Breakthrough Career Transition and Career Development


Published on

SMP Solutions Success Guarantee

What sets us apart is our friendly and personable approach and our unique SMP Career Navigation Cycle which sits at the heart of everything we do.

By establishing the key success factors from our own personal career transition experiences and many of our clients, we have developed a simple process that works and have proven this many hundreds of times, so much so that our Director, Steve Preston, recently published his globally acclaimed and inspirational NEW BOOK 'Winning through Redundancy - Six Steps to Navigate your Way to a Brighter Future', showcasing this very topic!

We will work with you using the SMP Career Navigation Cycle to ensure that you start your programme in the right frame of mind, work through each stage in a very logical way that naturally leads you to the next stage and ultimately success!

The process will help you tackle your career transition as a project in a very practical way, immediately giving you a sense of purpose! This helps to get you motivated right from the start, also to achieve and maintain focus keeping you on track.

We work with you to get to the heart of your career aspirations, starting with a personal development review, to really understand your vision or help you create one, to then unlock and maximise your career potential. We will also utilise our wide ranging networks to open up opportunities for you to achieve the right job or career for you!

Life is too short - We will help you transform your life so you look forward to going to work on Mondays, whether employed or self employed!
