To go or not to go….that is the question

Is your career at a crossroads?  Do you dread going to work everyday?  Are you wishing the hours away due to boredom?  If yes is the answer to any of those questions, the time is right to start planning a career move.

Think about your job search carefully.  If you are only looking for a salary increase, discuss the matter with your boss before making any drastic life changing plans.  If they are unable to increase your salary or you are looking to leave for any other reason, speak to a specialist recruiter for accurate market advice as they will be able to advise on suitable options as well as provide salary advice.

By thinking about your dream role and what you need to do to get it, your plan of action will start to take shape. This next move could be the one that lands you your dream role, or it could be a stepping stone making your dream job more attainable.  Be flexible but be realistic.  You will certainly have more roles to consider if you are flexible on location, but if you have kids at school and a partner who works and who would also need to find a new job plus a house to sell, how realistic is relocation really?

Looking for a new job is not only stressful but can be really time consuming.  It’s not for the feint hearted but a professional and knowledgeable recruitment consultant will ease the burden and will provide you with the best tools to succeed.
