Career change

In this section our experts talk about career change and discuss when it's the right time to try something new. If work life's getting you down, you might just find the motivation you need here to move on and grow.

Deciding to quit your job can be one of the toughest decisions you’ll ever make. Change can be scary, especially when it means leaving behind the people and processes you know, to move on into a new strange environment with people you’ve never met. However, when work life is making you miserable, quitting your job may well be the very best thing you ever did!

Many people decide to quit having found an alternative position first and this is usually the most sensible route. Employers seem more willing to take on those who are already employed, and you’ll have a steady stream of income uninterrupted by the job change. However, sometimes making the decision to quit also means leaving behind the role itself. It might even be time to look at some new, exciting training courses and take an entirely different career path!

Our recruitment and careers experts have taken many of these worries and considerations into account when producing articles for this section on career change. We hope these guides prove useful in helping you decide how to shape your future. Good luck!
