  5. 5. TESTIMONIALS“I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for an excellent outplacement programme, professionally delivered by a great team. As HR Manager for the site, I have received nothing but positive feedback from the 160 participants, who said that their confidence in finding alternative employment was greatly boosted by their attendance and subsequent follow up one-to-one meetings. I personally was particularly impressed that you managed to pitch the programme just right, which must have been difficult given the wide demographic of the attendees. You showed great empathy and your common sense approach coupled with your broad knowledge of the local job market was very reassuring. I wish you continued success and would have no hesitation whatsoever in using your outplacement service again should the opportunity arise.” Helen Harrington, HR Manager, Tiscali“There is no question in my mind that the preparation I received from your Outplacement Programme led to my successful job offer. Through your assistance, I attended several interviews and entered each one feeling thoroughly prepared and confident. You played a significant role in my new transition.” Senior Executive, Executive Outplacement Programme“As we were shutting a factory that had been operational for over 20 years we wanted to help our mainly manual operator based workforce in finding new opportunities. We needed someone who could speak to and relate to all levels during the outplacement programme and we found the ideal combination at Collins McNicholas. While many employees were sceptical about attending, all found the sessions very useful and helpful, especially our operators. It was a very worthwhile and competitively priced outplacement programme and still continues with Collins McNicholas assisting them in finding employment.” Anthony Murphy, General Manager, Skretting Ireland“The information provided was very professional and informative; and I found the interview preparation particularly useful. The tutor was very flexible and arranged the course times and information in accordance with the groups needs. I would definitely recommend this course to my colleagues.” Engineer, Group Outplacement ProgrammeCONTACT US Colman Collins Niall Murray Sean GannonManaging Director General Manager Regional Manager Dublin/AthloneTel: (091) 706706 Tel: (071) 9142411 Tel: (01) 6620088 / 090 6478104 colman.collins@collinsmcnicholas.ie niall.murray@collinsmcnicholas.ie sean.gannon@collinsmcnicholas.ie Joann McGlinchey Michelle Murphy Antoinette O’FlahertyRegional Manager Cork Regional Manager Galway Regional Manager SligoTel: (021) 4809118 Tel: (091) 706706 Tel: (071) 9142411 joann.mcglinchey@collinsmcnicholas.ie michelle.murphy@collinsmcnicholas.ie antoinette.oflaherty@collinsmcnicholas.ie www.collinsmcnicholas.ie
