Full Service & Virtual Outplacement Services in Victoria
“ CMS provides the perfect combination of support to our HR team, and our outgoing employees ”
Boutique HR Consulting and Outplacement Services for companies of all size in Victoria. The goal at CMS is to provide companies in British Columbia with responsive, professional and personal support that you can rely on to be consistent and meaningful. We have priced our range of outplacement programs so that they can be offered to anyone, irrespective of his or her function, income or career level.
Searching for work and promoting oneself to total strangers in a competitive job market is a lonely and frustrating experience for most people. Our compassionate team and practical resources can make all the difference when one is trying to navigate through a job search.
Ultimately, we are in the ‘helping business’ and every member of our team feels personally responsible for the work we do for our candidates and the HR Managers who introduce them to us.
At CMS, we are all fully aware that our candidates’ success is also our success and reputation. To that end, we do not lock our corporate clients into annual contracts. To us, every job you give us is ‘the first job’ – and we make absolutely sure that you will always be happy to give us the next one!
