Executive Career Transition
Helping top people leave your organisation: (It can be tough leaving and finding a new career)
Asking members of your senior management team to leave is tough. You know them well and have soldiered with them – often for many years – through difficult times. They’re shocked by the news. As senior executives, they have committed themselves fully to the organisation. They are unprepared for what lies ahead.
As a responsible employer, you want to support them. Your reputation amongst other employees as well as external customers and suppliers will be impacted by the way you handle this delicate situation. However, their seniority can make it difficult to provide the support ‘in-company’. That’s where we can help. At Bridgespan, we have the expertise and understanding to support the executive transition to his or her new career.
This includes providing comprehensive 1-to-1 assistance to:
- Come to terms with their new circumstances
- Understand how today’s recruitment market operates
- Re-enter the job market competently
- Present themselves confidently to prospective employers.
- Move successfully into the next phase of their career
At Bridgespan we recognise the unique needs of senior executives in transition – we provide career transition support only to senior employees.
The more senior the role, the fewer external career opportunities that exist. It follows that it normally takes time to secure a suitable role. We work with them throughout this time. Executives who are not expertly supported will struggle with their new situation.
