Outplacement Services

Outplacement Services

LGNSW’s outplacement services help councils to support employees when their roles are being made redundant. One of the consequences of organisational restructure can be the loss of capable individuals whose skills and experience are marketable to other employers. Councils can offer outplacement services to help these staff transition to the next stage of their careers.
Outplacement or career transition support services are one-to-one programs that can be tailored to the needs of each individual. Participants can select from a range of topics to make up their coaching program.
  • Managing Career Change - Moving Forward 
  • Career in Review – Mapping your Achievements
  • Transition to Retirement (motivations, options and planning)
  • Professional Resume Development
  • Resume Retargeting
  • Application Letter Development
  • Regular Strategy Sessions – Planning and Momentum
  • Behavioural Interview Coaching/Simulation
  • Career Direction Psychometric Tools preparation
  • LinkedIn and other online Marketing/Branding support
  • Salary Negotiation Coaching


LGNSW’s outplacement services will assist your council to:
  • Ease the stress and anxiety caused by redundancy
  • Allow redundant employees to leave with dignity and provided them with personalised support
  • Recognise the contributions of redundant employees
  • Maintain a professional company image and reputation
  • Maintain the morale of remaining employees
  • Reduce the risk of legal action by helping redundant employees move forward.
