"Manufacturing outplacement is often due to factory closure. Over the past 25 plus years we've helped people from all sectors including food, automotive and retail, transition into the next phase of their career"

Manufacturing outplacement

Our experience

Over the past 25 years we've worked with manufacturers from various different sectors across the UK. From ad-hoc outplacement needs to partnering on large-scale redundancy and change programmes, our programmes offer the flexibility to suit all needs, requirements and budgets.

Food factory Closure

During the programme we ran over 60 workshops, attended by 250 members of staff, more than 120 people had 1-2-1 meetings with a Chiumento consultant, we organised 2 recruitment fairs and by the end of the programme more than 80% of delegates had found new employment.

Large scale change

We provided support at a factory that had been operating for more than 100 years with many of it's staff having spent their entire working life with the organisation. We ran workshops, coaching sessions and gave access to our wealth of online support materials.

Ongoing support

We don't just work on large redundancy or change programmes.  We can help whether you're letting 1, 100 or 1,000 people go.  We have helped manufacturers with redundancies outside of factory closure, with R&D departments for example. Providing ongoing outplacement support to departing staff of all levels and functions.

Our digitally-driven delivery model means your people can access the best advice, the most comprehensive resources and on demand support whenever they want and wherever they are.

Outplacement at the most senior level is less about speed and more about taking time to make the right decisions. It's about having the right advice from the right people. We will arrange coaching tailored to your Executive’s specific objectives.

Our approach to manufacturing outplacement

Digitally driven with the human touch

We like to do things a little differently.  Technology has changed the world in which we live and work and we’ve changed outplacement to reflect this.  Where historically delegates needed to travel to offices to receive their outplacement training, now they can do this at a location close to them.  Taking away the wasted time and money spent on unnecessary travel.  In fact, if they want they can conduct their coaching sessions via video conferencing, removing the need to travel at all.

While all our programmes are digitally-driven, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a human touch.  It just means that our delegates benefit from all that technology has to offer, while still receiving coaching and advice from real people.  Whereas generic group sessions were the norm, we now focus on giving everyone a personalised programme.  Giving them the ability to focus on the areas which they require the most help.  It’s not just about writing a CV, which we do for our delegates by the way, but about interview practice, networking advice, how to manage retirement or advice for setting up on your own. outplacement for retail
