career management for organisations

We offer a range of in-company executive career development programmes

We offer a range of in-company executive career development programmes. We specialise in helping organisations create career development conversations to help retain talented staff.

Programmes and services available:

  • Career management – helping to plan their future career
  • Structured career conversations to assist with talent retention
  • Career realignment – helping demotivated or confused staff to find new pathways within the organisation
  • Preparation for internal selection processes

JLA’s career management programmes are tailored to the needs of the individual rather than being a preset set of meetings and exercises. All of our consultants have extensive business experience as well as being proficient career coaches.

Programmes are offered nationally up to executive level.
