Outplacement Solutions

Our outplacement service is designed to give your staff the skills and confidence to go into a crowded market place and get the job they need as soon as possible.

In a very tough climate, it pays to have an Inspired CV!


Redundancy is a highly personal and daunting experience, and this is why we individually tailor our approach to each affected member of staff and your organisation as a whole.

We have 15 years’ experience working within recruitment and employability and are experts at promoting an individual’s skills for effective personal marketing.
We are not a global business, and therefore have neither the means nor the inclination to offer set programmes that ignore the individual needs of both your staff and your organisation.
Instead, our packages can offer a variety of services beyond simply a CV, including tailored cover letters, LinkedIn design and specialised coaching, guaranteeing every individual’s requirements are fully catered to.
This personalised service ensures affected members of staff are fully aware of your concern over their future, maintaining the image and reputation of your organisation.

Benefits to your business
  • This is a more cost-effective option than enhanced statutory redundancy
  • You will maintain a positive reputation within the market
  • Offering a personalised process like ours has a hugely positive impact on staff retention during your restructure

Customer Testimonial

"Inspired CVs were brought into Kwik Fit to undertake an outplacement process to assist around 100 staff who were being made redundant. At the outset, the company’s director David met all the staff and explained why he had been brought in and how he could help.

Many of the staff had been with Kwik Fit for 20 years or more, and were obviously very anxious with the thought of having to look for alternative employment. Inspired CVs and their team of trained staff excelled at supporting each individual and making them believe in themselves. Inspired CVs were able to tailor their services to the needs of each employee, several of whom have now gained full time employment.

All of the Inspired CVs team worked in a friendly, professional and focused manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending them."
