“I was very lucky to be given outplacement coaching with Philippa. Her advice and help were invaluable in setting up my own business. She tailors her service to suit your individual requirements, and is supportive, encouraging and a mine of useful information. She is generous with her time and resources, provides practical and constructive help, and is a delight to work with.”

“Philippa's broad and in-depth knowledge of her business is complemented by a fine understanding of how to get the best out of you. She offers sound advice and imaginative options in a measured yet totally positive way; however, her greatest attribute is that in the process she restores your confidence and self belief.”

Andrew, senior credit analyst for an investment bank in London

 

"I worked with Opportune for a few months and found their counsel, insight and professionalism outstanding. On our initial consultation I found them engaging and enthusiastic. The significant difference between OC and other outplacement companies (and head hunters) is the breadth of their experience and ability to tailor resources to the individual.

 

OC is not just about networking and CV writing, they offer "counselling" which I found to be invaluable. I intend to retain their services and encourage anyone looking for change in their career to get in touch.

"Opportune make a complex thing simple.  I met Philippa when I wasn't sure about future career directions.  I was great at arguing myself to a standstill, I could post-rationalise any event, I could over-intellectualise any situation but I had no clue to what would suit me well or how to find it.  All I knew was that my 'old world' no longer suited me and didn't seem to have much of a future.  The trick was to stop waffling, get on with it and find the new world.

Their process is a beguilingly simple one.  After not many sessions we worked towards a clear route forward, they provided some immensely useful tools to make the new direction achievable and some very helpful suggestions.  Opportune do lots of other things I'm sure, but what they did for me was to give me some kind of perspective when I was never going to find it myself and for that I owe them an enormous debt of gratitude."

"I came to Opportune to help support me in a job search in my late-30's. As the positions I was looking for were largely unadvertised, it required exploring the 'hidden' jobs market through my network. Being British – networking and talking about myself was not my favourite pastime but I was encouraged and challenged by Opportune throughout the process and, to my surprise, found doors opening that I would never otherwise have known about. I am due to start a new job with one of the large banks in April and am tremendously excited about it. Opportune's assistance has been invaluable and I would not hesitate in recommending them"
