The GOA Difference

Born out of the frustration of cookie-cutter business models in the outplacement industry, GOA Partners are united through one passion: to guide people through career challenges to build a rewarding career.

“We believe that each person has unique needs so our programs and approach are always customized”

The GOA Advantage

Organizations need an experienced partner who understands the challenges and nuances of a reduction in workforce. Individual’s need a partner who genuinely cares about their career and guiding them through a successful transition. We combine the best of both worlds.

  • Global + Local: International reach with local market understanding
    With a local presence in domestic and international locations, we truly understand the nuances of the local labour market. Finding jobs is more than just searching online, its about introductions through relationships to hiring companies at the right time.
  • Coaching Centric: we prioritise one-on-one coaching supported by technology resources
    GOA Partner firms believe wholeheartedly that they are serving individuals with unique backgrounds, needs and challenges. Thus our programs are delivered by forging strong 1:1 consultant to client relationships that uncover and address each individual’s career transition needs and challenges.
  • Genuine Care: keenly interested in the people we help.
    GOA members have, in many cases, spent decades serving their local community. They provide outplacement services first and foremost to help people. You can tell the difference from the very first conversation you have with us. We’re hardwired to help.
  • Outcome Focussed: organizational ROI and outcomes for individuals
    In the rapidly changing world of work, outplacement services need to deliver for the organisation and each individual. Organisational reputation is protected as we work closely with clients to minimise the impact of redundancy through empathetic planning. For individuals we first understand what they want, such as getting a new job, reassessing their career or retiring and then help them get there as quickly as possible.
  • Flexible & Responsive: supporting one person to large RIFs.
    Downsizings often happen quickly. We understand the need to respond quickly and have outplacement services mobilised quickly. Our job is to make HR look good, whether it’s one person leaving or a large multi-national reduction-in-force.
