Collins McNicholas have partnered with us over the past number of years in providing outplacement support to impacted individuals in EA Games. The individual outplacement programmes they delivered were completely tailored to each employees role and requirements along their re-employment journey. The sessions provided excellent support, tools and confidence to those who were made redundant. The feedback I received from the participants has been very positive and it appears to have made a significant impact on their employability skills. The whole process was exceptionally seamless and professional.

The Collins McNicholas outplacement programme was tailored to suit the needs of our business and our employees. Their flexibility, empathy and broad knowledge of the local job market gave the attendees the confidence they needed to begin a job search. While some employees were sceptical about attending, following the sessions, all agreed that it was a worthwhile and beneficial service.

Collins McNicholas delivered Group Outplacement support to approx. 30 individuals across two locations in addition to 1:1 sessions. The programme provided excellent support and guidance to those who were made redundant. Feedback from the participants indicated that the sessions were highly informative on current processes and gave them more confidence in taking the next step.

Being based in England and having to support a long-serving, and well-respected colleague, on their exit from our company, in Ireland, was challenging. However, Collins McNicholas’ Executive Outplacement Plus programme allowed us to manage their transition out of the business seamlessly and they felt much more confident in moving forward in their career as a result of the support and advice provided.
