I left my previous job for a better opportunity in January.
Yesterday I received a message from a contact I had made while working at the previous position. This client is the biggest, "most valuable" client of my previous employer.
I hope you are enjoying your new job at [new employer]. Can you help me?
[old employer] continues to have problems so I am looking for another organisation that can provide [service], [service], and other assistance as needed, such as the [product], [product], and [service] for our website. I would like to gather a list of organisations to talk to. Are you able to recommend anyone?
Thanks so much, [client name]
What would be the most appropriate course of action here?
- Do I recommend a list of companies I know can meet the needs of the client?
- Do I contact my previous employer and give them the heads up?
I don't believe I am bound by any agreements with my ex-employer at all.
