Opportunity is now here

The Phoenix Program

Lean into Career Transformation

Our world is changing rapidly around us, and we are all being forced to adapt and evolve. COVID-19 has brought unprecedented challenges to the way we work and the way we deliver our services. Organisations are critically evaluating the capability of their leaders and workforce to take them strongly into the future. People are evaluating their personal and professional lives at a deeper level than ever before and looking for greater purpose and realisation of their own potential. The new normal is now here. The future of work is now here. There has never been a better time for us to sit up and take notice.
We, at Playmakers Consulting Services, have created The Phoenix Program – a dynamic career transition ecosystem that supports, educates, retains necessary and valued current skills, fosters, and builds future skills for greater employability and is on the front foot, not simply meeting job needs of the future, but pro-actively re-designing new jobs for the future economy. Opportunity is now here for us to seize and make a real difference.

Our Objective

To ensure that people of all ages, in any stage of life, manage career transition confidently with enhanced roadmaps, pivoting to align with evolving jobs, professions, and industries with personalised, accessible expert support.

The Phoenix Program has key relevance to Transition Careerees, helping them to recognise the opportunity in the transitional state they find themselves, albeit the state may have been caused due to circumstances outside their control. The opportunity offered to them is multi-fold and when embraced and supported in the right way can help them pivot to re-invent themselves, opening up new experiences with retraining and re-education, taking them further along their new multi-dimensional career journeys into the future of work, way ahead of others who have not had the transition trigger, may be.
