“I never expected to gain so much from a 3 day course. My Tutor’s cheerful and informative presentations filled me confidence, optimism and all the skills necessary to change my career. Her advice on CVs and Interview techniques were highly beneficial. Her patience and calm manor made everyone feel at ease and her endeavour to help every one of us was commendable. Thank you,” Furniture Maker, January 2018 Manufacturing Sector


“I would like to thank my coach for her assistance in creating a C.V after 30 years of employment and finding myself made redundant. A strange feeling to be in but Rachel has this calming affect that really helped me in my progression to get back on track looking for my next career move.
She is a professional and a friend all rolled in to one, I would highly recommend the support to anyone who needs career coaching, although I hope I don’t need my coaches help again but I will certainly keep in touch with her.” Development Manager August 2017 Finance Sector


“Redundancy sucks, redundancy after decades leaves you behind the I ball in so many ways. My coach single-handily gave me the coaching and support to navigate through to a new career. Partly through CV advice & cover letter pruning, also through personal 1 2 1 interview role play- I really was ready for my interviews. My coach supports & challenges in equal measure but also makes time for shared interests. I hope I don’t need her expertise again but if you need any of the above, she will provide it.” Retail Manager July 2017 Finance Sector



“My tutor helped me to improve my computer knowledge and profile, which has led to me updating my CV and gaining employment.” Hospital Porter July 2017


“I would highly recommend the coaching support if you have any needs on recruitment or have been made redundant lately, my coach was very helpful in guiding me and recommending me on what I needed to do next after I was made redundant, I have since found another job, but if I found myself in a position where I needed help again I would be asking my coach for help with this.” Development Manager July 2017 Finance Sector



“I was fortunate enough to take three career coaching sessions with TalentRidge. My coach was an excellent listener, and follows up immediately on the 1:1 sessions, with a plethora of information and links to help you find what you are looking for and to make yourself more visible to potential employers. This was a valuable experience, and my coach gave me the push I needed, as well as information I wouldn’t have found on my own. I felt fired up, excited and ready to go and make my new career happen. Thanks to my coach’s help I was persistent, and was offered a job which I really wanted, and which was in a great part due to her guidance. I would thoroughly recommend TalentRidge Coaching support to anyone. April 2017, Senior Management Public Sector. “


“My coach provided extremely helpful advice and support revising my CV, she was able to guide me in career choices and in addition sourced appropriate posts relevant to my experience and interests. I found her help to be invaluable.” March 2017 Events/Customer Accounts Executive



“TalentRidge provided a cv writing and interview techniques course. The Company was closing and many had been employed for 20 plus years, the thought of going out into the unknown was quite daunting for many of us. After the course, we all felt positive and ready to take on our new challenge. Many of us have found new roles so thank you TalentRidge for giving us the confidence that we could find alternative employment.” Accounts Assistant. February 2017 Manufacturing Sector


“I had been asking myself for some time, where am I going with my career, what would really float my boat, and how would I go about making the necessary changes?  Nevertheless, it is unlikely I would have done much about it on my own.  However, I was fortunate enough to be offered three sessions with Talentridge by my employer.  My coach is an excellent listener, and follows up immediately on the 1:1 sessions, with a plethora of information and links to help you find what you are looking for and to make yourself more visible to potential employers.  This has been a valuable experience, My coach has given me the push I needed, as well as information I wouldn’t have found on my own.  I feel fired up, excited and ready to go and make my new career happen.”  Senior Manager, Public Sector  April 2016



“A professional service offering support and guidance in a respectful and understanding environment.  The careers coach took the time to understand each person’s circumstances and was therefore able to advise and suggest ideas and ways forward to suit accordingly.  Most useful a strategy for answering competency  interview questions, Up to date format for a CV and Cover letter.    Just having a listening ear to provide a time for reflection and planning for the future was of benefit. Thank you!”  Teacher

(HR Manager)


“Having been made redundant after 20 years I found your expertise invaluable in helping me create a professional CV along with practicing interview techniques. I have no doubt that without this specialised expert help and support I wouldn’t have secured my current position which is so much more than my previous job with great career prospects.”
(Contract Manager - Executive Career Coaching following redundancy)


“I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone looking for outplacement support. I felt very positive and motivated after our sessions, and when required replay these to myself. The quality of the service given was excellent and very timely. Your ability and knowledge to understand the sector that I am looking at was spot on and allowed for very focussed sessions. In addition to this it gave me the opportunity to discuss my options with someone who could draw out the needs and desires for the positions. A very honest approach which gave food for thought.”
(Marketing Manager – Executive Career Coaching)


“Your Career development support has been really useful, I needed someone to talk to who had an expert understanding of the jobs market and what employers are currently looking for, sometimes you need to get objective advice from a professional not just friends and family”
(Secondary School Teacher)


 

“All the staff found the interviews and training very helpful and they really appreciated your friendly but professional manner. Thanks again for the support.” 
(Deputy Head Teacher).


“The Executive Coaching support that I received from the staff was extremely useful, they deliver a very professional service and their staff are knowledgeable and helpful.  With their support I was able to identify my Leadership and Management strengths, areas for development and greatly improve my self marketing campaign” 
(Ann Lewis, Senior Manager)


“I have worked with the Team for HR Support, Careers Advice and Psychometric testing. Both myself and my staff have been very well supported, both when they initially provided a Change Management Programme, which included Training Needs Analysis and One to One Careers Advice and more recently with Response to Redundancy Support, Personality Assessments, Occupational Interests Profiling and Training Workshops in CV Writing and Interview Techniques.

The professionalism of the staff was excellent, but more importantly their friendly and helpful manner has been invaluable during a very difficult time.

Booking the courses and workshops could have been quite problematic, due to the fact that we are a 24 hour emergency service, but the consultants, worked hard to make sure they provided the service we required, exactly when we needed it”.
(Control Manager, Fire & Rescue Service)


‘We have used the services for help with careers advice and psychometric testing. They provided 1-2-1 careers sessions, and where appropriate offered Occupational Interests Profiling. Employee feedback rated the consultants very favourably, with our staff commenting on the benefits of talking to a specialist careers adviser. Sessions left ‘ staff motivated, focused and with a clear direction on what they needed to do to advance their personal career progression.

We found our designated consultant to be both efficient in her processes and able to successfully manage the diversity of information needed by our employees. She was reliable and professional and provided us with a quality personal development solution.’
(Training Coordinator, Call Centre Service)


“I would highly recommend the Constancy Team following the support they provided EEDA through our Response to Redundancy programme.

The Trainers delivered a series of half-day workshops on CV Writing, Job Searching and Interviews Skills to staff facing redundancy. They were knowledgeable, professional and extremely supportive during a time that can be difficult and stressful.

Our staff found these workshops very informative, reassuring and flexible; the trainers adapted each session to suit the needs of delegates to address their specific needs and concerns, as well as helping to highlight and reassure staff that they have many transferable skills. The trainers also amended the training material and handouts the suit the skill level and experience of our staff.

Following the service and support provided by the trainers, I feel our staff were much more confident about their job-searching and were better prepared to secure alternative employment”.
(Annette Shipton. Senior Executive – Learning & Development EEDA)


“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything that you have done to help me and my staff with retraining options. Your level of service has been second to none and you have treated us with the utmost respect and professionalism to which we are all very grateful.

You have shown us how we can benefit from retraining and the funds available to us to help us with this. I have recommended you to several other departments within the fire and rescue service and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
