If you talk to past Chiumento delegates they’ll often say that working with their Chiumento consultant was a defining moment in their lives. Not just because their outplacement Consultant knew their stuff – but because their style and approach was uniquely suited to their needs. We take huge care in choosing consultants so that we have not just technical excellence but also a diverse range of personal styles and backgrounds.
Our client development team know every consultant well. They take the same care in getting to know your people too. Every new delegate undergoes a detailed telephone discussion so that we understand their needs, objectives, concerns and preferences. Only then do we match them to one of our expert team. 99% of the time we get it right first time – getting the perfect chemistry between delegate and consultant.
We have deliberately and carefully built a highly flexible outplacement delivery model around the UK. Rather than making delegates travel to a small number of regional offices we have instead develop a network of hundreds of local delivery points all chosen for provding discrete, professional and above all accessible meeting places. From city centre business centres to country house hotels, our consultants meet their delegates where it suits them.
Every individual programme starts with a detail and structured assessment of individual needs. Often the discovery will be the first face-to-face meeting between delegate and consultant so it also verifies that we have got the chemistry right!
The discovery ensures we understand exactly where the individual is and the goals they want to achieve during the programme. We explore not just career objectives but also how work fits into the individual’s wider life plan. We also sensitively address emotional state – making sure that individuals are in the right place to learn. We can bring in specialist counsellors if required.
Every delegate will be matched with a consultant who has the right blend of technical skills and personal style to maximise the value of the programme.
