New Placement Outplacement

Proximity to people is important to us. Three factors allow us to provide effective professional support: individualised advice, our team’s above-average level of commitment, and our many years of experience on both sides of the recruitment process. These capabilities enable us to focus on all aspects of career transition. Our comprehensive advice is tailored to each individual’s personal situation. We have a modular structure we apply for this process using up to date hand outs as a practical introduction to career progression and use supporting tools along with current insights and Know-How.

Our services differ clearly from the traditional form of outplacement. We offer coaching and advice to people in a career transition phase. Not stopping there, however, we go one step further and combine this with active in-placement and new placement support. Working together with our candidates, we seek out the right job for them, actively involving our in-house network in the process. We help you to position yourself vis-à-vis a potential employer.

We always work on a needs-oriented basis: cooperating closely with the company, we can develop and offer a programme that is tailored to its size and individual needs, taking into account the seniority levels and the job market ‘fit’ of the people concerned. Costs are determined in advance within a set time frame, but the schedule and number of meetings are determined according to the individual situation and requirements. All programmes are individually designed, with no limits on the number or the length of the meetings. The Mäder & Partner New Placement programme is ideal for senior management, executives at all levels, and employees.

Our programme comprises five modules which build on each other to give the best possible preparation for that all-important step up to the next professional challenge.

Module 1: Skills appraisal

Skills appraisal lets you examine your behaviour and inclinations more closely, thereby creating a basis for your career transition.

What questions are asked?

  • How do I communicate?
  • What working style suits me?
  • What contribution can I / would I like to make?
  • How do I react under pressure?
  • What opportunities are open to me and what risks are there?

How do you identify these aspects?

In Module 1 you use one or more personality analysis instruments. You go into a one-to-one ses-sion, during which you can use various aids, such as worksheets and checklists which we supply both online and in hard copy. Your personal adviser supports you in this key self-perception phase and reflects your outward nature back to you by means of proven coaching methods.
