​It’s the first full week back at work after the Christmas break and if you’re reading this… chances are you are already thinking, ‘Do I want to spend the rest of 2020 in my current role?’

For many, a new year marks an opportunity to hit the reset button and decipher what it is in our lives we would like to change or improve.

Over a lifetime, the average person spends 90,000 hours at work, so naturally if you aren’t happy and this could be an area of your life you could improve, it is important to explore what else is out there.

In the age of technology, there are multiple websites you can head to and begin your job search, however, this can be time consuming and often you are left trawling through job advertisements that are not even relevant to you.

Our advice?

Search for recruitment agencies that specialise in your field or ask around and see if friends or family have had a good experience with any agencies themselves. Rather than being faced with a computer generated list of jobs which might suit you, you can speak to a trained consultant who has experience working with people in your industry.

A good recruitment consultant will have spent the time working to specialise and so will understand industry terms and what is required of people in different roles. They will also be able to quickly assess what roles you have suitability for, the businesses your personality will fit into and whether your skills could lead you to a promotion.

What have you got to lose? Registering and applying for roles with agencies costs you nothing and saves you time!
