, with interactive breakout rooms for small group coaching.

With our Career Refinery portal and app, your staff have unlimited access to the career support tools and guidance they want, when they want, where they want and at their own pace.  

We believe in helping each of your employees find ‘the right next opportunity’, whether that’s a similar role, a step up, or even something completely different such as starting their own business.

“The support City CV gave to my team and I, at a very difficult time, was invaluable. As a business leader, redundancies have to be one of the hardest situations to be involved in, for all concerned.

City CV’s practical advice and compassionate approach helped my staff feel better prepared for the changes they were facing and more positive about their future prospects.”

Alison Newman

Head of Finance Business Partnering, British Airways

“No one could have prepared the hospitality
industry for the devasting impact of Covid-19. As an employer we wanted to ensure that we supported those people within our business who were impacted by redundancy in the best way we could.

City CV are a natural partner for us. Their specialist team have provided practical and emotional support to our people when they needed it most. The feedback has been extremely positive.”

Sue Stephens

Senior Resourcing, Pizza Hut Restaurants

“We employed City CV’s professional services to help support our colleagues who had selected voluntary redundancy. We wanted to provide them with assistance to find a future role and City CV provided an excellent service which provided a ready-made, fully coordinated programme delivered by a career consultancy.

Their knowledge and experience and the support they provided has made a huge difference to those that have used the service.”
