Considering a job change in the new year? Read If You Could Jobs’ latest guide

Our weekly round-up of jobs posted on our sister site, If You Could Jobs, plus this month’s advice on what to consider when thinking about changing your career.

3 December 2021

This month’s guide, written by Sarah Trounce, explores five key questions to ask yourself when considering a shift in your career.

For many, the end of one year and the beginning of another is a great time to look ahead and ask yourself: What next? Along with all the usual resolutions, it might be a good idea to give your job frustrations and career aspirations some frosty-fresh oxygen. Temporarily free of deadlines and meetings, you may be surprised by the positive difference some unhurried contemplation can make to the job-hunting process.

Looking for a new job is a bit like building a house. To start with, you might have a wildly ambitious wish list – say, a life-changing salary, awesome benefits, incredible office, hilarious colleagues, a worthy cause to fight for. But there will naturally be compromises along the way, since work is a practical concern as much as an emotional and intellectual one. Whatever the shape and size and colour scheme of the role you finally step into, the groundwork is key: strong foundations, a sufficient and hopefully inspiring setting, and enough room to adapt and grow.

Using this short guide, you’ll pinpoint what excites and motivates you; understand what you alone can contribute to a workplace; get clarity on what you want to gain in return; identify the kind of working culture you feel most comfortable in; and begin to suss out where you want to get to eventually.
